Joie de Vivre jewelry

e x p l a n a t i o n  

For those whose inner nature is often at odds with society at large, this 20" necklace of wood beads and leather link is a colorful statement of operating, perhaps, outside easygoing channels. The beads are handknotted with a bright satin cord, and the turquoise leather link has a watercolor design with "I would be a party girl is not for my existential angst" as a message of wistful explanation. Silver-plated brass hook and eye clasp.

Cost: $32.00 USD

This longer 20" necklace works well with most necklines and drapes best over thinner materials.
