Ombre Stone Choker Necklace. Skald Chain.

$97.00 USD

Sterling silver chain choker inspired by Orkney rainbows and Old Norse poetry.
  • Made of a multitude of semi-precious stone beads: upcycled freshwater pearls, labradorite, sleeping beauty turquoise, chrysoprase, amethyst and many others
  • A study in the colours of many shimmering rainbows over the sea in Orkney
  • This is a choker necklace-- 14 1/2" or 37cm long. You can see it sits on the neck of my UK size 14 mannequin with a 14" neck
  • This chain is handmade one link at a time in sterling silver
  • Necklace closes with a hand forged clasp in my bird mother shape
  • A little silver rain-drop paisley charm dangles from the clasp
  • This playful necklace is named after the Old Norse bards--skalds--poets and lore makers. Each is created one at a time with a poetic impulse-- you could say they are free verse!
This current version is 17" or 43cm long and has a double-sided copper plated pewter lotus tag accent and a fascinating assortment of Czech glass beads arranged in an ombre colour progression. The wrapped chain hangs from copper plated brass with a hand forged copper clasp in my Bird Mother shape.

The Skald Strands are designed to be layered with my longer pieces, and can be made in any length or colourway as a custom order. Contact me with any queries.

All pieces are made by hand or sourced with care from our home studio in Kirkwall, Orkney. Ally's designs are inspired by the wild, ancient Orkney landscape with its unique blend of Scottish and Norse culture and history.
