The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. It is generally regarded as a journey of the body, mind and spirit. Modern pilgrims choose to do the Camino for personal, spiritual and/or religious reasons - or simply to take time out from their busy, modern lives. For many, the walk is to find inspiration - improving their outlook on life, bringing them into closer contact with nature and expanding their cultural horizons through contact with other pilgrims. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
Gift this beautiful scallop shell necklace to inspire your friends and perhaps bring good fortune to their lives. Lovely Christening or Wedding gift with meaning - Christmas and Birthday present too.
Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can print a personal message on your behalf.
