The JUMP FOR JOY handmade necklace has a joyous look to it! The exquisite pendant was artisan designed and handmade by Beth Hemmila of Hint Jewelry from fine silver (a silver that is more pure than the normal sterling silver). The pendant features a rabbit jumping for joy and flowers - a celebration of spring. The pendant was given a patina and then polished to bring out the lovely detail. The back of the pendant has a hammered look to it from the design on the front. The back also features Beth’s “Hint” stamp with a leaf. The pendant was carefully wire wrapped on sterling wire to connect to the main body of the necklace. A 6 mm “khaki” Swarovski crystal was added to provide spring sparkle.
The main body of the necklace features an asymmetrical design created with two types and colors of freshwater pearls. Glowing white pearls in an oblong shape make up most of the necklace. Each of the pearls are separated by 2 mm sterling silver beads. To add even more of a spring feel to the necklace design, light grass green coin pearls with a lustrous sheen are scattered through the necklace. Sterling daisy spacers and sparkling 4 mm “khaki” Swarovski crystals flank each side of the coin pearls. Photos #2 and #3 above show the entire necklace so you can see the distribution of the pearls. Even though the necklace design is asymmetrical, it is very balanced.
A sterling silver toggle clasp with a twisted design gives the JUMP FOR JOY necklace an elegant finish.

Rabbits represent the renewal of spring and fertility and have historically been associated with the Easter celebration and its symbolism of sacrifice, redemption, and resurrection. Pearls are used to spread loving vibrations; they promote sincerity, truth and loyalty. Even though man made, crystal (glass) carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
The JUMP WITH JOY necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
