Joie de Vivre jewelry

Assembling the bracelet, the brushed gold discs reminded me of the golden collars associated with ancient Egyptians. The Egyptian city of Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great and enjoys a rich history of development and disaster, from its peak in the Ptolemaic period to its decline in the middle ages and eventual rebirth. This set includes a 7" bracelet and 2 1/2" earrings of 14kt gold-fill components, smooth marble and lampwork glass. Artisans at Unicorne Beads make the stunning glass teardrops with deep, undulating color and great feel.

Cost: $60.00 USD

Length: bracelet - 7", earrings - 2.5"


  • Unicorne Beads lampwork glass
  • marble square beads
  • lampwork glass round beads
  • brushed gold discs
  • 14kt gold-fill beads
  • 14kt gold-fill earwires
  • 14kt gold-fill toggle clasp
  • SoftFlex nylon-coated stainless steel beading cord (10 lb load test)

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be kinked or broken through hard jerks or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or kinking cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

Banded marble is relatively soft and easy to crack. For this reason, it's recommended to keep this set out of reach of curious hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This is a chunkier bracelet so it's worn best when not competing with the cuff of a long sleeve shirt. The earrings are moderate in weight.
