Not for everyone I know, but this is a bracelet I just made with a silver reproduction of a piece from an Ancient Olmec Shaman burial which was disturbed by a hurricane and is now held respectfully in a private collection. All the stones I've used are pre-columbian ancient (Olmec and Mezcala culture) jade and greenstones (also all found in Mexico) and I've used only green stones as that was the colour of all the stone carvings and pieces found in the grave ~ I understand that the shamans revered green stones as representing a close connection to the earth, they've always been my favourite stone colour too Very Happy . I hope I've made him feel at home I love you

WOW! He's awesome! His facial expression is wonderfully meditative Smile (btw soo cool how you make these beauties with such old materials...would you ever use another toggle bracelet to connect and wear as a short necklace?)
