The Vikings used shields for more than just defense against the blows of an opponent. Viking shields were typically round, a design derived from earlier Germanic shields. A wooden Viking shield was often made from planks of fir, pine, willow, or linden wood. The design usually featured a hole in the center that supported a hand grip covered by a metal boss. This Viking Shield Pendant was created by hand sawing copper sheet into a 40 mm circle. Sterling Silver wire was added for "planks" and the "boss" is a Sterling Silver Sphere. Two of the sections were hand stamped and the pendant has patina added. Comes on a 22 inch faux leather cord.
