Inspiration for Cover of the Novel

Some people may be curious about the cover of the novel.  It partially displays a bracelet with coins, a cameo, and an onyx marble.
The bracelet, actually, is my mother’s, handed down from my grandmother, and I took the picture for the cover.
It was a very popular jewelry piece in Cuba that has now become an heirloom of my family.  I have another similar one, but it is full of trinkets about my own life–like medals for achievements, or religious medals, or small trinkets given to me as gifts.  My sister has another.  As a young woman, I wore it constantly, so I used that concept for the novel and for the plot development.  Where better to place a coin found in the middle of nowhere that will shake the foundations of Gabriela’s (my character) life?
