This bound leather bracelet takes inspiration from the Viking bracers worn in combat, and it comes complete with Yggdrasil the Tree of Life charm plate. Bracers were mostly used by archers to protect their forearm from the bowstring, but were also often worn by warriors to support and protect their wrists, a weak joint that if failed would easily mean doom on the battlefield. This leather bracelet can be easily worn and adjusted via a clasp on the back of the bracelet, and is available in several leather and metal colors.
Yggdrasil is the world tree in Norse mythology and its trunk is the center of the Nordic spiritual cosmos. Nine worlds are connected by Yggdrasil, and all Gods go to this tree daily to perform their duties. In Norse culture and many other cultures around the globe, the tree often represents eternal life. The constant cycle of death and rebirth brought the belief that life is cyclical and therefore eternal. The world tree became a popular symbol of such belief all over the Earth, and its imagery was often included in religious rituals or depicted on sacred charms.
