STICK NEWS

Kia Ora, in Stick News today, Beethoven is dead.
You may never have the chance to meet him, but you will soon be able to buy a diamond made from his hair.

Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. He died in 1827.
This man is a celebrity hair collector.
He is giving some of Beethoven’s hair to a diamond company.
The company has been making diamonds out of dead people since 2002.
But they are now starting to make diamonds out of hair. They are planning to make three diamonds from 5 to 10 strands of Beethoven’s hair.


Beethoven’s hair diamonds will go on a world tour of museums and opera houses for 6 months and will then be sold at an auction.
And that was Stick News for Wednesday the 24th of May.
Kia Ora.
