About

The Bohemian Original is the batshit crazy brainchild of me: artist and designer Angela Flanagan.

When I was 8 years old I dressed like Wednesday Addams for a full year. Braids and all - girl was my idol (still is)! My adoration came from the fact that she was unapologetically weird and had such a bad ass IDGAF attitude - she was the best lesson in being your authentic self. Her example taught me not to give a damn about what anyone thought of me and my personal style.

It was from this mindset that I began creating my own clothing and jewellery throughout the ever judgemental high school years to the present. After school I went on to study Fashion Design at TAFE in Brisbane, Australia, and more recently Jewellery Design in Western Australia under legendary Margaret River Jeweller Steve Pease.
With a bad-ass attitude and fancy skills under my belt, I launched my online store in 2012 with the intention to create stupidly amazing, affordable high quality jewellery, while still promoting individuality.

My mission is to help take the focus away from 'fast fashion' and encourage people to be different, and invest in more ethical and sustainable wardrobe and accessory choices - starting with melting down all of my own unloved and unworn silver jewellery to be recreated into some f***ing fantastic new pieces!

The Bohemian Original is a small one woman show, run by me - Angela, from my home on the Surf Coast in Victoria. From the beginning of the creative process, to the finished product, I do 100% of the work, and I am extremely particular about the quality of the products I use so that I can produce gorgeous eco-friendly and ethically and sustainably made jewellery that is not only affordable but totally unique.
