Tau Cross necklace of St Francis ~ hand-carved jet
. . a gift of faith for moving forward, handmade azabache from artisans in Asturias, Spain
This cross is the Tau Cross (Tau Cruz) of St Francis. It has been hand carved in Asturias, northern Spain, and is hung on a 925 sterling silver snake chain which compliments the jet black azabache perfectly. This cross is symbolic of the Franciscan Order and of St Francis of Assisi, and also a symbol of life and reincarnation, as well as pilgrimage. It is often thought of as meaning contemplation, acceptance, patience and waiting, as someone moves on in their life or goes on a journey. A wonderful piece of St Francis jewelry, and jewellery linked to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain (the final destination of the greatest of all pilgrim routes in the Christian world - El Camino, the Way of St James).

It is said that "Jet purifies and protects" originating from the Jurassic period on earth, some 65 million years ago, in the forests of the northern hemisphere - particularly in northern Europe. Crosses that feature Jet (azabache in Spanish), make ideal gifts for someone who is starting a new phase in their life, or a new beginning - for example, after a divorce or relational break-up, or after a loss of some kind. We have also seen it gifted to people embarking on a new career or starting a new job, in order to wish good luck and success in their 'new' life.
Wish your friends or loved-ones well by sending this meaningful present. It is the ideal gift for someone who is about to change direction in their life (e.g. new beginnings, new start or new job) or go on some sort of a pilgrimage.
