Frank Maiolo - Camino Shell Cross of St. James
The sterling silver pendant is approximately 1" in diameter and comes with a sliding knot Greek leather cord.
The Cross of St. James is one of the most important symbols of the Camino.It simulates a Latin cross and a sword with three lilies in her arms and grip. It may have originated in the time of the crusades, when knights wore small crosses with sharp bottom to nail them into the floor and perform their devotions. The sword represents the chivalrous character of St. James his way of martyrdom.
