Nordic Chic Necklaces

Freya's Shields


  • Details
    Variations on my theme honoring the strength, wisdom and courage of the ancient goddess of legend, Freya. In Norse mythology, she represented many elements, including home and hearth, harvest, warrior strength and fertility. My modern pendant designs are a chic combination of ancient design in my scrollwork, the warrior shield shape, and modern sensibility. Strong women (and men, too!) can wear this as an amulet of protection and strength. The pendants are all made to order, choose from these three designs that incorporate some depth in the layers of sterling silver. I make the filigree and granulation (tiny silver spheres) in the traditional Norwegian style, using fine silver wires that I spin into twist shapes, then hand form and solder onto the pendant in many intricate steps. I polish and then apply an oxidation patina to the pendants to highlight the contrasts and design elements.

    You will see the individual listings for the pendants so you may order the designs separately. Choose your favorite, and don't forget to choose a chain length. I include the sterling silver beaded chain with each pendant, in either 16 or 18 inch lengths.
