Give someone the gift of LIFE this Valentine's Day and any day with the Akawelle necklace made from spent bullet casings. Sounds a bit strange to you? Trust us! This couldn€™t be a better symbol of love!The story starts in the refugee camps of Ghana where thousands of Liberians fled to during the civil war. Lovetta Conto was one of those refugees. Here she was approached by the Strongheart Fellowship Program and from that moment her dream of being a designer started looking more like a reality.Lovetta created the Akawelle necklace, meaning 'also known as LOVE'. It features two pendants, a leaf inscribed with the word LIFE, made from the bullet casings that litter the streets of Liberia, and a single bead which is the bottom of the bullet shell. This necklace represents the idea that there is the promise of life even through strife and hardship. Proceeds help to aid the Strongheart House where children from warring countries come for a chance at a better life.What could possibly be more romantic than giving someone a chance at a better life?Where to Buy - Strongheart FellowshipPrice - $100.00Who - Melimeli was the first to add the 'Akawelle Necklace' to the Hive.

One day he's great, the next he's not. Today you love him, tomorrow you don't. We get it - emotions can flip at the drop of a dime. And while it might be frustrating, it's comforting to know you don't have to decide how you feel about your latest beau immediately. Especially when you can keep your mind focused on this flashy little coin purse and all of the goodies you'll keep inside it! So whether your heart beats for the one you love or not, at least you'll have a shiny red heart to carry around with you ... no matter where life goes and who gets to spend time with you in it.
