In case we have not met yet.
We are Connor and Audhild, the creators of Valhalla’s Silver, based in Northern Ireland. In our team we also have John Kiernan, who does meticulous research.
We have a passion for the Viking Age that started for us both many years ago, in two different countries, and brought us together in yet another country!
Connor was part of a Viking group in Northern Ireland, and Audhild served as the lady’s captain of the Viking long ship crew for the ship “Haakon Haakonsson” in Norway.
Both of our respective groups travelled to York, England each year for the Jorvik Viking Festival where we would race our long ships on the River Ouse, trade, and commune with our fellow enthusiast. This is where fate brought us together, and our journey began almost two decades ago. (If not for the Viking community, we would probably never have met).
Since that time, we have been acquiring the knowledge and know-how to replicate faithful representation of the art of our ancestors, as well as draw from them the inspiration to create our own unique designs.
We demonstrate this knowledge and participate in Experimental Archaeology work. Anything to enhance our understanding of those who came before.
Each individual piece of wearable art is painstakingly created by us, by hand, in the manner it was originally fabricated. Some of the tools have changed, but the technological manner in which it is formed has not. Each wax model is carved meticulously by hand, each mold hand poured, every wire hand twisted.
We take pride in our work.
We thank you for your continued support of Valhalla’s Silver and the community we love.
Inspired by our Ancestors.
