Joie de Vivre jewelry

The origin of the phrase "cloud nine" in connotation with happiness is somewhat uncertain, but could be from the 1896 edition of the Cloud Atlas that defined ten types of clouds, with cloud nine being the highest (closest to heaven?) layer. The bracelet is 7" long with a sterling silver toggle clasp and the earrings are 2.5" with sterling silver earwires. The stones are peach calcite, a lovely lightweight carbonate mineral, and dark hematite. Artisans at Unicorne Beads make the stunning glass teardrops with deep, undulating color and great feel; it's these beads that are the source of the name because it's impossible to hold them without being a little happier.

Cost: $60.00 USD

  • Unicorne Beads lampwork glass
  • peach calcite square beads
  • hematite beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver earwires
  • sterling silver 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.

Peach calcite is a lovely soft shade of stone, but it is soft and relatively easy to crack and break. 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.
