Este es un Elefante?

I bought these African wedding beads at a shop on the square in Sonoma. Today I put them on a silver chain and made a necklace for myself.

All day I've been working on a Spanish project involving an elephant. All day I've been exclaiming, "Este es un elefante!" And then a few seconds later: "Este es un elefante!" Tom is fortunate enough to work in the room right next to mine, so he gets to learn Spanish, too.

When he stepped out of his office I showed him the beads.
Tom: Is that a safety pin?
Me: Yes!
Tom: Este es elegante!
