Viking "Gold"

Post by stacecase on Sat Jun 14, 2014 12:33 am

Ok...not real gold...but...  Very Happy 

I'm still missing a Runes amber for this bracelet (and a Viking Knot Wink), but I will wear it like this for now Smile



When I am building a theme, I like to look up information on Wikipedia to get ideas. I decided I wanted to do a Viking theme and I learned that amber was an important export good for Vikings, so this seemed appropriate (even though only a few of these are actually amber, the rest are glass).

The center ornament (pale amber with rust ornament) and the Beige bubbles are Trollbeads along with some of the silvers. The rest are artisans: etched and stringers are from DoriWallace, the amber from AmberRegina, and the Goldstone from Pixiebeadcharms, all on Etsy.

The variety of bead designs and colors makes this interesting. It feels like an amber bracelet to me.

It's a lovely bracelet with great ambers & beads and even better silvers. The greyhound lock is stunning! And I really like the knot beads you do have - I wish I could figure out who makes them!

Truly wonderful! I am sure every Viking would have loved to wear it, especially with Thor´s Hammer to protect and all the mead resembling lovely beads Smile

I would like to make a Viking bracelet. There are silvers that I require from FB and the Viking himself.

I didn't look to start with because I was expecting gold Trollbeads and they don't excite me very much.  This is so much more attractive.  Love all your delicate glass.  Perfection!
