Mamarua latest design is ‘PACIFIC PEACE’.
Mamarua’s Pacific Peace symbol uses the pacific woven motif – the three central strands of peace weave together to make a strong centre column whilst the outer circular edge is a multitude of tiny weaves signifying strength in unity.
The 'peace' symbol is synonymous with the spirit of Christmas so it is a happy coincidence that the 'pacific peace' is available as a NZ made, environmentally conscious and beautiful Christmas gift option.
Mamarua offers the Pacific Peace pendant in their signature ‘recycled resin and recycled rubber’ materials, still sourced from industrial scrap resin heading for the landfill.
The waste material gets screened, re-ground then coloured and given a new life as a NZ made taonga (treasure). The Pacific Peace design in Pewter is available in a larger 70mm size on a nickel free adjustable chain is also available. Pacific Peace will be something affordable to wear with the fabulous styles of summer 2011 / 2012. (RRP $34.50)
The internationally recognized symbol for peace was originally designed for the British nuclear disarmament movement by Gerald Holtom in 1958. The symbol is a combination of the semaphore signals for the letters "N" and "D," standing for "nuclear disarmament". These two signs superimposed forms the shape of the centre of the peace symbol. The original drawing by Gerald Holtom of the CND symbol is housed in the Peace Museum in Bradford, England.
