Joie de Vivre jewelry

The phrase "I would be a party girl if it weren't for my existential angst" is one that my college roommate and I laughingly used to describe our conflicted approach to social engagements. Society acts like it's a crime to be thoughtful and quiet; it isn't. Culture says there's shame in being introverted; there isn't. If you have existential angst, you're not alone and life, that glorious gift, is open to you who has the imagination to appreciate it. The pendant is sterling silver with an adhesive glaze protecting the paper insert from wear and weather.

Cost: $46.00 USD

You will be charged $4.95 USD for each recipient other than yourself and you'll need to add the recipient name and address to the gift box text field. Also, each recipient can receive multiple items for the same $4.95 gift box fee; just continue to specify their name when adding items to your cart.

Care & cleaning: Clean the pendant with a damp washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The sterling silver chain and pendant are robust and should survive any treatment from young hands. As with all jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
