Staffordshire Hoard & Sutton Hoo shield treasures recreated

Waelcyrge/Valkyrie pendant

Handmade in English Silver Pewter

This original winged Waelcyrge design is made within the spirit of our time.

The Old English cognate terms wælcyrge and wælcyrie appear in several Old English manuscripts, and scholars have explored whether the terms appear in Old English by way of Norse influence, or reflect a tradition also native among the early English. Scholarly theories have been proposed about the relation between the valkyries, the Norns, and the dísir, all of which are supernatural figures associated with fate. Archaeological excavations throughout both in Scandinavia, and in this case eastern England, have uncovered amulets theorized as depicting valkyries.
