"Many years ago on a trip to Tucson I purchased ancient stones from a dealer selling antiquities.
Having by-passed a career as an archeologist I fell in the love with the mysterious smooth, round orbs.
Learning that that these were used as a gift to send ones beloved to the afterlife, I was moved by the sentiment and intrigued at how each one would have been shaped for this intention.
I held onto these precious tokens for years before figuring out how they could be worn and appreciated.
Creating a cage would preserve the token’s integrity while allowing the wearer to view it."
