My mom used to collect wishbones and line them up around the rim of a wine glass she kept in her room. A single mother of three, apparently she needed all the luck she could get. But over the years, I stopped seeing her wishbones as emblematic of fortunate happenstance and instead began associating them with the wisdom of a well-worn life.
When I decided to include a wishbone in the collection, I steered clear of the more zany approach (luck! yay!), and set out to design a wishbone that's seen a thing or two... The resulting Broken Wishbones have an imperfect texture that reflects the reality of things. The crack is a nod to either keeping it together or breaking apart, which some might argue are exactly the same thing.
Shown in vermeil (14K gold-dipped sterling silver).
