Joie de Vivre jewelry

Unlike the intricate interplay of color and texture in impressionist and expressionist art through smaller, individual brush strokes, modern art features more prominent lines and geometric forms in what appears to be a more limited color palette. (This isn't always the case, despite appearances.) The milky whites, pale peach and cool grays in this necklace are strictly from nature, but the color combination can be found throughout modern art and decor for a cool, comfortable feeling of classic style. The short 15 1/2" length means this necklace can double as a wrap bracelet as well for maximum versatility. This makes a great gift for an art lover or anyone with an eye on Mondrian.

Cost: $28.00 USD

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.

Length: necklace - 15 1/2"


  • moonstone beads
  • smoky quartz beads
  • sterling silver spacers
  • sterling silver toggle clasp
  • Power Pro moderate duty braided Spectra Fiber™ cord (30 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.

The beading cord is strong and should be robust to toddler tugs and pulls, but care should be taken because the sterling silver beadtips securing the cord to the clasp can be bent or broken with sustained pulling. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 15.5" necklace works well with higher necklines like crew necks or shallow V-necks. It can also be doubled as a wrap bracelet (what I call a "necklet", see the necklets page for more examples).
