Q: What is Viking knit jewelry, you ask?
A: Lovely handmade chains have been found in Viking treasure troves. Made from melted down coins turned into fine wire, these chains were made using a loop in loop technique. These same techniques can be used today, though we don’t tend to use coin silver anymore. Sterling silver and copper in a fine gauge is often used today.
Q: What are lamp work beads?
A: Lamp work Beads are handmade glass beads. Glass beads are crafted using a centuries-old process called lampworking. Rods of colorful glass are melted in a special torch and the molten glass is embellished using a variety of techniques and materials, creating unique and one-of-a-kind beads.
“I use Sterling Silver, hand crafted lamp work glass beads, semi-precious gems and gemstones, Swarovski crystals and much more, combined with a little love and passion to create Viking knit jewelry that is truly unique. “ –Robyn Hall, jewelry artist
