Viking age women's jewelry set
During the viking age in Scandinavia, women often wore elaborate sets of oval brooches with strings of beads and associated jewelry pieces depended from them as a status symbol. This is my interpretation of one such set. Bronze, Antler and Glass.
Viking reenactment: a linen undergarment, a brown woolen dress with long sleeves, and an apron dress with silk decorations and metal posaments. Also a blue coat, a checkered shawl and a pair of needle bound mittens (dyed with yellow leek). On my head I'm wearing a silk veil, fastened to a linen cap with two needles. Everything is hand sewn with waxed linen thread. The jewelry is mainly Birka (as the rest of the outfit), but the large box brooch in front is based on a find from Gotland.
