Asked for an opinion about why Bohemia pockets this BOT category year after year, the store's staff speculated that it may be due to the boutique's "No Kokopelli Rule." In fact, there's no schlock of any kind in this unique outlet for Tucson's underground artisans. It's the perfect spot to gift hunt for the hipster who has everything, but it's particularly valued for its one-of-a-kind jewelry. Bohemia's stock typically includes consignment works from 20 to 30 jewelry artisans, many at unreasonably reasonable prices. The assortment is correspondingly varied, but even more so to the extent that these artisans' own fancies change over time. Especially captivating are the ornamented, crocheted wire pieces of Fran Manzo.
