Joie de Vivre jewelry

c u r a t o r 

Watching "Project Runway", one can be forgiven for thinking curators are mythical creatures capable of wearing impossible designs with ease, pose and sophistication while moving effortlessly and cleanly through the streets of the city. However, I have found curators to be wonderfully human, with love and excitement for the natural treasures or fine art in their care. It is for them that I combined smooth honey colored amber drops (representing millions of years of geological time) with pale calcite for lovely, easy to wear earrings. They also feature smaller scale sterling silver French ear hooks for maximum ease of use.

Cost: $29.00 USD

Length: earrings - 1 1/2"


  • amber cabochons set in sterling silver
  • calcite beads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver earwires

Care & cleaning: Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The earrings are strong enough to withstand tugs and pulls, and the owner is likely to yelp before the earrings will! As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
