The Celtic cross symbolises the bridge to higher energies and planes of existence.
It represents the relationship between the celestial realm (vertical axis) and the earthly plane (horizontal axis).
The circle around the cross symbolises both the Great Wheel of Life and the solar energy.
The tall shafts, like the ancient menhirs and the inscribed stones of the dark ages,
represent the union;between the earth and spirit, the stones firmly fixed in the earth and reaching upwards to the heavens.
In this way it can be seen that Celts easily adapted their ancient religious beliefs to the new ones introduced by Christianity.

Pewter is a malleable metal made of tin, copper and antimony. It melts at around 260 degrees Celsius and can be cast into vulcanised rubber moulds which only deteriorate slowly over many casts.
St.Justin's casts their jewellery and gifts using this method and then painstakingly go through a fettling process to remove any surplus material and casting lines. Each piece is polished and any findings or gemstones are fitted before packing. The whole operation is very labour intensive requiring skills that take many years to perfect.
Pewter is a high quality, durable and affordable alternative to silver.
