Urnes Wolf Viking Earrings
These elegant modern earrings are my own design, but I have taken the smooth flowing Urnes style pattern from an original Viking find; not from earrings, but from a sword. In a remarkable grave in Finland, a wealthy woman was buried with two swords, one of them beautifully ornamented with 11th century viking art. Small animals, that could be wolves or dragons, were cast in the bronze grip and I have used this delicate pattern for our 21st century viking earrings. We make them in either sterling silver, or in 24 carat gold-plated sterling silver.
