Icelandic Compass Hair/Beard Bead

Icelandic Compass Hair/Beard Bead

(57 customer reviews)

These unique little viking hair/beard beads have been handcrafted and designed in house, every beard/hair bead is hand cut, tooled, dyed, sealed and hand sewn.

More on Vegvísir:

Literally meaning “Way-wiser,” this symbol is likely of much later origin than Viking or proto-Norse times, but still has been called the “Viking compass” by many.

It maintains popularity due to its mystical inscription in the Huld Manuscript from Iceland. Here it is stated that the symbol will prevent the wearer from losing their way, even “in storms or bad weather, (and) even when the way is not known.”

Regardless of whether the Vikings used it, clearly Vegvísir still promotes a magical mindset and a purpose of useful enchantment.

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.

    These are such perfect accents for braids, and they even stay fine in my curly hair. They are well made and the design is perfect!

    I have bought many beard accessories from LykosLeather and they are always high quality, made traditionally, match the description and pictures, and meet my expectations for the items. Keep up the good work!
