Alrik Yuill x EMBLM

Medallions with images of Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, have been worn since ancient timesĀ and are thought to protect and bring safe passage to the wearer. In the 1960's these symbolic pendants were revived and made iconic in California when members of the surf community began wearing them for protection.

As an homage to a more mythical interpretation of Saint Christopher's journey, we chose to depict him as the cynocephali, or dog-headed man.Ā Our Saint Christopher pendant was designed by EMBLM and hand sculpted by our dear friend, Alrik Yuill,Ā a notable visual artist and surfer based in Costa Mesa, CA.

As with all pieces designed via EMBLMā€™sĀ Artist Partnership Collective, a portion of the profits from eachĀ piece sold will be donated to a non-profit organization of the Artist Partnerā€™s choosing. In this case, Yuill has chosenĀ Surfrider Foundation, aĀ non-profit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve the world's oceans.ā£
