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 1.1 inch circle. Sterling Silver wire was added for "planks" and the "boss" is a Sterling Silver Sphere. The pendant has patina added as well as "dents and dings" since the Vikings used their shields! Comes on a 18 inch faux leather cord.
