Featured Shop ~ Miss Bohemia
Miss Bohemia is run by Jen from the UK. It is filled with literary, modern and fairytale clothing, accessories and jewelry.

Jane Austen Glass Orb Pendant

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 artistic creations, which often fuse everything from dark fairytales to literary classics."

Wuthering Heights Earrings

Why did you choose to make/sell what you do?
"I have always loved to express myself through being creative. My shop ‘Miss Bohemia’ allows me to see my dreams and designs come to life through jewellery, accessories and clothing and it’s such a rewarding process!"

Personalized Mr and Mrs Mugs

What inspires the designs/creations you make?
"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 and my choices vary from fairytales to literary classics, to thrillers and I love books that are able to fuse these elements together. You will see this spill over into my work in the form of romantic, fairytale and literary designs fused with darker elements like the Phantom of the Opera Jewellery and Wuthering Heights."

Sherlock Holmes Mug

What new designs/creations would you like to add to your shop in the future?
"More screen printed clothing designs with more size and colour options and stationery."

Personalized Monogram Wallet

I asked each shop to share one of their favorite Vacation Photos with us.
"I chose the photos because I got to visit the FIESA sand sculpture festival and it was amazing! They had a mythological theme which included giant sand sculptures of Elves, the Valkyrie, the Mermaids and Greek Gods. Another reason why I remember it was because the map to visit the sculptures showed it as a straight line and nearby so we set off on foot and ended up walking for 2 hours in the hot sun before we got there – it was worth it though"

  1. Thanks for the lovely feature Kris :-) Good luck everyone!

  2. Those sand sculptures are amazing! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love the sand sculptures! I need to visit Portugal :)

  4. Great sand sculptures! Is Portagul the Spanish spelling of Portugal? I've seen that in other languages, like Danish. (Denmark being spelled without a K and stuff.) Curious now.

  5. The sand sculptures were amazing :-) I was surprised how big they were when I got there.

    J Lenni Dorner - no that's my bad spelling on the photos - thanks for pointing it out :-) Hopefully Kris will change them over for me once I update them!

  6. Wow, those sand sculptures! Love the Mugs! :)
