Joie de Vivre jewelry

This signature 21" slim necklace features Czech firepolished glass and delicate Japanese Miyuki glass seedbeads spaced with shining sterling silver beads. The "o g c" stamped sterling silver disc is for Of Good Cheer, this cheerful little website. Firepolish beads are glass beads made in the Czech Republic, famous for beadmaking, that have shaped and faceted when hot then heated with flame ("firepolished") to smooth the edges. The Japanese Miyuki company makes glass seedbeads known for their outstanding uniformity in size and variety in color and finishes. These two glass beads combine for a low-profile colorful accessory for casual wear. The clasp is a small Hill Tribe silver toggle. Hill Tribe silver refers to fine silver products from the Thai Karen Hill tribe that is handcrafted using traditional metalsmithing techniques.

Cost: $40.00 USD

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be frayed or severed through hard jerks or prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying cord. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal.

The materials and cord in this necklace are robust to most tugs and pulls, but care should be taken to prevent hard impacts which can damage the glass beads. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
