Migration-Period-NecklacesThe Bead Necklaces of the Migration Period

Granulated Viking BeadNecklaces were not only common among the Vikings. Even in the Late Roman period, necklaces made of glass and enamel were quite common in the north, imported from provincial Roman areas.

Even after the fall of the Western Roman Empire, the production of beads for necklaces continued in the Eastern Roman Empire. Therefore, artefacts of necklaces can often be found in burials from this period, which could consist of several hundred beads.

Amber was also frequently used as a material for necklaces in this period, whereby these amber beads were usually flat-spherical or had a disc-shaped form. As a rule, amber was used for these Roman necklaces, which came from Eastern Europe.

Viking NecklacesViking necklaces

Viking Bead replicaDue to the pagan burial custom that was prevalent in northern Europe in the early Middle Ages, the Vikings often gave their deceased necklaces on their way to the realm of the dead.

For this reason, necklaces with beads, along with pottery shards and iron nails, are among the most common finds of the Viking Age and are found in both richly and poorly furnished graves, whereby young women often had more and old women rather fewer necklaces with them as grave goods.

Necklaces are found in Viking burials almost exclusively in women's graves, whereas in men's graves only single beads are found, for example as a closure for a bag.

Viking women usually wore necklaces close to the neck, but they could just as well be longer and reach down to the chest. In addition, two or even three necklaces were often strung between the tortoise brooches at the same time.

In Sweden, on the island of Gotland and in the Baltic region, Vikings also frequently used chain distributors and stave chain dividers, where a whole row of chains could be attached on top of each other at once.

As a rule, the Vikings threaded their beads on thin bronze wire, as was also common in the Migration Period. The combination of beads, however, seems rather arbitrary to us today and the historical Viking necklaces seem strangely discordant to the modern observer because they do not seem to follow any comprehensible logic at all.

In addition to beads made of glass, bronze and silver, Viking necklaces often contained a pendant or several amulets and even pierced Arabic dirhems. As well, there could be placed further beads on small wire loops on the necklace.

Medieval beadsVikings usually wore necklaces with rather simple beads made of single-coloured and transparent glass in the colours blue, green or violet.

In addition, single or multi-coloured beads of coloured glass or enamel were worn, which the Vikings made of opaque glass paste and which are called mosaic beads or millefiori beads.

Viking necklaces with prismatic rock crystals and carnelians are also known, which had reached the far north via the Vikings' extensive long-distance trade network from the Orient.

Viking metal bead necklacesViking necklaces with metal beads

Viking beadWhile the Vikings originally wore necklaces made of glass, in the second half of the Viking Age they also used filigree beads made of silver or even gold, which were either spherical or double-conical or tubular.

The basics of Viking necklaces with metal beads originate from the Slavic goldsmith's art, in which brooches, pendants and beads with filigree granulation decoration were designed with the simplest means.

Viking necklaces also used the finest wires of silver and tiny beads for metal beads.
The basics of Viking necklaces with metal beads originate from Slavic goldsmithing, in which brooches, pendants and beads with filigree granulation decoration were designed with the simplest means.

The base for Viking necklaces was a chased or cast mould made of sheet silver, onto which the granulated elements, such as filigree balls and thin wires, were soldered.
The solder, however, left hardly any traces perceptible to the eye, and so it seemed as if the granulations were floating above the surface of the bead.
