Cross with scallop shell + heart ~ silver
A gift from the heart for life's Camino
This sterling silver open cross bears the symbolic scallop shell of the Camino de Santiago and nestling behind it is the cutest little puffed heart.
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 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 as depicted on this cross. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.
