I LOVE ...BluBoho Jewelry
Published Thursday, June 16, 2011 by jodi renee | E-mail this post
Is it any wonder WHY I fell in love with both Cheryl and Maggie AND their inspirational, story-telling finds?? The hearts and souls of these two girls make an impression just as magical as the jewelry. The only way to experience what I'm talking about? Make your way into the bountiful, blissful and beautiful ... BluBoho
Dreaming...It began when we started admiring each other's jewelry collections. Seeing new bits on each other's wrists, necks and ears every other day. A love that became a conversation around how we could continue collecting...we realized that our absolute favourite designers were the hardest to come by so we felt it was our duty to create a space for beautiful pieces, positive energy and creation. The signs kept coming that we needed to open a storefront - the "perfect" space (the one we wanted and the only one we dreamed of) right downtown Oakville became available just as we started looking. On March 1, 2001 BluBoho opened it's doors, filled with antiques, fresh flowers, love and incredible jewelry. Choosing designers from all around the world who create pieces with impact. They are like-minded, radical, free-spirited and creative. We put them all together because there is a synergy and beauty created in the store and on the body when you mix the amazing energy of these powerful people and their creations.
We want to be the place people come, to mark the occasions in their lives. Birthdays, babies, convocations, epiphanies, love, and sorrows...

What you wish to leave behind?...Joy!
What are your favourite pieces in the store right now?Well that's a tough question! We love every piece - that's why we had to open a store which we sometimes lovingly refer to as our 'walk-in jewelry closet'. If we had to pick - any and every Chan Luu wrap bracelet. They are 32" long, wrapping around the wrist about 5 times or once as a necklace. They come with silver, gold, rose gold, and every semi-precious stone you can imagine. We are loving the pearl right now - gorgeous for summer. Always loving the Good Charma sets of 6 - so you can pass one along on your journey of life, spreading love and good karma.
Where do you see yourself and the business in the future?We would love to open more stores so we can bring beautiful pieces, incredible energy and a sense of community to more area's. Toronto is on the radar, and we both love Ottawa, Halifax and the West coast.
The moral of their story?
Dreams come true. The universe is magical and WILL open doors for you that need to open
