Heiwa Peace Bronze Necklace
Heiwa is the Japanese character meaning "peace," making the casting of this pendant from Peace Bronze© an exceptionally good fit. The symbol is surrounded by bamboo stalks against a red enamel background.
The pendant weighs approximately 4 grams and is 7/8 inches in diameter. Hangs on 18" black colored natural fiber cord.
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.
