Double Spiral Shield Pendant by St Justin of Penzance
Double Spiral Shield Pendant
A pewter pendant, with an embossed spiral detail, on silver-plated belcher chain.
Spirals can be traced back 7000 years, developing from observing natural examples in shells and plants. Clockwise and anticlockwise spirals represent the inner and outer evolution of the spirit respectively. In relation to the seasonal calendar these relate to the winter and summer, the year being polarised into light and dark seasons. In Celtic belief this translates to the theme in which one always moves from the darkness into the light.
Width: 20mm Height: 37mm | Chain length: 18 inch (45cm)
The venerable alloy of pewter is made of 92% tin, with copper and antimony to harden it and enhance casting. All of our St Justin Pewter products are LEAD FREE.
