Knitting Vikings

Although they’re not yet ready for the shop page, I’ve been working on my collection of large-holed silver-cored beads for a while now.

Although there are lots (and lots) of suitable ready-made chains on the market, I thought I’d like to have a go at making my own ‘Viking knit’ bracelet to see whether it is feasible to produce these for sale alongside my range of beads.

After a brilliant instruction session with Julie Holt at the Surrey Jewellery School, I was good to go, and off I went to practise…. I thought you might like to see the story so far.
