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. This piece is cast from a Chicken's wishbone salvaged from a Sunday roast dinner. I love ritual and ceremony and the act of making a wish on the bone is one that most cherish from childhood. Wear this piece as a talisman, for luck.
This wishbone cast is made from sterling silver and finished with a sterling silver belcher chain. The chain can either be ordered as polished sterling silver or oxidised silver. Oxidising is a process of ageing the chain that creates a blackened finish. The chain is then polished to give it a gunmetal sheen.
