These hand hammered earrings are lightweight and 7/8" in diameter. They are made of alpaca metal (german silver). Alpaca is an alloy of copper,
bronze and nickel which forms a strong metal that will not tarnish or rust.
The anti-nuclear emblem or the peace sign was invented on the request
of Lord Bertrand Russell, head of the British Campaign for Nuclear
Disarmament (CDN) and sponsor of mass marches and sit-downs in London in 1958.
The symbol was quickly adopted in the US when a friend of Martin Luther King Jr.,
Bayard Rustin, began using it during civil rights marches. The power of this symbol
is emphasized by the fact that various far-right and fundamentalist American groups,
during the 1970s, seriously considered forbidding it.
Deliberately never copyrighted, the symbol is recognized as a symbol of freedom,
so it is free for all.
