these valkyrie earrings are a part of the ‘lagertha’s revenge’ collection. a celebration of strong women, and norse mythology and folklore, this piece features 4 hand carved runes - berkana, dagaz, sowelu, and eihwaz. vikings traditionally didn’t use a lot of stones in their jewellery, but later work sometimes included rock crystal, amber, or garnet.
in norse mythology, the valkyrie are a host of women who select which warriors will die in battle, and then accompany half of those to valhalla, while the other half go to freyja’s afterlife field.
these earrings are sterling silver and quartz crystal.
