Camino de Santiago jewelry - scallop shell necklace / concha de vieira ~ large
A spiritual gift of inspiration
Wow! This is something special - a large, and absolutely stunning sterling-silver scallop shell / concha de vieira symbol of the Camino de Santiago . . beautifully hand-crafted in Galicia, northern Spain.
The 1,000-year-old Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish), criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. At least 200,000 people travel the Camino each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy/modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a Scallop shell symbol like this. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
