Best Art/Artisan Jewelry


Webster's defines "Bohemian" as "a person living an unconventional life, usually in a colony with others." Bohemia, now settled in at a more voluminous Broadway Boulevard location, showcases the work of more than 200 Bohemians, nearly all local. Tucson native Tana Kelch and her congenial staff edit out the mundane, and carry only the funkiest, kitchiest, grooviest handmade objects, from jewelry to furniture. Fun rather than pretentious, Bohemia is better than a typical gallery—and since it's directly allied with the artisans who make up their inventory, Bohemia is better than a typical store. It's an "emporium!" Spend some time in Bohemia, and you'll be delighted at the creations you discover. Prices are humane, and your purchase is a wise investment in Tucson's creative economy.
