The Vikings were the most powerful people in northwestern Europe for nearly five centuries from about AD 800. Their longships were fast and sleek. Powered by sail or oars, they were ideally suited for raiding because their shallow draught meant that they could travel up estuaries and rivers. The Vikings traveled from Norway east to the Black Sea and west to found colonies in Iceland and Greenland. The Norse sagas tell us that the explorer Leif Ericsson went farther, becoming the first European to set foot in North America, when he reached New Foundland or “Vinland” around the year 1001.
The design of the Valknut is always a series of three interlocking triangles. Sometimes, the triangles are drawn in the Borromean style as three discreet but overlapping and interlocking shapes; however, the more interesting variation is an ingenious unicursal where a single, unending line completes all three shapes as one.
Each pendant is precisely handmade. The process of making one pendant can take up to two days – it requires the closest attention to ensure the highest possible quality.
