Joie de Vivre jewelry

d i r e c t i o n  

The bronze charm compass rose is a good reminder to keep a sense of direction, especially in challenging days and years after a life event like graduation. Freshwater pearls, 14kt gold-fill beads and 224t gold-lined glass seedbeads make for a warm, golden mix of good fortune and well-wishes. The larger, irregularly shaped pearl is called a biwa pearl, which now refers to pearls of larger, irregular shape but Biwa pearls used to refer to the large quantities of freshwater pearls farmed in Lake Biwa in Japan before water pollution shifted pearl production elsewhere in Japan and China. The strand with the biwa pearl is slightly longer than the other strand, and the 7" length refers to the shorter strand length. Both clasp with a 14kt gold-fill lobster clasp.

Cost: $64.00 USD

Length: bracelet - 7"


  • biwa freshwater pearl
  • freshwater pearls
  • 14kt gold-fill beads
  • Japanese glass seedbeads
  • bronze charm
  • 14kt gold-fill lobster clasp
  • Soft Flex moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel 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 metal.

The bronze charm may be pulled off the bracelet with determined tugging and these can be a choke hazard, so it's recommended to keep this out of reach. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
