These unique little viking hair/beard beads have been hand crafted and designed in house, every beard/hair bead is hand cut, tooled, dyed, sealed and hand sewn.
More on Ægishjálmur (Helm of Awe):
Literally meaning “Helm of Awe” or “Helm of Terror,” this striking symbol dates back to the Middle Ages and likely to the Viking Age as well, although this cannot be proven.
It famously appears in an Icelandic manuscript known as Galdrabók that details the use of magic. As the name of the symbol suggests, it is affiliated with inducing or inciting awe and terror in those that see it.
Ægishjálmur is mentioned in the Völsunga saga as well, when our hero Sigurd defeats the dragon Fafnir and takes the helm from him. Whether this is the symbol or an actual helmet (perhaps bearing the symbol) we may never know.
Regardless, those with a warrior spirit or a need for protection may benefit from keeping this symbol nearby.
These beads are currently only available in Brown leather and have an average internal dimension of 12mm or just under a 1/2 an inch.
Price is for one bead, shipping will be combined when multiple are purchased to save you money.
