Joie de Vivre jewelry

A supernova is the ultimate expression of what happens when balance between powerful forces is lost. In a massive star, the pressure from the hot core counteracts gravity that draws gas inward. When the star cools and radiant pressure lessens, gravity acts to collapse the star. The shock of the collapse creates shock waves that blow apart the outer layers of the star, leaving a hot, luminous nebula and a small dense core. These 3" dangle earrings with spirodoodle designs show denser hypotrochoid cores with radiant curves sweeping outward. The designs on watercolor paper are protected with glaze on patina brass teardrops between thin sterling silver chains that end in a sparkling Swarovski crystal. Sterling silver earwires.

Cost: $30.00 USD

If this item is going to be a gift, enter the gift recipient name in the text box when you add this item to your cart. If your entire order is going to one recipient (yourself or other), no other action is needed and you can specify the shipping address in PayPal checkout. However, if you would like multiple recipients in the same order, we can accommodate that! Before you check out, make sure to add a gift box to your cart for each gift recipient in your order. 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.

Length: earrings - 3"


  • patina brass drops with watercolor paper and glaze
  • Swarovski crystal beads
  • sterling silver chain
  • sterling silver earwires

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

Hard tugging on the drops is likely to warp or break the thin chain so I recommend keeping these out of the reach of children. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
