Handmade bohemian bracelets: Hippie Karboojeh

20 Apr

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hippies, the nature-loving ones (not the self destructive ones), think of themselves as trees, or flower plants. They wear bracelets and accessories that connect them to wood, color and earth. These bracelets are dedicated to all the hippies of the world.

Handmade by Karboojeh, these bracelets are made to celebrate the bohemian spirit. Bohemian is far more expressive than classical trends, although the latter has its beauty spots.

I fluctuate between trends and tastes. I’m sometimes quite boho, but it doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate other styles, like French Romantic, or Shabby Chic. But my starting point, my original love is always boho.

And here’s more color…

With beautiful Italian beads…

Two blue hippie bracelets…

And more navy blue beads…

That’s the hippie post for today,

Have a great day,

Karboojeh

Handmade Jewelry Fun: Boho adventures from the Levant

22 Nov

UPDATE: Dear all, I am sorry for all the broken links on this post. I will update the photos as soon as possible, thanks!

 

 

Boho Jewelry Fun: Bracelets, rings and earrings from the Levant. This is my new collection of handmade jewelry – by Karboojeh Jewelry. I had great fun working on these, and more, to be revealed soon inshAllah.

Karboojeh Wood & Blue Boho Rings

The first piece is called the Karboojeh Color Power Boho Bracelet. The three wooden rings above are nicknamed, Karboojeh Wood & Blue Boho Rings. The three earrings below are just a sneak peak into a boho earrings collection I might reveal soon.

 

I made a couple of key-accessories, I am showing one here below. I’m calling it, Karboojeh Blue Levant Key Charm.

I’m particularly in love with seed beads (little glass beads that if stacked together can make a big impact): In this piece, turquoise beads go lovingly well with bronze. This (below) is called, Karboojeh Mixed Brass Levant Pendant Necklace.

And here is its sister, Karboojeh Mixed Levant Pendant Necklace.

That’s it for now. Take care… :)

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.

The amethyst bracelet in this post is the original work of Karboojeh Jewelry. Please give credit if you pin on Pinterest or repost. Thanks for visiting.

 

Packaging 101: Handmade jewelry getting ready for a British school bazaar

1 Nov

These guys are going on a trip to a school bazaar in the region.

And I’m so excited for them…

These are all Karboojeh Handmade Jewelry creations, and tags.

After much research & brainstorming, and many many trials, I came up with these ideas to brand my handmade jewelry. Economical, personalized & relatively quick to whip up.

I didn’t want the look to sound too “finished,” I wanted something handmade-ish, and reflective of the fact all jewelry items are handcrafted.

I didn’t use my official logo for this bazaar on tags… to “un-complicate” things. I just used straightforward business-card-like tags with the URL of this blog and my email address on them.

And this is the outcome. I’m happy!

I will post more details about the bazaar, and the lovely lady (my aunt) who came up with the idea of selling there, as soon as it starts – inshAllah.

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…
