Each individual piece of St. Justin jewelry is crafted by hand in Cornwall, the South West extremity of Britain. This wild and beautiful land was home to the many native Celts who were driven away from the temperate midlands of Britain by invading European warriors, such as the Angles of Northern Germany. It is in places such as Cornwall, Wales and Scotland that the art of the Celts and ancient Britons has survived, carved into stone tombs and discovered on pottery fragments and ornaments.
As the years went by, religious scholars and monks adopted the traditions of Celtic art, creating illuminated texts such as the Lindisfarne Gospels. Their work exemplifies the simple sophistication of form and from their creations are drawn many of St. Justin's favorite designs. As Christian beliefs spread across the world, the Celtic cross evolved, with the circle that surrounds the cross symbolizing the 'great wheel of life' - a belief that is thought to predate Christianity. These carved stone crosses are scattered throughout the country and are a common site in our Churchyards and by our roadsides today.
