Wire You Waiting
At Wire You Waiting, we take the ancient Viking Wire Weave technique and bring it into the modern era by using modern wire and color options, resulting in beautiful, unique jewelry. Viking Wire Weave is a technique used to make jewelry and adornments (clothing/housewares), found in the grave sites of the Norse peoples from the 8th-10th centuries. Wire is woven around a wooden mandrel, then drawn through a paddle with gradually smaller holes, compressing the weave, making the final chain thinner but significantly stronger. Due to the time and cost of this process, it tended to be worn by the upper class Norsemen. Viking Wire Weaving is more rare than the twisted wire jewelry, which uses a thicker piece of metal and usually made at a forge. Historically, men would wear a necklace and/or a single bracelet. Women, on the other hand, would wear any and all adornments (Note: bracelets tended to be worn in pairs for balance).
