When The Earth Supplies Us With Remarkable Gems

Isn’t it remarkable how the earth supplies our every need as human beings? The same is true for many of the things that decorate our bodies and lift our confidence. This fact comes to mind when I think of Arts Boheme, a line of eclectic jewelry that draws from the beauty of natural stones. The line was founded by Cheryl Domenichelli, a science educator turned jewelry designer from San Francisco.  I caught up with her to find out more about how her travels influence the beauty of the line and how her brand is designed to empower people.

 Brass crafted in Africa using the lost wax technique. The focal bead is a brass heart whose texture is echoed in the subsequent brass. Hand cast recycled glass beads in swirls of orange and blue. Crystals of citrine and Swarovski. Complimented by the Ghana Gold bracelet.

"The jewelry of Arts Boheme is eclectic and  draws on the beauty of the stones used to create the jewelry.  I love the art found in nature. Stones and minerals are exceptional in their varied colors, patterns and formations.  I also appreciate natural wood, seed, sea shell and pearls.  All are created through natural processes.  I also have a love of hand blown glass know as lamp-work and glass that has been recycled or re-purposed into beads. You will see in my designs these components enhanced by fine Swarovski or Czech crystals.  I love it when components come together to create a piece of jewelry that are not typically seen together. An example would be African recycled glass and brass components coupled with Swarovski crystal and gemstones. In my line of jewelry you will see refined elegance, rustic elegance and cultural influences." - Cheryl Domenichelli
