Crafted from fine pewter, this pendant comes complete with a 33" black cord and hangs on a inscribed legend card.


The symbol of the four directions was so deeply ingrained in the mind of the West that when the compass appeared in the 13th century, it became a spiritual symbol almost overnight. It oriented you on this earth, and it could tell you which way to go, if you knew your destination. It's a symbol of guidance and direction. It also symbolizes the journey through time, and the change that years make on a person are deeper than any passage across the land. The one making that journey is the only real constant thing in life. Except that a person's perception changes as they go through the journey, so even that isn't sure. On a journey where you can't be sure of things, it's best to carry a compass. If each life is a trip through time, then its cargo is the spirit it carries and safeguards - the single jewel, glowing from the center.
