Terrariums as Curio Displays

Terraria by Kim Holleman

Artist Kim Holleman will host a terrarium-making workshop as part of the Atlas Obscura Speakers series at the Observatory Room in Brooklyn, NYC in late August.  The pitch for the workshop mentions creating "living" terrariums with plants but places a square focus on the opportunity of designing a focal point around a cherished miniature object:
In this workshop you will make a unique living terrarium in a glass container which doubles as a curio display for your tiny treasures! A variety of glass, plants, pebbles and tools will be provided. Students are encouraged to bring a handful of tiny special objects and stories about how you found them!

Terrariums do make great curio displays for items like beach glass, chandelier crystals or small figurines.  What unusual small items have you included in your terraria?
