Explanation:
While it is possible to have a light in the shape of a bell or a bell with a light in it, it is more probable to me that this is a charm in the form lightweight bell that the person is wearing.

[In this example, see how "light bell" is used in the same manner as "lightweight bell". The trumpets' bells do not have a light in them.]

All of the Mayan pieces that I do are custom designed from the Mayan cosmology that is cast from a persons astrological chart. The pieces are most often made using a combination of metals, sterling silver, fine silver, 18k and 24k. The gemstones that are used in the pieces are selected for the qualities that are attributed to them.
Some of the necklace talismans are double sided and inscribed on the inside with the essential qualities that are particular to the glyphs in the piece. ***A hidden clapper is suspended from the bail - which creates a **light bell** sound,*** hence becoming a sound activated Mayan talisman.

neutral  Emma Paulay: But are you allowed to wear jewellery in prison?

  -> That's a good question, and one that I considered. On a restricted basis, religious jewelry is permitted in some prisons. See posted references for prayer bell and other religious bells that I posted.
