Joie de Vivre jewelry

The original idea was the swooping loops were a representation of angel wings. However, after reading Ted Chiang's story of angel visitations as events of great power and often destruction, I can't help but see atomic symbology too; not necessarily nuclear, but simply the power implied in atomic organization. On a separate note, I'm enjoying the flexibility from using longer cords with pendants that may be tied close to the neck in a choker style or left long.

Cost: $39.50 USD

If this item is going to be a gift, enter the gift recipient name in the text box when you add this item to your cart. If your entire order is going to one recipient (yourself or other), no other action is needed and you can specify the shipping address in PayPal checkout. However, if you would like multiple recipients in the same order, we can accommodate that! Before you check out, make sure to add a gift box to your cart for each gift recipient in your order. You will be charged $4.95 USD for each recipient other than yourself and you'll need to add the recipient name and address to the gift box text field. Also, each recipient can receive multiple items for the same $4.95 gift box fee; just continue to specify their name when adding items to your cart.

Length: necklace - 28"


  • sterling silver 1" pendant with glaze
  • sterling silver bail
  • silk 2mm cord

Care & cleaning: The pendant should be cleaned with a warm soapy cloth but should not be submerged in water to prevent leeching of the pendant design. The pendant can be removed from the cord and the silk cord may be washed and dried separately. Hand wash with warm water with mild soap and allow to dry. Avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners and use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

Although the necklace is robust to tugs and pulls, care should be taken with the silver bail on the pendant as it can bend or break. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

The silk cord can be tied or secured a number of ways for great versatility, and it can even be worn as a wrap bracelet.
