Gothic Viking Jewelry
made by a Shield Maiden
I am a direct descendant of Rollo the Viking, the first ruler of Normandy. With a history of Shield Maidens in my heritage, I decided to create gothic Viking jewelry that empowered women and men to feel strong, confident, and powerful.
I started making jewelry out of my own minimalist life strategy and to try to combat wasteful, disposable fashion. To me, ethical jewelry means to transform our supply chains to use ethically-sourced, sweatshop-free supplies that are free of toxic chemicals such as mercury, cadmium, and lead, and come from suppliers with Free Trade standards and eco-friendly environments. To this end, I use only stainless steel or precious metals in my gothic Viking jewelry, that I purchase in North America and from ethical sources. In fact, one of our main suppliers uses only solar energy for their operations!
Jewelry should be a guilt-free expression of yourself or a persona you want to embody. With Shield Maiden Jewelry you can have empowering, strength-based Viking styled jewelry without the guilt.
We are all in a state of worry in the world right now, and I am doing my best to help. I wash hands regularly and the end-product and packaging is washed and sanitized before slipping into a shipping envelope. We are taking as many precautions as possible to keep ourselves and others safe.
