After my last poll about doing history posts I have been dying to find some time to sit down and write about some of the pieces i sell so lets start out easy with one of my favorite pieces that i wear daily.
This particular piece is based off of a finding from Tromsø a Northern city located in Norway. This gorgeous horde of jewelry was accidentally found by two five year olds playing around the roots of a tree in 2005. Archeologist went on site and were able to find a few other items including, a silver bead as well as an intricately woven silver chain with bronze end terminals in the shape of a dragon, and lastly a stunning brooch these items were dated and from around 900 AD.
