Featured Shop - Miss Bohemia/Bohemia's Looking Glass
Miss Bohemia and Bohemia's Looking Glass are run by Jen from the UK. Miss Bohemia is filled with bohemian glamour, darkly romantic pieces, vintage inspirations and fairytales! Bohemia's Looking Glass is filled with literary themed jewelry.

Day Of The Dead Necklace  $21.92

How did you choose your shop name?
"Miss Bohemia originated from the word ‘bohemian’. I was drawn to this word as it is a term taken to mean 'free of rules' and unconventional! This seemed perfect for both me and my creations, which are often seen as an eclectic mix of styles which fuses everything from dark fairytales to Victorian and vintage inspired creations."

Alice In Wonderland Necklace  $9.39

Why did you choose to make/sell what you do?
"Stemming back from childhood I have always been creative through arts and crafts. A few years ago I was made redundant and took a short break from the regular 9 to 5 and I started making jewellery which I really loved. After becoming a little obsessed with creating new designs and after receiving increasing requests from friends and family I decided to set up a shop online and see where it led to. I now have my own website and a series of Etsy shops too. My designs have now expanded from jewellery to accessories including keepsake boxes and fabric based designs."

There's No Place Like Home Mug  $12.52

What inspires the designs/creations you make?
"For me, being creative is both my dream, my passion and something that flows from within! I tend to draw inspiration from everywhere and believe that beauty and magic can be captured from almost everything. I like to combine a mix of modern and vintage elements in my work and this probably developed from my love of art, costumes and jewellery from different eras. I also love reading fairytales and thrillers, especially books (and films) that merge the two together. This often influences my designs i.e. Alice In Wonderland Collection (which includes gothic pieces), Phantom of the Opera Jewellery as well as Victorian styled shabby chic and more gothic creations."

I Love You To The Moon And Back Earrings  $10.18

What new designs/creations would you like to add to your shop in the future?
"As someone with a great love of books and nostalgia, a dream of mine was to incorporate novels and vintage papers e.g. music sheets into some of my designs. This is now becoming reality as I recently opened a new Etsy shop called Bohemia’s Looking Glass. I recycle the pages from damaged books into jewellery settings and I plan on using the book papers to create paper roses (and other creations) which will be made into jewellery and altered artwork."

"I would also like to add more shabby chic fabric based designs e.g. Victorian styled tattered cuffs and fabric roses etc and have a mix of romantic dreamy fabric designs and gothic Victorian styles too."

Mr. Darcy Mug  $13

You'll have a chance to win a "Love is Forever" Jewellery and Accessories Prize Pack from Miss Bohemia. Enter now on the main Giveaway Post.

Since we have a Murder Mystery theme going I had to ask the shops to share their favorite murder mystery/thriller/suspense movies.
"I'm a big fan of old detective and murder mysteries in both book and film form and love thrillers/suspense movies too. One of my favourites thrillers (sometimes called a horror too) is 'The Innocents' which is set in a gothic mansion and tells the tale of a governor and 2 children. What I love about this film is that it doesn't heavily rely on the usual imagery to scare you but creates the perfect scary atmosphere, suspense and psychological fear through well directed music and lighting - it's so creepy!"

Come back tomorrow for the next featured shop and the next scavenger hunt clue. Oh, and don't forget to enter the big giveaway. You could walk away with some fabulous to-die-for goods from all 14 of our shops!
