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.
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…
'2 Teals' boho bracelet - by Karboojeh Handmade Jewelry
Jewelry and accessories have always been a woman’s best friend. This is where she expresses her sense of beauty. Sometimes she expresses her lack of confidence or pride by wearing expensive jewelry to show off her status and socio-economic power. That’s not my niche.
Karboojeh handmade boho bracelet - The Rustica
The best jewelry, in my modest opinion, is boho! It connects women to their essence as earth-loving, peace-making creatures.
These bracelets are by “Karboojeh Jewelry,” made with great attention to the influence of color over our moods. Turquoise & blue beads are very calming, soothing, and beautiful, but they do not send a msg of wealth or status. Coupled with beads of natural wood, these bracelets are simply down-to-earth boho.

Ottoman-inspired handmade earrings - by Karboojeh Jewelry
This is an original handmade charmed bracelet by Karboojeh Jewelry. I made it for someone who wants to wear a full-of-memories bracelet, since it carries little cute butterflies, a bear, leaves, coins, pearls, and different shaped & colored beads.
To make one, you need:
~ Round-nose pliers
~ Metal findings
~ Glass, ceramic, metallic beads, & faux pearls
~ Eye-pin findings (to attach the charms)
~ Jump ring (optional)
- Start by deciding on the color combination of the bracelet. I chose white and blue, with occasional silver to sit neatly on a bronze-black chain.
- Try to add similar bead shapes from different materials. In this case I used a silver-metallic butterfly, and a blue glass one, to speak to each other, so to speak.
- Add things that mean something to you. If you like them, odds are someone else will do too. We’re all human, and sometimes our tastes cross paths, more often than we think.
