Joie de Vivre jewelry

In the Zen parable of Muddy Road, two monks ponder the difficulty of helping a young woman across a river in flood; by tradition, they are forbidden from contact, but one carries her across. The woman as cargo is the deviation to the rule - should a rule precede basic human thoughtfulness? The analogy woman:cargo::deviation:rule is faintly observed about the radiating lines of the spirodoodle in this 1" sterling silver pendant with protective glaze. Hanah Silk™ 5/8" hand-dyed ribbon is 34" in length for a variety of necklace lengths or even a wrap bracelet.

Length: necklace - 34"


  • sterling silver 1" bezel with glaze
  • hand-dyed silk 5/8" ribbon

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.

Both the silk ribbon and pendant are robust to loving hands, but as with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
