Jewelry Love: Boho Beads
I am excited to introduce you to a booming brand started by two young ladies that have style for miles and business savvy to boot.
I have hardly taken off my Winnie necklace and large horn since the summer.

Fashion and travel really inspire us and influences how I design particular pieces. But most of all my family really inspires me to do the best I can at all times and try my hardest at whatever I do.

Harris’s is the Skull + Tassel Necklace.

How has the your area influenced your work?
The support we receive from the boutiques, family and friends, and customers who shop local have really influenced our work. Boho Beads would not be where it is without our great support!

Balancing work and our personal life’s can be challenging, especially since we are both young and still in school. Work and school are very big priorities to the both of us, but we have realized how important it is to make time for ourselves and family. With the support of our friends and family, we make it work!
