Joie de Vivre jewelry

Although we often use "flotsam & jetsam" to describe odds and ends, each has a specific maritime meaning: flotsam is material accidently entering the water, as through a shipwreck, and jetsam is material deliberately thrown overboard to lighten a vessel's load. They both are debris in the water, but the distinction can be important for valuables; flotsam may be claimed by the original owner but jetsam may be claimed by whoever finds it. In this necklace, an interesting jumble of glass and silver combine for a nice sea-themed collection of odds and ends. The sterling silver S-hook clasp and chain can be used to adjust the necklace length from 18"-21".

Length: necklace - 18"-21"


  • Hill Tribe silver pendants
  • London blue topaz faceted teardrops
  • Czech glass beads
  • Japanese glass seedbeads
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver open cable chain and hook & eye clasp
  • Power Pro moderate duty braided Spectra Fiber&trader; 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 silver.

The necklace is strong enough to withstand a toddler jumping all strands at once and pulling, but hard tugs and pulls on individual strands or the pendants may cause damage so it's recommended to keep this out of reach of young hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
