Around 10 years ago, someone gave me a Murano ring. It was green, also broken, when I opened the package. I am still unsure of where or how it broke (in transit? while package was being opened?). When I saw it, the worry began and never really stopped. Broken glass. Bad luck. The works. It took a while to shake off the feeling that it was my fault (did I squeeze the package too hard? was I too excited?). If it was my fault, it was easier to think of how it could have gone better. Or so I believe.
