The Viking Shield Necklace | Ancient Treasures Collection
Viking Age Scandinavians (800 AD - 1066) traded for and made glass beads. Over a thousand small, but colorful small glass beads have been found at a site in Kaupang, Norway alone. I think of Vikings as strong fighters, so instead of a small bead, I created one of my large shield beads.
The Viking Shield Pendant is set on a bronze bale, and is suspended from a bronze toned 26" chain. The background is silvered ivory with rivers of color flowing over green. Raised dots add tactile interest.
