Our products are wholly designed and manufactured in Greece. They weigh, on average, 110 g. Their total length is 48 cm. The metallic part has an 8 x 8 cm diameter, 1 mm thickness and is made of high-quality bronze, which has undergone special processing to keep it from oxidizing and darkening (nickel plating). As they are handmade, our ceramic beads vary slightly in terms of their round spherical shape, having a diameter that ranges from 16 to 22 mm.
The figure of a dove bearing an olive branch in its beak has been a symbol of peace and prosperity since ancient times. The olive tree itself plays a very significant role in the mythology and religion of different civilizations. For instance, in the symbolism of Christianity appears a dove carrying the bough of an olive tree, which Noah considers to be a sign that life has returned to earth after the great flood (the “Deluge”).
