Viking Beads

Weathered and etched and aged, as close to the originals as I've been able to manage. Inspired by beads found as grave goods throughout the Viking world. Viking men and women treasured their beads of jet and amber rock, crystal and agate, carved bone and ivory, gold, silver, and especially glass. Women's graves have been found with hundreds and hundreds of beads. These replicas feature gold foil, enamel, layered cane and hand made starburst and checkerboard murrini.
Available in my Etsy Store, $45 for sets of 7 to 9 beads.
