Lucky silver wishbone, succulent and turquoise necklace
This one of a kind design features a pinned bail wishbone cast into sterling silver from a mold of the real thing. I added a cast sterling silver succulent from a real succulent plant and pinned a turquoise filled chain to both ends of the wishbone. Hang on 30 inches of textured lightly oxidized sterling silver chain. Perfect to wear long and layered.
The furcula or wishbone is a forked bone found in birds and some dinosaurs, and is formed by the fusion of the two clavicles. In birds, its primary function is in the strengthening of the thoracic skeleton to withstand the rigors of flight.
A wishboneis a symbol of good luck. It also is a wish maker. If two people tug on the ends of a wishbone and each makes a wish, the person holding the bigger piece when the wishbone breaks will have their wish granted.
