JOY IS COMING brooch
JOY IS COMING brooch
Joy is coming!
Recently a lovely customer sent me this poem by Kim Addonizio and asked if I could make a Joy is Coming necklace so she could give it to her friend. The poem has meant a lot to both of them, and it's a kind of mantra they say to each other 'listen I love you, joy is coming'.
I hadn't seen the poem before (although I should have, it's been a sensation since she wrote it in 2016). I read it and cried at my kitchen table, it threw me for a couple days.
I think these words resonate so much with recent weeks and the feeling that perhaps in all this awfulness a change is coming. I know some of you have been wanting rainbows so this comes in two different colourways - rainbow and sunshower (because it reminds me of the sun shining through the clouds just after the rain has stopped)
And like This too shall pass, the words glow in the dark to be with you in the dark times.
It comes as both a necklace or brooch with the words 'listen I love you' either on the brooch fastener or dangling from the clasp of the necklace.
The cloud measures 5 by 2.5cm. (2 by 1 in.) and each part is cut from 3 mm. acrylic.
£2 from every JOY IS COMING item will go to Woman’s Trust. Domestic abuse has increased during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Shipping & Returns
I aim to send out all orders within three working days of receiving them. Some designs are made to order so can't be sent next day. Please allow two days from ordering to posting even if you choose Tracked 24 or Special Delivery.
All orders are shipped by Royal Mail Second Class unless otherwise stated.
I get proof of postage and cannot be held responsible for parcels that go missing.
If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase you can return it to Wear and Resist in its original box and packaging within a month of purchase for a full refund or exchange. For reasons of hygiene I am afraid I cannot refund earrings.
Acrylic can break if dropped or snap under pressure. Please store your jewellery in its box and keep away from lotions and sprays as moisture can discolour metal chains.
I’ve recently bought the Midnight drop earrings for my wife, and she loves them. Even when I asked if they could be made and delivered in time for a party that next weekend, customer service was excellent and they arrived in plenty of time.
I highly recommend Resist. Cool designs and service with a very friendly smile.
The colour is brilliant with the mirror effect, very happy with my purchase.
Not a piece that I’ll be able to wear for work, but I absolutely adore this necklace and received so many compliments and comments about it. I’ve shared a photo in a Widow’s group that I’m a member of where so many agree totally with the sentiment. Thank you so much xx
Gorgeous! Bought for a friend and she adores them. Great size and finish. Thank you 😊
Fast delivery, good communication, and a great statement piece of jewellery. Quirky and quality!
2023 is the year to bring back the wearing of the brooch. Positive statements to be worn appropriately. Treading cautiously I have only worn the ‘damn’ brooch but it’s early days ….
I was looking forward to wearing the ‘raging’ necklace bought in the blue colour. It is comfort and lightweight to wear and surprisingly subtle given the statement. An alternative and enjoyable wear.
I love this mirror and it was EXACTLY what I wanted to send to my beautiful, brave cousin for her birthday. All arrived safely on time. Thank you Sarah! xx
Decided to share my love of Sarah’s amazing pieces with friends for Christmas gifts - they all loved them. My only mistake was not buying a tiny pair for myself…
Great fun. Thanks.
I have had lots of positive comments when I wear these earrings. They catch the light and are very eye catching. I love them!
Loved these. Light weight and delicate. In fact as soon as I showed my daughter they were lost to me! Beautifully crafted.
Bought these as a gift for a friend and she loves them, exactly as described and look great.
Perfect for me as I manage a library full of super books. Lovely quality and love the font and colour - I chose purple but already eyeing the red one too !! Nicely packaged with care instructions 💜
This amazing necklace for my sister in laws birthday was greatly received. Perfect message (‘raging’) which was beautifully packaged and arrived in time for her birthday despite Christmas and the postal strikes. Very happy with it and she loved it! Many thanks x
