Is Santiago de Compostela just a place? . . Or an aspiration to travel, to have adventures?
With the small gold scallop shells, these earrings are symptomatic of El Camino de Santiago, the Way of St James - one of the greatest journeys in the world.
As the culmination of the Camino de Santiago ("the Way"), many see Santiago as more than just a place . . rather as an ambition, whether to Santiago itself, or to other locations on our wish list.
The sterling silver Camino charm earrings measure approx 6cms total length from the top of the hook to the bottom of the charm. They consist of sterling silver ear wires with silver-coated and gold-coated ceramic washers, and colourful turquoise ceramic beads, finished off with the scallop shell charm (concha de viera).
Wearing these Camino earrings can remind us of our dream to get to Santiago de Compostela - OR, to any other place.
