St. Petrocs Cross Pendant
- St Petroc was a Welsh nobleman who was educated in an Irish monastery and then sailed with a small band of followers to the Camel estuary. He built a church at Padstow with a Celtic monastery as a centre for spreading the Christian faith. In his travels he also started churches in Bodmin and Little Petherick, as well as in many parts of Britain, Wales and Brittany. King Constantine ruled the area at this time and was said to have been converted to Christianity by St Petroc when he rescued the deer that the King was hunting.
There are many legends about St Petroc’s healing, miracles and banishing monsters. He was buried at Padstow. In the 12th Century St Petroc’s Church in Bodmin obtained his relics and put them in a painted ivory casket, which can still be seen today..
The venerable alloy of pewter is made of 92% tin with copper and antimony to harden it and enhance casting. At St Justin the distinguished tradition of casting pewter lives on. High quality pewter ingots are fused in a crucible and the molten metal is poured into rubber moulds created from the original master design.
After cooling and linishing, the items are hand-polished and assembled by craftsmen.
