Viking wolf necklace inspired by the giant wolf, Fenrir, designed in Borre style. Our Fenrir necklace comes with braided leather cord and wolf heads terminals. The pendant is inspired by the authentic Viking art Borre and the wolf heads used as terminals draw inspiration from the classic Icelandic Wolf Cross.
Borre style art takes its name from a ship burial at Borre in Vestfold, Norway. The style is known for the "gripping beasts" with ribbon-shaped body as well as geometrical shapes, knot patterns and zoomorphic motifs.
Fenrir or Fenris is the name of the legendary gigantic wolf in Norse Mythology. In several manuscripts of the Viking Age, Fenrir was also referred to as Hróðvitnir which translates to “fame wolf” and Vánagandr which means “monster of the river”. The wolf Fenrir is the son of god Loki and the giantess Angrboda who had two more children, Jörmungandr known as “The World Serpent” and the goddess of the Underworld Hel.
