Bohemia's Looking Glass - My New Etsy Shop

Bohemia's Looking Glass



I'm so excited to introduce you all to my new Etsy shop called 'Bohemia's Looking Glass'!  A selection of my new designs have been featured throughout this blog post and there's even a discount code at the end of the post :-)

 
* made from rescued book pages

The new shop is linked to my main shop by the continued use of the name 'Bohemia'!   Miss Bohemia which will remain as my main shop and will continue to be filled with jewellery and accessories full of bohemian glamour, darkly romantic designs, vintage inspirations and fantasy and fairy tales!   

 
* made from rescued book pages

While the second part of the new shop name, the 'Looking Glass' takes inspiration from 'Alice In Wonderland' & 'Through the Looking Glass' - books filled with magical, whimsical and sometimes non-nonsensical quotes :-)  The 'Looking Glass' was also chosen because most of the words and quotes created into the wonderful jewellery you will see, are placed within delightful vintage styled settings and sealed under glass cabochons;- hence you have to look through the glass to see them.


This shop will be filled with literary themed jewellery and accessories, along with some of my favourite quotes and words!   'Wuthering Heights' and 'Pride and Prejudice' are just two of the literary classics you will see appearing in Bohemia's Looking Glass.  Also, I'm sure it will be no surprise that 'Alice In Wonderland' will also be featured in this shop too! 

 
* made from rescued book pages

Some designs will be created using modern scripts, while others will incorporate text from vintage rescued and recycled books and other memorabilia.

   The jewellery will be available in silver plated, bronze and gold plated finishes. The range will include earrings, necklaces, rings, cuff links and accessories e.g. bookmarks and pocket mirrors.  

 

Future plans include hand stamped metal designs and I also plan to offer a service whereby personalised quotes, names or words that may have a special meaning to you can be requested and made into jewellery!

I hope you have enjoyed a glimpse into my new shop and latest designs and I hope you'll come to visit soon!   I have set up a facebook page for 'Bohemia's Looking Glass' for info on shop promos, discounts, new designs etc but will also add updates to my main 'Miss Bohemia' facebook page too.  

*Blog readers can enjoy a special 10% off all designs at Bohemia's Looking Glass until 31st August 2012 by adding the discount code  'BOOKLOVEAUG' when checking out.

Next Crafty Folk Blog Giveaway ~ Round Robin


Next Crafty Folk Blog Giveaway ~  Round Robin


 

As a member of the Crafty Folk Team on Etsy, I signed up to be part of the team round robin giveaway!  What originally began as an A4 sized glossy poster has now come alive through the work of the some talented Crafty Folk team members on Etsy.  



The original poster (which is one of my favourites) was created by the talented Dawn of Lilys Night Garden (also Team Leader of Crafty Folk).


 Dawn sent on the poster on it's way to Lu from Handmade in Keswick, who painted the beautiful gold locks, which also have stunning highlights of bronze and red.  


The poster was then sent to Hannah of Squintessential who added some extra sparkle and pizzazz to our lady's intricate body swirls and eyelashes! Hannah used added an array of pink and blue watercolour pencils and glitter.   


The lady was then on her way to Karen of Frou Frou Felt, who created a beautiful felted pink flower brooch before sending her on her way to me :-)


Instead of adding jewellery or accessories to the poster, I wanted to challenge myself and create something more art based.  I had originally planned to use ink pads and blending techniques to create a pink and blue background, but the shiny surface made me rethink that idea. I decided on watercolour paints and used a mix of pink and blue in varying shades, along with blending the colours together to create pinkish/blue highlights.  I added shimmery powders and a sprinkling of pink glitter to soften the background and add texture.  After using stamps to add vintage styled text, butterflies  and a swirl border,  my work was done. 

The picture directly above was taken using a flash which picks up the glitter and also the gold highlights of her hair.  The full picture, taken in natural daylight can be seen at the top of this blog post.

I hope you enjoyed our progress so far :-)

Our lady will be setting off for her next journey shortly.  Further updates on the progress of this poster for the giveaway will be posted on the Team Crafty Folk blog here.
