About the Scallop Shell:
The scallop shell is a traditional symbol of pilgrimage representing a physical and spiritual journey. The year 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of one of the most famous pilgrimages in history – the voyage of the Mayflower and the founding of Plymouth Colony. The Plymouth Forefathers became known as “Pilgrims” after the American Revolution, and the scallop shell was sometimes used in images and monuments associated with them.
LOLA® designs and creates beautiful, high-quality handcrafted pendants and other jewelry which mark important moments in people’s lives. Bringing back the lost art of enameling, combining delicate colored glass hand-painted and embossed over a sterling silver design, then forging them to 1,600 degrees, and finally hand-polishing each piece, each pendant is one-of-a-kind just like the person who wears it.
