Want to know more about why wishbones are lucky? In 700BC Etruscans believed birds could tell the future. They would save the wishbone and hold it for good fortune.Later Romans picked up on this superstition but....chickens were scarce. They resorted to breaking the wishbone in half so there were enough lucky charms to go around! This tradition was passed to the British, who brought it to America where there were wild turkeys everywhere - and the lucky wishbone became common. Pretty great story isn't it! Just remember, we believe you make your own luck...but a gold and diamond good luck charm can also help :).
I am inspired by the American Gypsy coin jewelry of the 1900’s. Gypsy coin jewelry was functional, spiritual and symbolic — it was a way to transport wealth, show prosperity and express generosity to others. When I started researching this gorgeous antique coin jewelry, I realized that my wealth is not shown in money, cars or fancy homes…my wealth comes from life experiences both good and bad. Finding Love. Marriage. Losing people I have loved and finding peace as I remember their impact on my life. Divorce and finding a new confidence and freedom. Having children and every bit of joy that comes along with being surrounded by family. It is the perfect gift for yourself or for someone who needs a reminder of their milestone moment
