Hokusai Wave Peace Bronze Necklace
An oceanic symbol of peace, the wave was often portrayed by the wonderful Japanese artist Hokusai. The movement of ocean waves also represents the Buddhist journey from illusion to enlightenment. And every surfer understands that a perfect wave takes us on a ride to nirvana.
Each pendant is made of Peace Bronze© and has an enamel color overlay. It weighs approximately 5 grams and is 1" in diameter. It hangs on an adjustable, waxed cotton cord that can vary from 16" - 30".
Comes in a lovely open box that tells the story of Peace Bronze©. Makes a great gift.
From War to Peace has patiently dug up the cabling connecting disarmed nuclear missile silos that was left in the soil of the American Midwest after the cold war. (Note the cabling is not radioactive and never has been.) The metals from the cabling were recycled into their pure forms, and the copper is now being used to create a wonderful alloy called Peace Bronze©. This creation is made from 95% copper, 4% silicon, and about 1% manganese---all of it recycled materials. Peace Bronze© is an entirely American-made product being used to create beautiful jewelry pieces that celebrate peace over war.
