MUSEUM COMISSIONS AND JEWELRY

 
 

The brooches and other jewellery displayed on this page are all one-of-a-kind objects.They have been made for the needs of experimental archeology projects or to be given as presents. Only few have been sold commercially.

The pictures on this page are meant to present a different, "gentler" side of bladesmiths work. The museum projects are made in co-operation with researchers of the field, with an accurate and functional reconstruction as a goal.
