Hello, I’m Brauna Rosen, a Brooklyn based jewelry designer and the creator of The Wishing House. Please allow me to share the story behind The Wishing House with you.
As a child I grew up believing in magic and always felt that I would be able to find fairies and magical beings if I just put enough time and effort into it. So I did. I put a huge amount of time searching for doorways into magical realms.
I started carving little houses one day partially because I love little houses and partially because I was thinking about my childhood and all the Vermont houses that I grew up with each which had its own kind of mysterious character.
But then I realized that it had another purpose.
When I was at jewelry shows people kept asking me “what do you do with this?” Another vivid memory from my childhood is that I always believed in wishes. So I said one of the things that you can do with it is make a wish and put it in a special place in your house and see if your wish comes true.
Since that time Wishing Houses have been given for all sorts of occasions. From holiday’s to graduations, to a nice housewarming gift for a friend or client, and sell in gift shops throughout the country.
