HISTORY of the PEACE SYMBOL
What we now call the Peace Symbol was originally designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtom as the logo of
the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament for its first major anti-nuclear march from London to Aldermaston.
Bertrand Russell was the president of the CND at the time and it was on that march, that the symbol
(five hundred lollipops on sticks) first appeared in public. The peace symbol crossed the Atlantic with Bayard Rustin,
a close associate of Martin Luther King, who took the symbol back to the U.S. for the Civil Rights marches and
later it appeared at anti-Vietnam War demonstrations. The symbol is now recognized around the world as a sign of peace.
Holtom explained that the symbol incorporates the semaphore letters "N"(uclear) and "D"(isarmament).
The Peace Symbol has deliberately never been copyrighted. No one has to pay or seek permission before they use it

HISTORY of the PEACE DOVE
The dove has been a symbol of peace and innocence for thousands of years in many different cultures.
In ancient Greek mythology it was a symbol of love and renewal of life. In ancient Japan a dove carrying a sword
symbolized the end of war. In the story of Noah and the Ark, when the rains that flooded the earth stopped,
Noah sent out various birds to see if they would bring back any sign of land to his boat.
One dove eventually returned carrying an olive branch. There was a tradition in Europe that if a dove flew around a
house where someone was dying then their soul would be at peace. And there are legends which say that the devil
can turn himself into any bird except for a dove. In Christian art, the dove was used to symbolize the Holy Ghost
and was often painted above Christ's head. But it was Pablo Picasso who made the dove a modern
symbol of peace when he used it on a poster for the World Peace Congress in 1949.
The poster inspired a new family of varied peace doves created by artists around the world.

*What is lead-free Pewter?
Pewter is primarily tin with other metals added for strength and hardness.
Lead was one of the added metals often used in old pewter.
Now that the dangers of lead are so well known, foundries in the US and Europe are using other alloys.
The pewter used in our jewelry contains 98% tin, with antimony, copper and silver and with trace amounts of various other metals.
Most of the jewelry parts are cast in Rhode Island. Some parts are imported from Greece.
Some findings (earwires, keyrings etc.) are from China and other countries.
Some items are nickel-plated, silver- plated or gold-plated. A few have an antiqued finish.
Most are a brightly polished, silver-colored Pewter.
All items are finished and packaged by me in California. I print the cards on my laser printer.
Peaceful Jewelry strives to practice healthy environmental and fair labor values.
