Joie de Vivre jewelry

When skies are soft and grey and the soul is low, head for an art museum with wide windows to cast gentle light on calm portraits, sweet landscapes, thought provoking angles and luminous marble. Bold red coral and mellow wood combine with pleasing tonal shades and complementary shapes. Should anyone ask, the sterling silver metalwork at the center of this 18 1/2" necklace is an expression of the unexpected twists of this modern life or perhaps an abstract heartbeat.

Cost: $66.00 USD

Length: necklace - 18 1/2"


  • dyed coral beads
  • noble wood beads
  • dyed freshwater pearls
  • sterling silver beads and wire
  • sterling silver hook & eye clasp
  • Soft Flex moderate duty nylon coated stainless steel 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 central sterling silver wire feature can be bent or distorted with determined tugging so it's recommended to keep this out of young hands. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 18.5" necklace works well with higher necklines like boatnecks or crewnecks and moderate scoop necks or v-necks. It is a bit wide to wear with collared shirts but it may work.
