Embla is a magnificent round brooch ornamented in the Borre style.

The style is named after the Borre Mounds in Vestfold, Norway which are the final resting places for many Viking nobles. The site first came to archaeological prominence in 1852 when a ship burial was discovered. In it were a number of finely crafted items in an art style that was later named after the surrounding area. The items have been dated to the last half of the 9th century through the first half of the 10th.

The diameter of the brooch is 4,6cm. The back features a 1mm thick pin and an eye to attach a chain to.
Embla is well suited as a flat alternative to tortoise brooches on apron dresses.

Embla is made in nickel free silver pleaded bronze.
