    • Description

      This ring is my own design, using the simple elegance of the Urnes viking art style from the 11th century. The Urnes animal imagery is very stylised and is open to interpretation. Some people see the pattern on this ring as a viking serpent or dragon. This motif occurs often in viking art, symbolising the balancing forces of nature and protection against harm. Alternatively it could represent a swan. The swan occurs in Viking legend as the bird form of the swan maidens, nature spirits who were guardians of the natural world.

      I have remade the flowing lines of this ancient Urnes motif as a ring for the 21st century. You will have to let your heart decide the meaning of the pattern.
