Joie de Vivre jewelry

c a r g o  

In Muddy Road two monks are traveling and one helps a young woman cross a river (contact with women considered unwise and dangerous). They continue traveling until the other monk asks why he did it, to which the first says, "I left the girl there. Are you still carrying her?". The analogy woman:river::burden:journey represents the carried woman as both a physical and mental burden across the river that is our journey. What cargo are you still carrying? Perhaps, like the first monk, it's time to let go. A doubled sterling silver rolo chain wraps through a turquoise leather link and is secured with a small but strong sterling silver magnetic clasp. (Note: the clasp distributor cautions pacemaker wearers against these magnetic clasps.)

Cost: $40.00 USD

Length: necklace - 16"


  • leather link
  • watercolor paper with glaze
  • sterling silver magnetic clasp and cable chain

Care & cleaning: Clean with warm soapy washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The necklace can withstand tugs and pulls, but care should be taken with the leather link; it can be damaged with determined pulling. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 16" necklace is a nice accent for a variety of open necklines, and the magnetic clasp makes it a snap (literally!) to wear.
