The symbol of peace, the one created by British designer Gerald Holtom in the late fifties as a symbol for the campaign for nuclear disarmament and became an icon in the sixties as a symbol of anti militarism, it is taken to become a precious object and poster of the body the bearer.
An area of ​​a few centimeters in which it is well expressed the great concept of peace as a unit. Unity in form, the concept of symbol, in the creative act. On the surface precious unfolds not only the symbolic concept of peace, but it also suggests the way, perhaps the only one, to it, or at least come close to that ideal mentioned by Hesse.
The symbol stands on a silver background circular - which refers to the idea of ​​a united world - which, transcending the concept of gender as a shield contemporary, can be worn either as a button or as a brooch. A precious peace, then, from the almost disarming simplicity. That reminds us how precious above all simple and easy, as unfounded, peace. It needs no preciousness, quotes or special effects to be included, but only of a great common will to be done. The act of sewing, to joining the only possible because the symbols come to life - remember even the term symbol in its Greek etymology to put together, match - itself became synonymous with peace, creative act, desire for freedom .
Runner-cuff "Utopia" by Laura Lanaro, a jewel that expresses the freedom behind the concept of peace. Third place ex aequo to the Italian Lisa Contini, with the necklace "Fragments of union" and the French Simon Bichet with the bracelet "Prev [ar] ious Peace".
