Your body and life must have a pulse in order of You to call yourself alive. Blood must circulate and nerves respond. But if You lack joy, desire, fear, longing and hunger, the body becomes just anatomy. Sometimes it's like the bunch of nerve threads what is visible, and everything seems really fragile. Your blood rush through kilometres of veins and You don't think clearly. And the next moment it can calm down completely. You become numb and almost withered, although the anatomy and organs work effortlessly as usual.
The necklaces show blood as a source of power, color and shape.
