This is pretty cool. Click on the pic above to get to this young lady’s webpage. She is from Liberia (one of my ELL students is from Liberia) and makes these very cool necklaces from spent shells from that country’s civil war. I think this is an ingenious idea and I love the necklaces too. Her name is Lovetta Conto. Check out http://www.strongheartfellowship.org/ to see a video of her with his Holiness the Dalai Lama. (Which made me cry.) Wonderful.
