Rigr Crafts isn't your ordinary crafts business. We are a husband and wife team who love teaching about Viking culture. We participate in many Viking themed events throughout the year as well as small craft shows.
All of our jewelry is handmade by Jacqueline "Ælgiva" Thomas. Each piece is inspired by historical pieces and techniques including wirework and silversmithing. She specializes in a historical style called Trichinopoly Chain (AKA Viking Knit) which was most popular in the late 9th and early 10th centuries. Jackie served in the US Navy for 8 years and began making jewelry in 2017 after finishing 2 enlistments. Eventually the hobby turned into doing a Viking Festival, and here we are!
Shane "Viking Jerk (it's pronounced Yeh-rick)" Strobel makes all of our beard and hair care products. He and Jackie do all product testing themselves before releasing any new products. As the resident beard expert, he knows what beards need and has specially formulated Viking Jerk's Beard Care to grow the most majestic beards possible!
