Joie de Vivre jewelry

t u l i p 

The bold jewel bright colors and smooth lines of the glass beads in this versatile 30" necklace are like the beloved tulip. The glass beads are a combination of green and deep-ruby red Czech pressed glass rounds, iridescent lampwork glass rounds and teardrops, and stunning furnace glass (or cane glass) beads drawn and cut from long thin tubes. There are a number of suppliers for furnace glass, but my favorite was Fire Designs, a studio out of Washington. It's hard to find their beads now, which makes designs such as this one so special. This necklace can be worn long or doubled as a choker.

Cost: $62.00 USD

Length: necklace - 30"


  • Fire Designs furnace glass beads
  • Czech pressed glass rounds
  • lampwork glass
  • sterling silver spacers
  • sterling silver toggle clasp
  • Synthetic braided fiber beading thread (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 thread. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

Although the thread is quite strong, the sterling silver bead tips are softer and can be bent or broken with sustained, hard tugging or pulling. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

The necklace can be worn long (30" rope) or short (doubled as 15" choker) so it pairs nicely with a variety of styles.
