The Valknut is a mysterious symbol consisting of three interlocked triangles, and is thought to be strongly tied to Odin. The name comes from Old Norse for "Knot" and "Slain Warrior", loosely meaning the "knot of those fallen in battle". It is thought that the Valknut was displayed at the burial sights of those who died in battle as a sign that they were to be taken to Valhalla.
This large solid hair bead has the Valknut across the front and back, as well as additional decoration on the sides.
It is hand cast using the traditional lost wax process and hand finished. Cast in yellow bronze and oxidised for better contrast showing the details, it is made and finished in the UK. This is a beautiful and highly detailed hair bead.
