Joie de Vivre jewelry

The name is suggested by the two large oval red beads among an orderly arrangement of wood and copper beads. The average ovary is about 1"-2" in length and about an inch or so in width, which is about the size of the red beads. The wooden beads are on the larger side but lightweight, and the use of thin rondelles helps the necklace flex and drape well. Copper beads, of all the base metals, suggest warmth and health, and the idea is to exude strength and vitality while celebrating these fantastic organs that give life (and often discomfort). Thanks ovaries!

Cost: $54.00 USD

Length: necklace - 24"

Materials:

  • dyed wood beads
  • copper beads
  • copper toggle clasp
  • Soft Flex moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel cord (30 lb. load)

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 copper.

The wood beads and beading cord are robust to hard pulls and tugs from young hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
