After my last poll about doing history posts I have been dying to find some time to sit down and write about some of the pieces i sell so lets start out easy with one of my favorite pieces that i wear daily.

This particular piece is based off of a finding from Tromsø a Northern city located in Norway. This gorgeous horde of jewelry was accidentally found by two five year olds playing around the roots of a tree in 2005. Archeologist went on site and were able to find a few other items including, a silver bead as well as an intricately woven silver chain with bronze end terminals in the shape of a dragon, and lastly a stunning brooch these items were dated and from around 900 AD. Source NRK.no

In the second picture you will see a bracelet inspired by the original finding and hand crafted in Sweden by Stig owner of @viking_kristall

Im honored to he able to sell his amazing wares alongside mine and you can find these bracelets as well as some matching woven chains on my website www.lykosleather.com

Really appreciate everyones patience and understanding that artisan made items take time to create, leather in a lot of ways is very unforgiving a single miss strike of the hammer or hell even a too long finger nail gently touching the wet surface can ruin the thing before its dried and cured. I work as fast as i humanely can with 6 years of professional leather work under my belt. So i think the next time i get a complaint for taking to long i will challenge the person to make the item faster then me and just as nice haha hell i would probably offer them a job if they were able to do it!

I lost a good portion of my photos of my trip to Norway but at least i still have a few gems like this photo taken with @nornewoven at the sverd i fjell monument where Harold fair hair united all of Norway under one crown in 872. largest of these swords representing kind Harold and the two smaller ones representing the two other defeated kings

Soo apparently i forgot to post this with life being crazy lately but, heres the lovely brittany from @midgaarb rocking her garb as well as my “Kings Ransom” belt which was a seriously fun knot-work pattern to tool if not a bit mind numbing, im also super excited that i have some viking age buckles coming to the shop soon so i will be adding a bunch of new listings and upgrade options for existing belts. Last but not least go check out @the_bone_carver who made the beautiful knot-work antler pendant, we have a couple collaborations coming up soon!
