Incorporating glass and a central tribal silver bead and some clay spindle whorls from the Dogon people of Mali.
The decorative patterns represent magical symbols. The whorls are often suspended near doorways for good luck and to protect against evil forces. They are now used as beads & talismans & traded for other commodities. Their role of spinning threads is now obsolete with the availability of modern textiles.
