A Beautiful Design with Amazing Benefits

As a fine art sculptor for the past 25 years. I am asking you to back my project and receive this amazingly beautiful design as an amulet for the highest good. These 3D printed HOLOS Amulets are beyond anything I've created so far. They are being offered as rewards and are a great gift for yourself and others. You can hear my story of how I created this design and what it means to me (farther below). This design has changed my life in a beautiful way, and it might just do that for you as well. Your support by backing this campaign will significantly help to reach our goals, and you will receive beautiful rewards for doing so.

I'm Asking For Your Support!

This campaign is a Call to Action. We are at critical crossroads in history. The challenges of our time call on each one of us to find balance and peace within ourselves. We are at risk every day by extreme inner and outer stressors that produce discomfort and aggression, which can provoke violence. HOLOS Amulets have a magical  transmuting power to help with personal fears, stress, and separation into inner balance, self-care, love, peace, and unity. The testimonials below share how HOLOS has this positive effect on those that have them.   

I’ll be using these Kickstarter funds to complete our first large production run, and fulfill all rewards. This campaign is for a limited time, so please select a reward or you can even make a contribution to our work without selecting one. Even a $1 pledge is welcomed and appreciated, to help us fund these goals as Every amount counts!

Our goals for HOLOS are:

  • For you to experience greater peace and connection in your life with HOLOS Amulet for your daily support. 
  • To bring HOLOS Amulets from our local market to global. 
  • To partner and support individuals and organizations working for Unity and Peace. 
  • To mentor and expanding our webinars and training programs. 
  • To mentor cities becoming International Cities of Peace. 
  • To create HOLOS public art sculptures. 

Select any of the rewards!

“Nature appears to rely on one core recurring pattern to evolve life at every scale – the torus. It is a donut shaped energy vortex that you can see everywhere from atoms to galaxies and beyond. The torus is nature’s way of creating and sustaining life and it can serve as a template for sustainability." Foster Gamble

HOLOS torus geometry represents our energetic field.

What makes the HOLOS Amulet a symbol for Love, Peace, & Unity?

HOLOS symbolizes our interconnectedness as One Humanity. Its design transcends language, religion, politics, and other man made divisions. In this way it communicates non-verbally the message of love, peace, and unity. 

Why do you call HOLOS an Amulet?

An Amulet is a piece of jewelry or sculpture designed to give protection. HOLOS in the ancient Greek language means whole, complete, safe and sound, and represents the Universe. The HOLOS design begins with the sacred geometry of the torus (a "life saver"). Its 9 spirals express an infinite flow of energy, rejuvenation, and protection.

Testimonials:

We continually receive positive comments about the influence of HOLOS Amulets on the lives of those who have been a part of our initial offering. The beauty and rejuvenation of the HOLOS Amulet is confirmed by physicists, spiritualists, healers, psychics, jewelers, and most everyone who sees this design.

"The HOLOS design is a new sacred geometry. When I look at the design, I see a “labyrinth to our soul”. You (Brian) have cleared yourself enough to bring forward this symbol for peace. Congratulations." Karen S

"The HOLOS design is complex simplicity at its finest, much like the organization of our universe. Thanks much, Brian. Sincerely and with respect," Fred A

"My HOLOS amulet arrived today and it is Perfect! I have seen many other torus pendants/amulets before finding yours, but yours was definitely the most beautiful. I thank you for everything. All the best to you," Tommy H

"I love the HOLOS – a simply elegant design, infinite continuity, and leading edge creation (3D printing). The fact that it comes in a choice of finishes is even more impressive. It will win, just keep it simple and let it flow. In so many ways it sells itself!" Michael N

"I received the HOLOS today and it is so beautiful. I put it on and find comfort in how it brings healing energies into my very being, like a vortex portal. Thank you for touching my life in such a meaningful way. Peace," Adrian G

"I wanted to write to tell you personally how my pendant seems to be having a VERY positive impact on my life. After I had been wearing my pendant for about a month, I began to notice that I felt not as weighted down with worry and anxiety. I seem to be thinking more about peace in the world in general than worrying so much about peace in my own life. Thank you so much for creating such a lovely piece of art for us all to enjoy and find positive results in our own lives. With warm regards," Susie B

"I love this beautiful symbol for world peace and unity. I wear mine all the time, it goes with almost all of my other necklaces. It just feels good!" Anatta C.

"I have seen this symbol for One Humanity as a pendant. They are nothing short of stunning artistry, and an amazing and powerful symbol for oneness in itself!" Marilyn S.

"I love, love, love my pendant. Thank you so much for making it." Dorothy D.

"Really really love my gold plated HOLOS and am so grateful it is mine. It is my favorite thing to wear, especially when I am getting dressed up for anything fancy." Amy Lynn S

"I am so happy to have this new silver HOLOS! So grateful for your offerings of beauty and spirit. Feeling blessed by your work, this beautiful symbol of health and wholeness." Deborah B

"I recently received my HOLOS pendant as a gift from a good friend. I didn’t know what to expect but I can tell you what did happen when I put it around my neck, I immediately felt an energy that I did not have before. All my interactions with people were so much easier and comfortable. I was in the middle of a photo shoot at the time and all of a sudden everything seemed much more alive and with each model I felt a connection to them I wasn’t feeling before I wore the HOLOS pendant. From that day forward many things about my daily well-being, my feeling of energy and overall outlook was so much better. I was a restless sleeper. I use a Fit Bit activity tracker that monitors my sleep and it would show several periods of restlessness before the HOLOS pendant. Now I have been sleeping soundly for the entire night. Finally today at lunch with friends, someone said to me ”You look so good with that pendant.” I feel very much at one with my world. I believe it is because of the HOLOS pendant and I wear it everyday and I love it!" David B

"I am grateful beyond words. Would you happen to have another HOLOS in antique bronze like the one I just bought? I just gifted the last one to someone who could use it." Mark H

"I went to Buenos Ares wearing your HOLOS. So many people stopped me and asked where to get it?" Cher S-B

How are HOLOS Amulets made?

HOLOS Amulets can only be produced using 3D printing machines building the design one layer at a time. They are made two ways: metal printed with stainless steel powder, or printed in casting wax, then jewelry casting with precious metals.  

1. 3D Metal Printed HOLOS Amulets are produced in three finishes-Stainless Bronze, Antique Bronze, and 24K Gold Plating. 

2. 3D Cast Precious Metal HOLOS Amulets are produced in Polished Brass, Copper, Sterling Silver, and 14K Gold.

HOLOS precious metal Amulets are cast using a complex 6-step process. 

  • First, HOLOS is 3D printed in wax using a high-resolution printer. 
  • It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it.
  • Once the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace, and the remaining plaster becomes the mold. 
  • Molten brass, copper, sterling silver, or 14K gold is poured into this mold. 
  • The plaster is broken away and carefully cleaned, revealing your HOLOS Amulet. 
  • It goes through extensive hand polishing to give it a smooth glossy finish.  

HOLOS Amulets are 3D metal printed using this complex method.

First HOLOS Prototypes 

In 2013, these first prototype Amulets were produced. They were heavy to wear, so we did a complete redesign, hollowing the model and removing the valleys, revealing the infinite energy pattern with no beginning or end. We've made prototypes improving the design. HOLOS Amulets are now ready. So please select the HOLOS Amulet that is right for you.

Our thanks for your support and being part of the HOLOS campaign for love, peace, and unity.

Our Thanks to You! Lisa and Brian Berman
Our Thanks to You! Lisa and Brian Berman

We are in great gratitude for all the support we have received in making this Kickstarter project possible. Special thanks go out to the team at Chapeau for the beautiful opening video, to Ojai Images for many of the great photos, to Starchild Interactive for Brian's video history. 

We have partnered with these organizations to spread peace all around the world. Your support of this HOLOS campaign will also provide support for these organizations.

Risks and challenges

The challenges of our time call on us to act in unity for peace. We are, directly or indirectly, at risk every day from increasing violence. HOLOS Amulets are a positive step towards transmuting fear and separation into empowerment, unity and love. My partner Lisa and I have dedicated our lives and our professions, addressing these challenges with inspiration and positivity.

We have found the right companies to create HOLOS Amulets using 3D metal printing and casting. We have produced the rewards in small production runs and we continued to refine and improve the design. We know from all the positive feedback that we have received that you will love your HOLOS and being a part of this campaign for love, peace, and unity.

The first challenge is getting sufficient financial backing to meet the costs required to fabricate HOLOS in a large production run. We will continually work to get the very best production from the manufacturers of HOLOS Amulets.

Thank you for helping share this campaign far and wide, expanding a global community in support of peace.

Please note that as we are relying on manufacturers to 3D print HOLOS rewards there might be unexpected delays outside of our control. If so, we will communicate with you and tell you when you can expect delivery of your rewards. Lisa and I live by our word with integrity. When we set out to do something, we complete it on time or ahead of time. This is how we will respect all backer rewards. Thank you in advance for your support. Peace in all directions.
