Peace Symbol Bronze Earrings
The Peace Symbol was created in 1958 for the Committee for Nuclear Disarmament in Great Britain. It has become the universal symbol of peace, embraced and understood in every culture. It is a combination of the semaphores for the letters "N" and "D", standing for "Nuclear Disarmament." This jewelry is the first time that the Peace Symbol of nuclear disarmament is actually created from disarmed and recycled nuclear weapons. Original designed by Gerald Holtom. Each earring measures 3/4" width and weighs approximately 1.5 grams. Hypoallergenic gold filled french hooks. 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.
