Saint James is said to be the protector of travellers
These sterling-silver earrings feature the Cross of St James (Cruz de Santiago) - with a tiny Scallop Shell handcrafted onto the face. The components originate in Galicia, northern Spain.
Earrings measure 35mm in length including the hanging loop.
With roots in Spain's Camino de Santiago, the St James cross and the Scallop shell charms on these earrings symbolise travelling on a journey or adventure - in the belief in the protection of St James. It reminds us of our desire to travel, see the world and have fun but to take care on the way and have a safe adventure. In addition to any value that the Camino charm symbol has in itself, or the religious faith that it might represent, these earrings can also act as a REMINDER TO BE CAREFUL. And this can be a powerful aid to staying safe whilst travelling away from home.
