We love what we do! Every gem, crystal, and piece of brass or silver is a wonderful, beautiful challenge! We don't do "perfect". If we were to sum up what Bohemian Blu jewelry is, it would be "perfectly imperfect"! No "one" gemstone is alike... not every piece of brass or silver is hammered the exact same way. It is what makes handmade art unique. Many pieces can be made in multiples... however no two will be exact.
Every Bohemian Blu piece is truly made with love and care. Our hand hammered pieces are very lightweight and comfortable; made to be simple, modern and timeless.
Have fun browsing our website and don't forget to keep checking back! We continually add new pieces!
