The Shieldmaiden necklace is a linear chest piece that honors the sacrifice of the woman warrior. Featuring a blackened shield with rising sun, it is also a protector of the earth in Norse mythology.
The sun shield has been cast and plated in a silver that has been hand oxidized. The sun shield was cast from an original Knights of Pythias Sisterhood PFLE medal and hangs from a three heart steel chain with grain texture on a thinner silver plated chain with clasp. Hanging below the shield, is a small pendulum resembling a medieval weapon.
The silver chain measures: 18.25"
The heart chain and pendants hang 5.25" from the chain.
Shield: 1.25" w x 1.5" h
Heart chain: .47" x .39" w
Hand oxidation: This sun has been naturally oxidized by using the hard boiled egg method to avoid using chemicals – naturally there are some imperfections in the blackening but the outcome is very beautiful featuring a lovely rainbow effect with subtle blues and purples. The coloring of the oxidation and medal varies from piece to piece. The coloring of the shield is most accurate in the photographs of the necklace flat on white.
