About Of Good Cheer
Of Good Cheer logo

OF GOOD CHEER is an independently owned small business operating from Tucson, Arizona. The purpose of every card and jewelry item offered on this site is to celebrate everyday life, from the slant of early morning light making a flower beautiful to the challenge of getting everyone to work and school on time. We at Of Good Cheer are dedicated to providing striking, quality items that are a joy to give to others (and oneself!). Unless noted otherwise, all items are handcrafted by jewelry designers and artists with distinctive style and attention to detail. Our philosophy is that art is for everyone, anytime, and we like to think the time and care invested in our items make them a pleasure to wear and share. We hope you enjoy shopping with us and remember to wear & share art you love!

Joie de Vivre jewelry with a story

Beaded jewelry has a long history; from ancient times to present, jewelry has served to celebrate and commerate life events in beautiful ways. We like to think there's a story behind every piece of jewelry, and our product descriptions and wearing suggestions - oddball as they might be at times - serve to share our vision of that story. Where you take that story is up to you!

Joie de Vivre icon Joie de Vivre jewelry is our product line dedicated to bridge jewelry made from real stones, some semi-precious and others not-as-precious, and quality metals. Bridge jewelry is as the name sounds: it bridges the gap between costume jewelry made of synthetic materials generally at reduced cost and fine jewelry made from precious gemstones and metals. We make heavy use of sterling silver and 14kt gold-fill in our designs; solid copper and brass are also used with an occassional plated metal. We want our customers to have the tangible enjoyment of wearing real stones. Swarovski crystals have long been a favorite of ours for adding terrific color and dazzle to designs. The updated site will include dozens of new styles and creative approaches towards including jewelry in your everyday life.

Of Good Cheer off kilter cards

We like mail. We like to send unique notes; we like to receive them. Email, texting, Facebook and even eCards are faster ways to communicate, but not as tangible - as magical - as a piece of mail. Think of how a card or note from a loved one or acquaintenance transforms the day. A card in the mail is a small gift of yourself that makes a day special. We're fans of mail.

Our product lines formed out of cards we wished we could find. This seems odd because card selections are bountiful! Indeed, at times it seems there are too many cards from which to choose. Why add more? The answer is that the cards didn't feel personal, born of actual people's observations and experiences. Yes, most are beautiful and some quite profound. But a card can't hide its origins; commercial cards produced for the mass market may be witty, sympathetic, loving, cheerful, charming - but rarely do you have a sense of the person who made it. We view cards like we view jewelry; these are bits of art made to use and share.

The updated site will still feature card designs, but buying options will be restricted to sampler packs or subscriptions. (The reality is that most people simply download the images!)

Vals Pals Icon

Val's Pals cards is our homage to the stick figure, literally! The designs are charming in their simplicity and easy wit. The aim of a Val's Pals card is to reflect on the essence of a moment with cheeky fun and dry humor. Nothing's to be taken too seriously with a Val's Pals character. Cards for major holidays and life events as well as for the everyday can be found on the Val's Pals pages. And yes: the designs evolve from personal experience!

Had matter Line Icon

Had Matter Line cards are a mix of Victorian and other 19th century images with modern twists. Subject matter varies, but designs are grouped into birthday cards, beautiful scenic blank cards, blank cards with Victorian images and irony, and Christmas cards.

River Stone Designs icon

River Stone Designs are the most serious cards of the bunch; many are blank and rely on the feelings evoked from the photographs and collages themselves to communicate the mood and message of the card. This product line includes photogrpahs of beautiful places, images inspiring moments of reflection, fun images of the everday and holiday greetings.
