Joie de Vivre jewelry

A resourceful graduate finds multiple uses for items as a way to travel light and keep costs low. This glass bead necklace / bracelets doubles as a 16" colorful, strong, geometric necklace, a wrap bracelet (bracelets attached) or separate bracelets. The metallic blue-green Tila tile beads are from the same Japanese company that makes the lovely Delica seedbeads, with the same exacting standards for outstanding color and uniformity. The glass pearls are intermixed with sterling silver beads in the sterling silver link bracelet for contrasting texture. Both have the same sterling silver toggle clasp to make fastening one or both bracelets easy and consistent. A nice gift for a recent graduate!

Cost: $71.00 USD

Length: necklace - 16" or 2 8" bracelets


  • Japanese Tila glass tile beads
  • Hill Tribe silver nuggets
  • glass pearls
  • sterling silver beads
  • sterling silver toggle clasps
  • Soft Touch light duty nylon coated stainless steel cord (10 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 Japanese Tila beads are fairly strong but they are still glass that can be broken, so it's recommended to keep this out of reach. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This combination necklace / bracelets is highly versatile as a short, geometrically striking necklace worn short over tops with higher necklines or as two 8" bracelets that can be worn connected or separately.
