20 Boho Inspired Jewellery Designs
Festival season is here!
At Kernowcraft, we adore handmade boho inspired jewellery designs. It's all about expressing your creativity and creating something quirky and out of the ordinary that can be worn with confidence.
These boho jewellery designs are often seen at festivals and are especially popular in the summer. This is where we can expect big and bold designs, with colours and textures that really stand out. We love seeing statement gemstones used in these boho designs, gemstones such as turquoise, opal, agate and tiger's eye are all popular choices.
Today we're sharing with you jewellery designs created by a range of jewellers, all giving us those bohemian vibes that we just love.

We love these stacking rings, featuring New Lander turquoise and opal created by Nina Rambelli! Layering rings, chains and bracelets are a great way to incorporate different gemstones and charms into your design, while also adding textures with the use of cords and threads.
Crystals are so fun to experiment with, choose from different colours and shapes to create bold designs. You could create eye-catching earrings, a statement necklace or even create a unique headband.
We have a huge range of crystals, from pendants to nuggets for your jewellery designs.
Choose from a wide range of colours to suit you, whether you want the summery look with a bright pink or a more natural design with clear quartz.
Nothing beats completely natural and rustic treasures that you can transform into beautiful pieces of jewellery. Nature can create pretty amazing things like seashells, sand dollars, geodes to man-made pieces such as sea glass. This is also why gemstones are so popular, these natural gemstones connect us with the universe and nature - and how great that we can wear them!
You can also use charms which have natural themes to create simple and easy designs, we have a huge range of sterling silver charms that would be perfect to wear at festivals. Simply hang from earrings or create a necklace!

The great thing about wire-wrapping is that you can experiment with different designs. It could be that you're after something simple and neat, or after a more rustic design.
We love Pamela's ring, using copper to create layers, with the main focus of the wire-wrapped amber in the middle. She has also used a torch to create a patina on the copper, revealing the green colour and different shades of copper.
A multi-wrap and twist copper patina and single Baltic amber centre bead to marry all of the beautiful colours of copper together. For the middle wires I used heat (torch) to give it a variation of
colourfrom salmon pink to burnt orange/red; then I soaked the entire ring in nothing but rice wine vinegar and crushed sea salt (for the blue/green patina to take form). It is rather a slower process but very much worth it in the end. I wasn't aiming for anywhere specific or an all over green/blue patina, all I wanted it to do was form naturally as it would a penny on a city sidewalk. Which is where the ring got itsname: "City Sidewalks".

Moons and stars can always be spotted at festivals.
Crescent moons are especially popular and these can be seen as rings, necklaces and earrings - they make us think of the wonders of the universe!

Free form and unique gemstones always make an impact in boho jewellery designs. It's their natural beauty which makes them so popular. You can also use small gemstone cabochons to create stacking rings which also creates a statement design using natural gemstones and different colours.
These 'Turquoise' howlite cabochons have been dyed to give them these beautiful soft turquoise tones. They have such lovely unique patterns and markings. This pastel coloured gemstone is great for rings, pendants or earrings - as you can see with Monickka's designs.
Layering and stacking is a big thing in festivals and summer looks. Layering chains is very popular, while also using different pendants to add colour and texture.
Don't be afraid to mix up your jewellery too like wearing different earrings in each ear - why not have a hoop in one and a stud in the other? It's all about experimenting!
