I ordered the Beasty Eike Bracelet, I
was promptly replied to by Birte, who was very nice and
helpful with sizing. I placed the order and even when it
had to be made and the weather delayed it being shipped,
I received it in less than 10 days. It fits perfectly
and it’s a beautiful piece of work. I love it and highly
recommend to anyone. You are wonderful people and
produce quality work. I will order more in the future.
Thank you again! Joseph Z.
The piece arrived today and
I am more than pleased. Its very attractive and fits perfectly.
Thank you for the care you put into it! I look forward to doing
business with you all in the future. Tosten

your help and i have recommended you to many friends

Dear Askjel & Birte,
asked you to forge two pieces for me, i.e. the Skåne Hammer 2
and the Södermanland Cuff. When I received them...I was
speechless; they are breathtaking. They look even better than
the original pieces. I am pretty sure that you both are the
reincarnation of Viking silversmiths. I am so proud to own
such wonderful pieces of art. Thank you very much. Lots and
lots of greetings,
Zanetti - Ph.D. student in Archaeology University of Innsbruck
Askjel and Birte, We have received the
pieces you made for us today. What amazing pieces of art,
as always! It is so delightful to know there are true
Artists who actually hand craft these pieces
themselves. So many Viking vendors sell so called
"handcrafted" pieces which are actually crafted in
Indonesian sweat shops. Good to know there are true
Artists who give real personal service and not just carts
to order from. It is always a delight to speak with you
personally and discuss our order. Thank you so much for
being there and continuing this tradition!
Bjorn and Claudia
Dear Askjel and Birte
Sometime a week or more will go by between checking my email
and I didn't even know you had put my Torc in the mail till I
received it just now. It is...INCREDIBLE! It's hard to believe
but it is even more gorgeous than the picture on your website.
It is heavy and feels...right. I absolutely LOVE it and will
never take it off! I believe you are correct about this piece
wanting to be made because it couldn't fit better if I had
been born wearing it! This is a very special piece of jewelry
(somehow 'jewelry' doesn't seem like the right word) and I
feel special and honored to have it. Thank you so much! You
may rest assured that I will direct anyone who asks about it
to your website. You are lovely people and it has truly been a
pleasure interacting with you.
Have a wonderful day and life up there in the wilds of
We received our Jewellery,

viking era artifacts. Your work and craftsmanship is beyond
compare. We love it. Keep up the good work. Paul & Paula

Hi Askjel & Birte,I just wanted to let you know that I received the bracelet and it fits perfectly; Thanks so much for the great job!
Hello Askjel and Birte, My sister is
blown away by the Slemmedal earrings - she loves them! My 13
year old son, a young man of few words, is enjoying the wolf
print hair tie - if he isn't wearing it, he keeps it with
him at all times. I hope you are well - I wanted you to know
that we are all enjoying your work! Dave N.
Dear Askjel and Birte, Just wanted to let you know I sneaked a peek at the Bracelets before returning them safely to their velvet bags. They are truly beautiful. I am thrilled that they represent the strength and beauty of my daughters. I'm planning on giving them to them on Thanksgiving day - we're very thankful they are in our lives. I will let you know if they have unique responses to their gifts. Again, thank you. I will highly recommend your artistry to my friends. Sincerely, Janna

mail today! It's beautiful, I'm so pleased with it! I'll
wear it everyday with pride. Thank you again,Imogen
wife and I were out of town for a few days, so my bracelet
was waiting for me when I got home. I'm very pleased
with it! The craftsmanship is beautiful. In fact, my wife
took a photo of it, with your business card and sent it to
some friends. I will be recommending your work.
Thank you very much for all the time and work you put into
it. James B
Askjel & Birte, The necklace
arrived today! It is so beautiful and heavy!! It has
just the detail I was looking for. So many pieces I've
seen on other sites have blurred facial features and the
clothing isn't well defined. Your piece is wonderfully
detailed in both face and dress!! And it arrived so
fast! Thank you, Karen
Dear Askjel and Birte.. A heart felt hail
from nikiski alaska! Few months ago, I received an eike cuff
from you. I wanted to let you know that when I removed it from
the felt bag, ....i gasped! Truly a working of beauty and
craftsmanship, and that it was made by true folk is of the
utmost importance to me! Just absolutely love it!! Wanted to say
thank you ~ will proudly wear it and stear its compliments your
Hail! Most respectfully, Tyler Max Hansen.
Good day! I received it today. I love it! Excellent size and
craftsmanship. Perfect! With gratitude, Lonnie
Hi Folks, Good news.. The pendant has
arrived.. It did manage to bypass every scan along the way.. I
would just like to say that I could not be more pleased with
it.. Thanks again for all the help, you're customer care is as
fantastic as your jewelry.. Blessed be Chris James
Askjel and Birte, I love the Thor's
hammer I purchased from you a couple years back and I never
thought another piece of jewelry could surpass it. However the
arm-ring you sent is wonderful and equally as amazing. You are
hands down the finest silversmith of custom made Viking/Norse
jewelry alive today. I never fail to mention where I have
received the Thor's hammer from and I am sure to get many more
compliments from the arm-ring. Thank you for creating both
pieces. In frith, Scott P.
Just to let you know that the goose pin arrived safely
yesterday and I am delighted with it. More
importantly, my wife is thrilled with it! Many thanks
Jonathan W., UK.
Birte,I am absolutely delighted with the bracelets;
they fit well and have been beautifully crafted; they
really are a treasure for the future - thank you so much!
Best Regards, Chris A.
The Einherjar pendant arrived
today. It is even more beautiful than its picture. I am
Very Happy. Many Thanks, Robin D.
Wanted to let you know the necklace is beautiful and my
girlfriend loves it. It was the perfect gift and
you were so helpful in getting it to me on time.
Thanks again. I also appreciate that you followed
up to make sure I got it. It is a beautiful
piece. Thanks again. Vincent
Thank you once again
for allowing me to do business with you. I love
your products and if I had more money, I'd buy you out
completely (especially your jewelry section, I've had
my eye on a few of those rings!).
Fid-Nemed, the Winter-Born
Thank you so much! By the
gods it's gorgeous!! Arrowyn
The Torc I ordered from you recently arrived
today. It's amazing! I bought it as a
birthday gift and it was perfect. I've already
recommended your site to someone, and I will be doing so
a lot more. I was really impressed with the
quality of the item, and the promptness of response to
my questions, and how quickly you got the item out to
me. Thank you for being such a pleasure to shop with,
and for your great product. Annie H.
I have received the cuff and it is beautiful! I can't
thank you enough for your kind and helpful customer service,
and I will be sure
to order from you again as well as recommend you to
all my friends. Blessings,Tanya Y., Arizona
so you know the horn has passed the test ! 14 beers (Yuengling
Porter) between 4 all were impressed at the quality of the
horn but most of all the connectedness to what it is to be a
warrior! Thanks for the quality of your workmanship and
your horns! We are already looking forward to the next
gathering of the horn! Keith G.
received my Pictish War Goose brooch and it is AMAZING!
I am so happy with it in fact I think this will be my favorite
piece. I absolutely love the texture and everything
about it is quality. Thank you so much for your
incredible workmanship. Colleen M., Oregon
silver Valsgaerde belt is one of my most prized possessions,
which I still maintain religiously. I feel like a king when I'm
wearing it. You folks make some of the coolest stuff I've
ever seen. Jeff A.
My order just arrived. I was very
pleased to say the least. I will not hesitate to consider your
goods as the needs arise. Thank you again for your wonderful
craftsmanship. Brett D.
have received my bracelets and and thrilled with them! They
are of exceptional quality, detail and finish: I don't know
quite how to explain it but there is a "softness" and stillness to them;
nothing harsh or brash. I love the detail of the scalloped
edges on the bracelet: such a simple thing but it so sets it
apart. And the detail of the carved heads and the wire weave
on the other is wonderful.I feel like I have owned them for
years already. Thank you so much for the gift of your fine
work and I will be back with another order soon.With much
gratitude, Robert G., Oregon
What can I say .
. . ! Your work is just incredible, and your attention to detail is
so defined! The necklace is so much more spectacular than
the photo on your website. You can't catch the "sparkle"
in it through a photo or computer image! I am sooooo pleased! I can't wait to wear
it!! The earrings are beautiful,
and just the perfect size - not too big or not too small. I love
the way they catch the light! Chris's bracelet is so nice and
sturdy and heavy. He is very happy with it. Needless to say, we are more than happy
with our new jewelry. The hard part will be waiting until
Christmas to actually be able to wear any of it! You have
both been so great and helpful, and I can assure you, you will
hear from us again soon. Thank you for
Louise and Chris
all that glitters and shines in the Viking Market ;

craftsmanship and attention to detail. Thank you so much. I will
be spreading the good word about Urweg.
I just picked up my pkg from the post office - I LOVE
IT! It is sooo cool and beautiful. You have been a
delight to work with - so organized and helpful. Thank you so
much, Jacque D.
OUTSTANDING! All my cohorts who

compliments to you. We will be doing more business in the

I received my son's hammer this past
Saturday and I cannot tell you how pleased I am with it
. I know he will treasure for years to come . I am so
pleased with it I wish to purchase another from you

I wanted to let you know how happy
my wife was to receive the Valkyrie pendant. The Allmother
Frigga has been a source of strength for her. My deepest
appreciation, May the Gods see you all and
smile! Charlie D.
The items arrived safe and sound here. They
are both amazing, i just don't really have the words to tell
you! Thank you so, so much, i'm sure i'll be back for some more
items in the future. All the best! Phil S.
You both for such a beautiful piece of craftsmanship.It is a
remarkable piece of art and revived history. Christina B.
I received my Bag....It's
outstanding! The exceptional quality, workmanship
and detail surpassed my expectations in every way.
Thank you for accommodating my custom request, the bag will
be a durable and treasured part of my riding gear. It
was certainly a pleasure to order from you; I look
forward to ordering additional items in the future. Scott F.
A quick note to tell you how
handsome the Jorvik Viking era ring is, and how it
surpasses my expectations. Newly-created and yet it
appears to have been the very piece worn over a thousand
years ago. Exactly
the synergistic merging of art and antiquity that I want
in jewelry. I will be ordering more pieces. A
superb and satisfying job. Thank you. TGM/New York
My son gave me the Berg Kristall as a gift today - it
is beautiful! I have it on now, and I keep looking at it
because it is so lovely. Your work is wonderful - your
pieces are my favorites. Thank you for such
artistry. Wishing you many blessings. Nancy A.
I just wanted to let you know
that I received my pouch mount and studs this morning. I
have to say they are absolutely stunning. They have far
exceeded my expectations and I just wanted to pass that on
and say thank you for my order. Totally top class! Many
Thanks Dave A.
Oh my goodness, the pieces are
perfect! It feels real to wear
y'all's work - not some slick impersonal modern thing. It is so
beautiful - thank you again for the superb job. Best
wishes, Erin H.
would have to say its absolutely awesomely marvelous, for lack
of being unable to think of something more awesome to
say. Seeing something firsthand compared to viewing a
picture of it is completely different. I see the detail that
went into twisting the silver and the detail of the terminals.
Your hands as well as your talent are truly blessed and I am
quite honored to wear the arm-ring not only with period garb
but with mundane clothing as well. My friends will really be
envious that they don'thave such a cool piece to grace their
arms!! But I will give them your address so they can view your
items and maybe do business with you also. You can solidly bet
that I will return as a customer again, as I've said
earlier in our communications, I do want to have my drinking
horn done by you and I will be sending it to you. You are true
craftspeople and I just cannot express myself enough. Many
thanks for your hard work and efforts through the difficult
time that you had while trying to accomplish this. Bright
Blessings to you all, Roger A.
The pieces I ordered arrived today! This is my second
order from you and I just had to say that I am very pleased once
again. The work you do is of the utmost skill resulting in
items that demonstrate quality in every measure. The heft
of the pieces, sturdiness of construction, the clear details,
even the high level of polish are testament to your consummate
care and craftsmanship. On top of all this, the speed with
which you expedited my order is impressive, too. Thank you
for everything. I predict I will be ordering from you yet
again. Sincerely, Susan H.

I just wanted to let you know that I received the Hallstadt
necklace and two Raven's Disc brooches today. They are
both lovely beyond words. The necklace is stunning!
Everything (the weight of it in hand, the numerous
details, the construction, etc.) exhibits the highest quality.
The brooches are equally beautiful and as well
constructed. I am VERY glad I ordered from you. I am
certain to do so again. Susan

admiring your work for several months now, and this was a
great surprise! He told me how willing you were to
accommodate his request . I must commend you on your quality
of craftsmanship, it is certainly heirloom worthy.
