Are you looking for a flighty mascot to represent your feelings of inner peace? Look no further than the gold bird bangle. Modeled after a mourning dove, the charm is so real, wings tucked under, each feather visible.
Three quarter sleeves, please, or tight fitting full sleeves. It’s much more fun to wear two, four, or six of these bird bracelets at once; the charms knock up against each other for a pleasant bell-like jangle. People will know when peace comes charging into the room.
The Peace Dove was the first in the Bird Haven collection. Designer Janet Mavec started sketching it the day after 9/11. Initially, she sold the dove in solid gold.
Pablo Picasso was fascinated with them. His lithograph of a dove became a famous symbol of peace in 1949 at the International Peace Congress in Paris. The painter famously said: “I stand for life against death; I stand for peace against war.” Don’t we all?
Picasso’s daughter was named Paloma, which is Spanish for “dove.”
Doves mate for life, and they always lay two eggs. Just two (with the rarest of exceptions).
An unsuspecting mourning dove in the Tri-State area was the model for this particular charm.
