Torcs, also called Torq or Torque, were worn in ancient Briton and Europe, some 2000 years ago, particularly by the Gauls and Vikings. They were generally a single piece or strands of metal, twisted together, to form a large, rigid ring.
This understated, stylish neck torc is made with bronze wire, which I have hand forged, hammering the ends and center of the piece, creating a tapered widening on these sections. I have then hammered a textured detail over these sections to finish this sleek design. The pointed shape of this torc makes it possible to wear with a pendant, or on it's own for a stunning minimalist look.
The Torc has an inner circumference of 17" and measures 1/8" at it's widest point at the front.
This item comes in a jewellery box.
