Boho tribal jewellery - a festival fave
Tribal jewellery is beloved by bohemian fashionistas as their everyday jewellery of choice, but for most of us it becomes a compulsory must-have item at festival time. Tribal jewellery is one of the many styles of boho jewellery - it generally has a Native American heritage, and is distinctly different from other popular boho jewellery styles such as gypsy, urban, hippie and vintage boho.
Of all boho jewellery styles, tribal jewellery is a favourite at festivals, and the Native American influence is very clear in this type of festival jewellery - leather, turquoise, silver and feathers are a hallmark of the look. In this tribal necklace, the Buffalo Girl Spirit Dreamer, gorgeous turquoise nuggets complement tribal silver charms. The bracelet also features dainty beads of turquoise, and will soon become a favourite piece to wear with everything.
The choice of festival jewellery is huge, and cheaper factory manufactured tribal jewellery is sold in the thousands. But for the true bohemian, the girl who looks for something different and wants to stand out in the crowd, the right piece is much trickier to find.
As Elle Magazine advises, the trick is to 'avoid being a Coechella fashion cliche. If your in constant danger of tripping over your fringe, you're doing it all wrong."
Wise words - but how to follow the advise and not become a Coechella clone? The trick is not to do what everyone else is doing - or wearing the same look or festival jewellery that everyone is wearing.
Here's where Her Lovely Bones jewellery comes to the fore. Specialising in artisan, high-quality boho jewellery using precious metals and rare turquoise, this is tribal jewellery for the discerning It-Girl who expects her photo to go viral on social media. Our pieces of festival jewellery are either one-off or limited edition, although Boho Bazaar features a great range of affordable mass-produced festival jewellery add-ons to complement your primary handmade artisan pieces.

Unique festival jewellery that keeps it simple
Hey, we know the feeling. Sometimes you just want to cruise along and keep things simple and minimal, but you still don't want to look like a thousand others at the festival - you know, that dreaded Coechella cringe when the first five girls you run across are wearing exactly the same cross-over gold-plated Indian wrap chain as you are, courtesy of every department store in town :(
The solution is a simple, minimal handcrafted tribal piece similar to the boho jewellery below. Though minimal, they are definitely tribal jewellery in the use of the handcrafted materials and components such as feathers and arrowheads.
This gorgeous jade arrowhead necklace is a simple festival jewellery alternative when you don't want to drape yourself with a ton of boho jewellery. The intricate pattern of the woven macrame necklace adds a subtle tribal jewellery feel to this classy but definitely festival-approved necklace.
In this festival necklace a stunning azure feather replaces the jade arrowhead featured in the photo above.
