Nearly 1,300 years ago, Vikings used long pieces of silver and gold wire to weave ropes. These woven wire ropes were then stretched and made into jewellery for powerful Viking leaders. This wire weaving is called Viking knit (or trichinopoly chain).
This bracelet is made from Sterling Silver wire. The Viking knit chain is finished with 2 handmade wire caps and a handmade hook clasp. The bracelet measures 8"
I have oxidised this piece, to highlight the detail.
This item comes in a jewellery box.
