A great gift for a Camino buddy travelling on a new journey, or as a souvenir of a Camino walk
These simple scallop-shell earrings would make an ideal present for a lady setting off to walk the Camino de Santiago or for some other event in their lives with challenges and goals. The scallop shell shape of the concha symbol of El Camino, is highlighted and stands out against the darker leather background, and so makes a truly striking piece of jewellery with meaning.
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. Some 200,000 people travel to the city 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 lives in a supportive environment. Many carry with them Scallop shells like this as a symbol of safekeeping. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
