Peace

Lately, I have been experimenting with crocheting a peace sign. It hasn't gone terribly well. The patterns I found don't look quite right, and my tinkering hasn't yielded anything that looks like it should.

But my current obsession got me wondering. What have my fellow team members done with that stalwart of the '60s? It was a simple enough search.

First, I found a couple necklaces. Of course. The first is large and bold. The second small and subtle. For whatever your style happens to be.

Then there was this ring. You can show your hippie pride right there on your sleeve, er, rather, hand.

Another charm, but this one gives that flower child vibe.

And of course you need a messenger bag emblazoned with the peace sign to call out your peaceful leanings.

There were necklaces and a ring, so of course there should be bracelets as well.

Plus, I'm leaving out the earrings and some other cute finds. Be sure to type "Peace Sign" and "CCCOE Team" into the search box to see what I mean.  

I hope you're having a peaceful day.
