Description
Trichinopoly was used by Anglo-Saxon Norse mainly during the 8th century through 10th century, found in many graves and treasure hoards, for many uses: necklaces, chains for decoration, bracelets, edging for clothing as well as trim. This particular style is not as common as the twisted wire torques that are more often though of today in regards to Viking or Norse jewelry. This class will cover the basics of Viking wire-weaving, and all supplies are provided.
