Product number: 3694
Heavy and very impressive bracelet in fine silver with handstamped details. The original bracelet was a part of a treasure find from Grötlingbo Mårtens in Gotland, Sweden.
The massive, prominent piece has been wholly handmade according to ancient Viking silversmithing techniques with scrupulous attention to details. The bracelet is first handforged, after which it is decorated through punching every single detail on it by hand with a stamp and hammer. Needless to say, the difficulty level is extreme since there isn't room for even a single mistake during the process. Few have the skill to craft them, which makes bracelets like this quite rare.
