Amulets for Introverts

Amulets For Introverts are single egg-shaped objects each made by machine, hand, and nature – all designed to give shy people social super powers. Some of them even include smaller objects trapped inside: freshwater pearls, seeds and even the artist’s own baby teeth.
Given a set P := {p1, …, pn} of sites, a Voronoi Tessellation is a subdivision of the space into n cells, one for each site in P, with the property that a point q lies in the cell corresponding to a site pi iff d(pi, q) < d(pj, q) for i distinct from j. The segments in a Voronoi Tessellation correspond to all points in the plane equidistant to the two nearest sites.
