Ideal for encouraging calm and clear thinking in travellers
This colourful travel bracelet is meant for someone going on a journey. It comprises a delightful mix of red coral and blue turquoise chips, some pretty silver-coloured flower beads, PLUS a small scallop shell charm, symbolic of the Camino de Santiago pilgrim route.
The 1,000-year-old route to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, is known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish). Some 200,000 people travel to the city each year from all over the world to find inspiration and reflect on their lives in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a symbolic scallop shell like this.
The bracelet is fastened with a lobster clasp and measures approx 7.5" in length with an additional 1.25" extender chain, so suitable for most wrist sizes. It features a pewter scallop shell charm.
