A handmade pewter necklace in the shape of a Viking period Key. Keys would have been worn by Viking women to show that they were in charge of all locked items - like the house and the chests of jewellery and money. In Viking times It was the women and not their husbands who would be in control of a household's valuables.
Comes ready to wear with a length of black waxed cord.
Part of our Elite series. Hand crafted from lead, nickel and cadmium-free pewter and produced by Viking jewelry craftsmen and specialists in the United Kingdom.
