Our Viking Serpent Brooch is handmade and detailed small sized tortoise brooch. Tortoise brooches (dress brooches) are worn in pairs on the front of a Viking woman's dress. It was customary to suspend a string of beads and charms between them.
Viking brooches were used as clothes fasteners and worn as an ostentatious display of wealth. These Viking brooches take a variety of different forms incorporating dragons, wolves & mythical beasts into intricate knotwork designs.
