Trident - Find Your Power
I've got so much to say about this Trident style. They connect to my spirit on several different layers. As a United States Naval Academy Grad, these reference our school newspaper -The Trident. They reference Zeus and his Trident of Power. They reference our nation's seafaring military, the Navy, the forward deployed safety net of our American virtues. Finally, and most importantly to me, this Trident style references the upwelling power of women; women that first deployed as Officer's of the Line, my year group at USNA. Women that are finding their voices, their stride, their POWER.
Wishbone - Make Your Own Luck
I'm the youngest of four siblings. As a child, my mother would roast chickens and preserve the Wishbone on the windowsill to dry. When it was ready, it's my recollection that we were able to wrestle for the chance to grab a hold, pull it apart and possibly have our wish granted. It was happy childhood chaos, but I was the scrawniest of kids and rarely secured a spot in the wishbone pull. No matter-- I learned to make my own luck in life and this Woven Wishbone style serves to remind you to do the same.

Vermeil is an overlay process (and a legit legal standard! Go figure!) with gold over silver. In this case, each piece is hand forged by me in Fine Silver before the 24k adheres. You're actually getting double fine metals here with 24k (nearly pure Gold) over Fine Silver (nearly pure Silver). Additionally, there is no nickel in Original Sin Jewelry's Vermeil. Ever. I'm using thicker than the legal standard for vermeil and guarantee the piece for life.
