Once again, that would be exceptionally risky, when you consider the workmanship and their fragility. And there are no suspension holes. I think you have to start with asking the question 'how were they formed?' Then 'how were they carved'. In any case they also went to astonishing lengths to carve pieces that have hundreds of tiny holes clustered together, pieces which could never chime. And the ones with flat internal surfaces were carved so that reflected sunlight bouncing off the internal flat surface lights up the face of the externally carved figure. Isn't that enough to answer the question 'what was their function?' Magical appeasement of the gods?
