Driftwood and {bronze} jewelry

When I was little, I found a piece of beaver chewed driftwood.  I thought it looked an awful lot like Piglet, Winnie-the-Pooh's side kick (one of my favourite stories).

When I told my grandfather that the stick looked like Piglet and that I wanted him to put agates on it for Piglet's eyes, he had no idea who Piglet was!  My 6 year old self was astonished - how could he not know?!!!!

So, we traded - he gave (driftwood) Piglet eyes and my mom and I read him the Winnie-the-Pooh stories.  

Now, I am matching driftwood with my bronze jewelry - it helps keep the memories close.  What do you have that keeps your memories close?
