Jewelry Making: Viking Knitting: Trichinopoly on a Dowel with Marilyn Romatka

Let's make some Jewelry!

Also called “Viking Chain Netting” and “Viking Weaving”, this jewelry technique is done with neither knitting needles nor a loom, but instead with thin wire on a stick! 

Examples of these chains have been found in various archeological sites in Scandinavia dating back to the 8thcentury A.D. You will be using these techniques to make a beautiful chain necklace, suitable for a pendant or beads. The chain looks exquisite and complicated, but the process is simple and straightforward. This is a great portable handicraft you can do on the go!

Marilyn teaches a variety of living folk art crafts around the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Her book, Creative Crafts of the World, is an excellent guide for learning a variety of folk art crafts and techniques that have stood the test of time.

Tuition of $50 includes: 3 hours of instruction and guidance, and the Kit which includes all the wire (many colors available), bending mandrel, 8 pg. full color handout, endcaps, closure findings, and use of the plate to finish the craft. The product of this class may be viewed at:
