DIY Originals: Bohemian blue feather necklace

10 Dec

Feather jewelry is all the rage right now. I love boho jewelry, and so I decided to make a few feathery giveaways for 5 cute teenage girls who volunteered to help out at the Italian Charity event mentioned in a previous post.

I made this Karboojeh Blue Boho Feather Pendant Necklace in honor of my bohemian adolescence… that’s when I was more free to express my boho self. I doubt many people in the country I am in right now appreciate feather jewelry. Bohemian doesn’t seem to strike a chord with a lot of people who would rather wear either tacky plastic jewelry, or diamonds. No bohos in between. Alas!

Handmade DIY Jewelry: Karboojeh Blue Boho Feather Pendant Necklace

DIY Recipe: A few ingredients for a boho necklace

The feather necklaces in the 3 pictures above are pretty DIY, I used the following materials to make them:

  • feathers
  • craft wire (to wrap the top of the feathers together before inserting them into the bead cap)
  • findings: Eye-pin. I wrapped the craft wire around the feathers several times, then wrapped and wrapped around an eye-pin which went through the top of the bead cap. There, I used the round-nose pliers to create a loop, which I then attached to another eye-pin that had several beads on it.
  • metallic elongated bead cap
  • beads (wooden, ceramic, glass)
  • chain
  • pliers (round nose, and flat-nose)
  • findings: small jump-ring to connect the feather pendant to the chain.

Inspiration: Anthropologie & the feather

Here is an example of a white-feathered necklace that I found at my favorite online-shop, Anthropologie. And of course, I had to pin it on my jewelry-inspiration box on Pinterest.

Pretty neat, right? It’s called the Feather Flight Necklace. I love the rosary-like beads attached to the feathery pendant; they look very nice with the white feathers. The beads are an assortment of ebony, white, turquoise & aquamarine gemstones. And the general feel of the necklace is quite bohemian.

When amethyst reminds us of true love: A Karboojeh bracelet’s monologue

20 Nov

Love is the real bond that brings us together. Beads that sit next to each other on a bracelet must love each other (regardless of their differences), or else the bracelet will not feel good on your wrist. Love is the utmost power that can guide us to our real inner Truth.

People act like they love each other, they give each other a lot of compliments, but their hearts are infested with jealousy from each other, and a doze of envy. They do not work hard to clean their hearts from these illnesses, and are content and happy with the false act pf love. I have seen sisters feelings jealous and competitive among each other, and many around them hailing that as “normal.” People on magazines are encouraged to have this and that “envy,” or o feel jealous from celebrities. Jealousy & envy are darkness that enters the heart and pollutes it.

Refuse to be polluted and start cleaning up!

Real love is pure. It has not one shred of illness, mistrust, or inner secretive annoying thoughts and attacks against the ones we claim to love.

Love needs to be tested and re-tsted, and rested, to be purified.

You say you love God, for example, but when He tests you, you go nuts? That’s not love. Love is firm, and when you notice it is swaying, it is weak, you keep at it until you make your love rooted, strong, so no wind can take it away.

Love that comes from hollow sweet talk is just talk. Real love comes from within, has nothing to do with common interest, or benefit, or appearances.

Originals: Handmade Crystal Jewelry ~ Welcoming winter

27 Oct

Karboojeh Handmade Crystal Combo Bracelet

I’m still in my summer mode to an extent. The colors I’m using for making earrings & bracelets are pretty much ‘somewhat vibrant.’ But I’m also making fall/winter-suitable jewelry, and I guess I’m moving slowly, but reluctantly, into winter mode.

ϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪϪ

I love winter, marshmallows and hot chocolate, but I also love color, a lot of it. Not the bright, nor the pastel, but the deep rich colors, especially those that remind us of the sea.

But sometimes, good old plain classical has its place in one’s heart – and jewelry box. The earrings above are made to fit every fall/winter outfit. The earrings below are made of genuine onyx gemstone beads, that came all the way from Italy.

This year I am discovering the fabulous-ness of crystal jewelry. Before journeying into jewelry-making as a replacement for my old career, I was never a crystal-wearing girl. But I’m changing… and so is the weather! I wish you all a happy winter…

Originals: My boho jewelry ~ Handmade Earrings

9 Sep

Today, I decided to ‘reveal’ a few of my recently handmade jewelry items ~ by Karboojeh Jewelry.

The one above is a favorite of mine, a lovely turquoise ceramic bead sits in the center, flanked by metallic findings and faux pearls.

This one (above) has a clay dark-turquoise  bead in the center, with seed beads and metallic findings completeing the full picture.

This pair of earrings (above) is a bit playful. It has fresh water pearls, seed beads, and crystal beads coming together to create a soft boho look.

The focal bead (above) is made from glass. I got it from Italy. I love how a couple of childish0looking beads can instantly be transformed into something else, depending on the findings you use with it.

These earrings have a dark green ceramic bead as focal piece. It  also has bone beads the color of cream, faux pearls, ceramic white beads, and metallic findings.

I will be sharing more of my work in future posts. For now, I wish you a pleasant day.

Ciao

Originals: Karboojeh ‘sort-of’ dream catcher necklace

13 Aug

I didn’t really mean to make a dream catcher necklace…

Neither did I have the whole catcher thing in my mind. I was just following my boho voice when I made this. I made several others, which I no longer have, I gave them away as a present.
