Editorial Reviews

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.

This jewelry-making book is truly an inspiration. All the jewelry projects use fun stringing materials in new and exciting ways! The jewelry designs are hip, stylish and fashion-forward.It also teaches great techniques on how to incorporate leather, ribbon and cords into beaded jewelry designs. This book is packed with so many great ideas and information. All the jewelry designs in the book are easy to achieve and the materials used are readily available. The thing that makes this book stand out from the rest is the unique way the jewelry designs are put together. You will be inspired to be creative!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!
