In Spain, some 150,000 people travel to Santiago de Compostela every year from all over the world to find inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding. Many carry with them a scallop shell of the Way of St James, a Tau cross, or some other symbol of personal significance like the St James Cross. This necklace (hand-crafted in A Coruña, Galicia, northern Spain) has similar significance.

Info about the Way of St James
The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. It is generally regarded as a journey of the body, mind and spirit. Modern pilgrims choose to do the Camino for personal, spiritual and/or religious reasons - or simply to take time out from their busy, modern lives. For many, the walk is to find inspiration - improving their outlook on life, bringing them into closer contact with nature and expanding their cultural horizons through contact with other pilgrims. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
This unique guardian angel necklace with its tiny scallop shell and Tau cross, really IS a piece of jewellery with meaning, and is the perfect present to wish someone a 'buen camino' / safe journey . Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
