About the Peace Sign:
The Peace sign was designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtam for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in Britain. It was adopted in the 1960's to protest the Vietnam War. In his own words; " I was in despair. Deep despair. I drew myself; the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goya's peasant before the firing squad. I formalized the drawing into a line and put a circle around it."
Ubuntu is a Bantu concept that means "No one is whole without the other." The African philosophy of Ubuntu, the embodiment of peace and harmony, inspired this jewelry collection which, through its combined symbols, represents oneness and unity of the human spirit. Ubuntu is the essence of being human.
Separately, each of these symbols has a deep meaning for a group of like-minded people. Individually, each of these symbols is rich in tradition and community, strengthening its members on an important and personal level. Worn together these symbols, with the peace sign, express the transformative power of Ubuntu.
Ubuntu is the knowledge that no one is whole without the other.
