These decorative beads were inspired by the warmth and comfort of an open fire, The heat and the danger of an inferno and the smouldering embers of a forest fire. Using red cermaic and glass lampwork beads to show the warmth of the flames and gold metal beads with viking runes to pick out the flashes of warm light given off by a fire, finished off with a centrepeice of rose gold lunetas and a dark copper muti circle.
In History Viking beads were not only seen as forms of beautiful decoration but also as a way of showing off their wealth and even more interestingly a form of rudimentary currency, as metal was a more rare substance during the viking era it has been documented that when purchasing goods vikings may break off bits of metal from their beads and use them to pay for their purchase.
