Solid 9ct gold bone pendant necklace, a handmade hammered and textured gold wishbone pendant on a gold chain, modern contemporary round necklace.

* FREE POSTAGE TO THE UK* All measurements are approximate. Every pair of earrings and cufflinks are individually made so are not identical or a duplicate but are complimentary partners. Every piece is made by hand and so will feature ‘imperfections’ that are a sign they have been hand crafted and truly unique. All of my jewellery makes an ideal gift and is lovingly wrapped in a box or gift bag ready for the recipient. The gift wrapping in the photo is representative of how your jewellery will be presented. I only ever purchase small amounts of packing material so time to time it may change according to what is available. I’m not an advocate of unnecessary packaging so try to use recyclable materials as much as possible. 

In the world of jewellery, symbols hold a unique power to convey messages, embody traditions, and evoke sentiments. Among the array of symbols that grace necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, the wishbone stands out as a charming and whimsical motif. The wishbone, often associated with luck and the fulfilment of desires, has found its way into the hearts of jewellery enthusiasts, becoming a popular choice for those seeking a touch of magic and optimism in their adornments.

The wishbone's journey into the realm of symbolism can be traced back to ancient times. Its roots lie in cultural traditions and superstitions, particularly those surrounding the common fowl. In various cultures, the wishbone, or furcula, of a bird—most notably that of a turkey or chicken—was believed to possess magical properties. The practice of breaking the wishbone in two, with each person making a wish and the one holding the larger piece believed to have their wish granted, became a widespread and enduring custom.

The wishbone's incorporation into jewellery design stems from its association with the fulfilment of wishes and good luck. Crafted in various metals, adorned with gemstones, or fashioned into delicate charms, the wishbone symbol has become a tangible representation of hope and optimism. Wearers often choose wishbone jewellery as a personal talisman, believing in the symbol's ability to bring good fortune and actualize their heartfelt desires.
One of the endearing qualities of the wishbone symbol is its simplicity, making it an ideal motif for a range of jewellery styles. Whether elegantly incorporated into a pendant, subtly engraved on a ring, or dangling playfully from a bracelet, the wishbone's versatile design allows it to complement diverse tastes and preferences. This adaptability has contributed to its enduring popularity, appealing to both those who favour understated elegance and those with a penchant for whimsical accessories.

Beyond its association with luck, the wishbone symbol also carries a deeper meaning for many individuals. It is often seen as a reminder of the power of positive thinking and the importance of maintaining hope in the face of challenges. In this way, wishbone jewellery becomes more than just a fashion statement; it becomes a personal emblem of resilience and belief in the possibility of dreams coming true.

The wishbone's timeless charm is further enhanced by its ability to transcend generational and cultural boundaries. Whether passed down as a family heirloom or chosen as a contemporary accessory, the wishbone symbol connects wearers to a shared human experience—one that spans centuries and cultures. It becomes a link between the past and the present, carrying with it the echoes of age-old traditions and the enduring human desire for hope and fulfilment.

In conclusion, the wishbone symbol's allure in jewellery is deeply rooted in its rich history, cultural significance, and its power to evoke positive emotions. As we navigate the complexities of life, the wishbone serves as a whimsical companion, a beacon of hope, and a tangible reminder that wishes, like the delicate bones from which the symbol originates, have the potential to come true. As wishbone jewellery graces the necks and wrists of individuals around the world, it continues to weave stories of optimism, luck, and the enduring magic of heartfelt desires.

When it comes to choosing the perfect piece of jewellery, it’s great to consider something that is not only beautiful but also sustainable. One option is by choosing jewellery that has been made from solid recycled gold or sterling silver. Not only does recycled gold and sterling silver reduce the environmental impact of mining, but it also helps to preserve our natural resources, it is just as high quality as newly mined gold and silver.

Recycled gold and sterling silver is an environmentally friendly and socially responsible alternative to mined gold and silver. I purchase my gold and sterling silver from a company that has made the gold or sterling silver into sheet and wire by melting down and purifying existing gold and sterling silver jewellery, coins, and other items. This process conserves natural resources and reduces the negative impacts of gold and silver mining, such as deforestation, habitat destruction, and pollution.

Recycled gold and sterling silver is an excellent choice for those looking to make a more sustainable and socially responsible purchase. It conserves natural resources, has a smaller carbon footprint, supports fair labour practices and is cost-effective. By opting to buy solid gold and sterling silver jewellery made from recycled gold and sterling silver you are making a positive impact on the environment and society.

When choosing your new piece of solid gold or sterling silver jewellery made by hand by me you’ll know that you're making a responsible choice.

Buying handmade jewellery directly from a designer-maker offers many benefits that you won't find in mass-produced jewellery. Firstly, it is unique. Each piece is crafted by me, meaning that no two pieces are exactly alike. This makes my handmade jewellery a special and one-of-a-kind choice that is sure to stand out.

Buying handmade jewellery directly from me is often more personal. I am happy to work with customers to create a custom piece that is tailored to their preferences, which is a great way to create a truly special piece of jewellery. This can also add a sentimental value to the piece, knowing that it is specially crafted for you.

Buying handmade jewellery directly from designer-makers also supports small business and independent artisans. I make my jewellery from home and rely on my craft as a source of income. By purchasing my pieces, you are not only getting a beautiful and unique item, but you are also helping to support a small business and the local economy.

Choosing handmade solid gold and sterling silver jewellery from a jewellery designer-maker such as myself offers many benefits, such as its unique design, high-quality and durability, supporting small businesses and independent artisans, and a more personal experience. By choosing handmade jewellery from a designer-maker, you can rest assured that you are making a responsible and ethical choice that will last for years to come.
