Curiosities of the week – wishbones


A year ago I bought a wishbone bracelet from French Connection and I love it. It is now a bit tarnished but I still wear it a lot.

When I was younger one of my favourite things was to have the wishbone from the Sunday roast and break it with my brother. I would love to get the bigger piece so I could make my wish. It always made me sad if my parents had broken the wishbone while they were carving the roast.

This is why I love my bracelet so much.

I have noticed that over the last few months wishbone charms are popping up more and more. I found these three pieces of wishbone jewellery on, I even have the personalised silver lucky wishbone necklace by Wished For as well!

Like I said, I am currently loving wishbones.
