Came across this on the web and thought I’d share.
I’ve been looking for a piece of “perma-jewelry” (daily wear) for myself, in honour of my son. In my search, I happened upon this site: Akawelle Jewelry, aka – also known as, wel’le – life.
Made from spent shell-casings from bullets fired during the Liberian civil war – the symbolism of the piece moved me just as much as the artist’s story. I will let the site speak for itself.
I think this is the piece I will choose. For many reasons I will not share, it is very appropriate.
