Chains that bind are often symbolic and at the same time they are real. These chains I wear connects me to my ancestors who guide and protect me. They also keep away evil spirits. My people have always loved and worn these things, and so do I. Knowing who I am helps keep me focused and aware of my sense of purpose in life. I think of them not as chains but as connecting links I can climb to a higher view of the world.

The hanger on the back makes it easy to hang on a building tree or inside your home or office wherever she gives you inspiration.
Each concrete face is hand sculpted by Barbara Liss in the Montana Bliss Artworks studio.
