Joie de Vivre jewelry

Colors and shapes of bit and tack are found in this 18 1/2" necklace, from the deep chestnut round and rectangular beads to the shining silver spacers and stirrup shaped toggle clasp. Although the beads are not small, the lightness of the wood prevents the necklace from hanging heavy on the neck and enables it to rest in a wider circle in a lovely curving line. The design is symmetric, and it can be worn front-to-back, back-to-front, or even on the side. Paired with the love always sterling silver chain necklace, bit and tack imagery is more pronounced.

Cost: $61.00 USD

  • sterling silver beads

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 and components should be robust to tugs and pulls from young hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 18.5" necklace can be worn with higher to moderate necklines without collars; the articulation of the beads means the necklace will tend to lay wider than longer.
