Viking Knit is an ancient Viking method used to make ornamental embellishment by weaving metal wire to form tubes. This is a more complex double weave which adds density and is visually striking, yet simple.
Pictured are necklaces using two different silver wires with completely different looks. The bright silver of Argentium wire - which is a relatively new alloy of silver similar to sterling looks like pure silver which is brighter but Argentium has a higher resistance to tarnish. Sterling silver wire allows the piece to be antiqued which adds the dark oxidation of the interior, however, sterling is more prone to tarnish. The piece is finished with a Hills Tribe* fine silver toggle clasp which can be worn in front as a focal or in back so the intricate weave catches the eye.
*Thai silver beads and components are made by the Karen Hill Tribe silversmiths in northern Thailand using traditional tribal methods. Each piece is made by hand using primitive tools, so each one is a unique work of art in itself.
Length: Approximately 18 in.
