Brass Wishbone Earrings



A bold and unique piece of art jewellery, this piece is made using a process called lost wax casting, whereby a perfect replica of the natural object is made in wax. This wax copy is then used to create the final metal object. Each piece is then hand filed, finished and polished. These pieces are cast from chicken wishbone's salvaged from a Sunday roast dinner. I love ritual and ceremony, wear these for luck. I think the act of making a wish on the bone is one that most cherish from childhood.

These wishbone casts are made from brass casting metal and finished with sterling silver ear posts.
