Ten years of adventure
El Camino reaches ten years of celebrating travel through its unique bracelets and necklaces.
El Camino Bracelets are now a decade into producing beautiful, customisable travel jewellery for over 75,000 travel lovers worldwide. The company started when owners, Candace and Tom, were hiking the coastline between Barcelona and Monaco in 2013. Here they had the idea for a bracelet that could record their travels, adventures and experiences. Upon return, they began to handmake a few of the bracelets they’d talked about, using beads engraved by a local craftsman to show the destinations and dates of adventures that the wearer had been on. Ten years have passed since the first drawings of an El Camino bracelet were created in a tent on the Costa Brava in Spain, and the company headquarters is now on the north coast of Cornwall. However, there is also a lot that hasn’t changed; El Camino products are still handmade in the UK, almost all of the original employees and suppliers are still part of the team and environmental sustainability remains at the core of the business. The success over the last ten years has enabled El Camino to raise over £17,000 for charities including World Land Trust, NHS Charities, Surfers Against Sewage and Cool Earth.
Customers of El Camino are able to choose from a range of handmade bracelets, necklaces and anklets in different colours. Steps can be added to this jewellery representing the wearer’s travels around the world. El Camino make steps for 240 countries, five oceans, six seas, animals and countless other destinations including cities and landmarks. Custom steps are also available which are extremely popular for sentimental dates, events and names. Adding a new step with every adventure makes this jewellery unique to you, while serving as a stylish reminder of your travels that you can carry wherever you go in the world.
El Camino jewellery would make the perfect bespoke gift for the travel lover in your life this Christmas. Each item is individually handmade from durable and sustainably sourced material, allowing adventurers to wear it while they roam. Commemorate every experience, from a family holiday or a romantic break to climbing mountainsor sailing oceans.
