On the road to good health or recovery, this necklace could encourage physical and mental wellbeing
Traditionally, shell jewellery is symbolic of one of the greatest journeys in the world - the 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago) which criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. At least 300,000 people travel the Camino every year: Many travellers do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy modern lives and finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their life in a supportive environment.
But everyone experiences a journey in a different way and pilgrim jewelry such as this can act as a constant reminder of aims and goals (including our wellbeing) helping us to be more aware of the things that affect us on a day-to-day basis. So on the journey to good health and mental wellbeing, this shell necklace could be ideal.
Detail: The shell-shaped pendant is 18mm long by 15mm wide. It hangs on a 2mm wide, rainbow cable chain which measures approx. 45cm (18") in length with a 5cm (2") extender. The shell changes colour as it moves in the light - an enchanting feature of this meaningful necklace.
The mind can have a strong influence on the body, and in some cases, even help the body heal. This ‘placebo effect’ can be very powerful and is much more than just positive thinking. Studies have shown that symbolic jewellery like this can boost people's confidence, and many people admit there’s power in a thought made positive by a symbolic token - being a constant reminder of purpose and desire.
