Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The projects in this book may be bohemian-inspired, but they’re more haute than hippie. Jewelry designers Eurto and Siegel work with ribbons and cords in their designs, and the contrast between these softer materials and the beads and stones in their jewelry is a source of inspiration." - Library Journal

"So what is a 'bohemian,' anyway? By the looks of this luscious book it is a woman who favors a soft, fluttery style accented with bits of silky ribbon, shiny beads and a supple leather strap or two (50 Shades fans, take note!). All the projects incorporate unusual elements...buttons, lace scraps, ceramic letters, leather knots, braid scraps...that surprise and inspire. The technique illustrations are both pretty and illuminating and the photography of the finished projects is both alluring and detailed enough to provide further clarification and direction to the hobbyist. Overall, a lovely addition to a jewelry-maker's library." - Publishers Weekly

"Beautiful photography, great techniques and a well laid-out format. Whether you are an experienced beader, or a week-ender—this book has lots of information on beading techniques." - Amanda Davie

"Love this book. I seriously have pages dog-earred all over the place. So many awesome ideas!" - Amy Freeland, Copper Diem

"Lorelei and Erin do a great job with introducing fibers in jewelry-making. It opens up so many possibilities! The use of fibers can help facilitate making quick projects that look stunning." - Andrew Thornton

"The layout and the photos are really great in this book and one of my favorite things is not only do they list step-by-step instructions, but also reference the tools and techniques used in each piece." - Barbara Bechtel, Second Surf

"It's fun, funky and I can't find one design I wouldn't want to wear out on a Saturday afternoon looking for antiques or sipping cafe au lait with friends." – Beth Hemmila, Hint Jewelry

"This will be an oft-referenced resource in my library. There are enough projects in here that delight my senses and tickle my fancy that I will keep coming back for more." - Erin Prais-Hintz, Treasures Found: Inspiration is Everywhere

"The book design is lush and the projects are inviting! It is always exciting to add a few new techniques to your design tool belt and there are many I am excited to try like the half-hitch knot and the half-hitch knotted loop!" - Gaea Cannaday

"A book that will have the bead world buzzing this summer!" - Heather Powers, ArtBeadScene.com

"One of my favorite new art books." - Kathleen Lange Klik

"It's gorgeous (really stunning photography), inspiring and helpful!" - Keirsten Giles

"A beautiful book." - Kristie Roeder

"The book has a ton of design ideas that will appeal to virtually everyone. Silk thread for knotting gemstones, elegant velvet ribbon for a lariat, leather in earrings...there are all kinds of things to look at and inspire you." - Lori Anderson, Pretty Things

"Every piece looks like it stepped right out of a high end catalog for an edgy, hip boutique style store. And the best part of all, these generous designers share their secrets for using a variety of ribbons, leathers and cords so that you, too, can create bohemian inspired jewelry for your friends and family! Sumptuous, exotic, inspiring and lush and filled with innovative techniques, this is an absolute must have for any serious beader's library." - Margot Potter

"The book is full of amazingly beautiful projects." - Melanie Brooks, Earthenwood Studio

"Wonderfully unconventional jewelry designs." - Pearl Blay - The Beading Gem's Journal

"These ladies have some serious talent wracked up between them." - Rebecca Anderson, Song Beads

"The instructions cover everything you need to know...from all the basics of using leather, ribbon, and cords, up to more advanced

Library Journal
The projects in this book may be bohemian-inspired, but they're more haute than hippie. Jewelry designers Eurto and Siegel work with ribbons and cords in their designs, and the contrast between these softer materials and the beads and stones in their jewelry is a source of inspiration. Most of the projects incorporate little more than basic stringing and knotting techniques, although some projects explore simple wirework. Advanced crafters could easily customize their pieces further by handcrafting clasps and other findings. VERDICT These attractive yet simple designs will appeal to a variety of tastes.

    Highly Practical & Inspiring

    Not only are the projects attractive, wearable, and inspiring, but most valuable to me as a new beader/jewelry maker are the sections on materials, tools, techniques & resources. Highly recommended.

    great book

    Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry is a great book that helps you find your individual style and creativity in making jewelry. I have been following Lorelei's blog for several years and am thrilled to see her, along with Erin Siegel, present her craft.

    However, the book came damaged because of how it was packed, and I find this very frustrating.

    Almost Useless

    This book looked like a good idea, but...NO. It has basic instructions (drawn-not photographed) in the front...and from there the instructions are written. It keeps sending you back to the diagrams in the front - what a pain!!!

    Bought the book from local craft store. it is difficult to find

    Bought the book from local craft store. it is difficult to find some of the beads you need to try to recreate the jewelry.  This is a book I might check out at my library but not buy it.
