Viking knit, also known as Trichinopoly Chain, was most popular during the late 9th and early 10th centuries (which is why it is known as Viking knit) and was worn by both men and women. All of our Viking knit jewelry is made in a historically accurate way by taking long pieces of wire and "knitting" them round a dowel to form a tube, then pulling the tube through a draw plate to the desired diameter. Each bracelet uses approximately 15-20' of wire and each necklace uses 30-45+' of wire. See the last photo for an example of REAL in work Viking Knit from Viking Age Scandinavia in my personal collection for educating about historical jewelry at events! We can make these pieces in raw copper, oxidized copper, brass, bronze, or sterling silver.
See the available options for the current length and diameter of chains in stock and ready to ship. Additional jump rings for adjustable length can be added on request.
If the length/diameter you would like is not currently in stock, please message us for custom order information and our current lead times.
