Viking Bead Dividers With Bird Design


    • Description

      These beautiful bird design bead dividers make a striking addition to your brooches Wealthy women in the Viking Age displayed their status through what they wore. An important part of this were the precious beads hung between the tortoise brooches, or paired brooches. Various examples of these bead dividers, or bead separaters, have been found. These ones are my own design, inspired by an original find of a very simple bird-shaped divider. I have used the 9th-10th century Borre art style to decorate mine, and drilled each one with 7 holes for affixing the strings.

      The beak of the bird can be left as a hook, or bent closed around a ring or loop.

      Price is for the pair.

      Length 45mm 

      Weight Sterling Silver Pair 28g (Weight may vary from piece to piece)

      Raven bead dividers

      I belong to a viking re-enactment
      Group with Raven in the name. I
      Absolutely fell in love with these
      wonderful bead dividers when I
      saw them. I bought them and they
      have been part of my costume
      for several years and much
      Admired by others. My beads are
      displayed beautifully hanging
      between them, I love wearing
      them. The quality is perfect.

      Thank you Eve
