In my jewelry box are a number of pieces handed down generation from generation. My husband has stored relics from his father and his father's father. Each of these unique pieces contain energy from the person who once owned them. Some of the pieces were purchased new, others were found in second hand stores. All of them contain impressions from the people who have come in contact with them before.
