From A CHARMING EXCHANGE by Kelly Snelling and Ruth Rae

From the author:

Crystal Neubauer created her talisman with a gorgeous wire basket centerpiece. She ingeniously made the small basket by weaving steel wire and suspending an old mother-of-pearl cross, taken from a rosary, inside it. Crystal’s talisman is based on verse 2 of Corinthians 4:7,“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

Crystal explained it like this:“In the Bible, the term ‘jars of clay’ represents our human frailties. The treasure inside the jars is God. I wanted to use the wire to represent the jar and to show that having God in my life is where my strength comes from. I then designed the top of the basket to resemble a crown of thorns.”

In the example stepped out here, Ruth added a button-stack charm that was made by Liz Smith in place of the rosary cross used in the original piece.
