Tyr Runic Armband - Viking Tiwaz and Algiz Victory and Protection Runes Armband Cuff Bracelet
Tyr Runic Victory Bracelet - Tiwaz and Algiz Victory and Protection Runes Armband Cuff Bracelet
We are delighted to offer this beautiful and powerful armband cuff bracelet. This statement piece is dedicated to the honour of the Norse/Anglo Saxon God Tyr/Tiw and to notions of protection and victory in battle.
The central motif is a double bind rune of the Elder Futhark Runes Algiz (representing protection and said to derive from the shape of the antlers of stag) and Fehu (representing plenty and abundance). Each flank depicts 9 stacked Tiwaz runes. Tiw/Tyr is the god victory and justice. There are many ancient inscriptions and engraving on weapons of this rune believed to be invocations to Tyr for victory,
In the Eddas (Old Norse Legends) in Sigrdrífumál the valkyrie, Sigrdrífa tells Sigurd to carve "victory runes" on his sword and invoke Tyr.
- Sigrúnar skaltu kunna,
- ef þú vilt sigr hafa,
- ok rísta á hjalti hjörs,
- sumar á véttrimum,
- sumar á valböstum,
- ok nefna tysvar Tý.
- Winning-runes learn,
- if thou longest to win,
- And the runes on thy sword-hilt write;
- Some on the furrow,
- and some on the flat,
- And twice shalt thou call on Tyr.

Copper and its alloys; bronze and brass, are natural materials with proven anti-microbial properties and although we can make no claims, some say anti-inflammatory effects are helpful for joint pain. Unless otherwise stated your piece will come coated in a tough invisible transparent lacquer to protect the finish however over time and depending on how its treated this coating may break down. As such, depending on your body chemistry and atmospheric conditions this piece may leave a harmless greenish deposit on the skin. This is easily washed off and can be minimised by keeping the ring clean and dry or lacquering/waxing it yourself.
