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.

Askjel & Birte  i would like to inform you that my amulet arrived safely and very quickly,  the casting is of very high quality,.thank you for your help and i have recommended you to many friends
thank you for posting it as i requested just normal post airmail all is good. once again many thanks,  Jason

 Dear Askjel & Birte,
I 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,
Dario Zanetti - Ph.D. student in Archaeology University of Innsbruck (Austria)"

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 Montana...
Sincerely, Carey

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

Hello,My 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 way!
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!).
 Crimthann of 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

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

I 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

Just 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.

Your 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.

I 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 everything!    Sincerely,    Louise and Chris

You're all that glitters and shines in the Viking Market ;  Nessie

I received my cuff today and am very pleased with the craftsmanship and attention to detail. Thank you so much. I will be spreading the good word about Urweg.
Mark P., TN

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 saw it said it was VERY nice and I pass along their compliments to you. We will be doing more business in the near future. Thank you much, Evan.

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 .  Have a most prosperous day! Jim G.

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.

Thank 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.

I 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 discovered your website a couple of days ago and had to tell you that your work is the most beautiful Viking metalwork I have ever seen. It is exquisite and a joy to the soul.  Thank you. Lois D., Los Angeles

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

These bracelets will be treasured heirlooms that I will pass down to my son. I can't thank you enough for spending your time and creativity to make these so special for me. I hope this letter conveys how much I appreciate your efforts. Jeff, California

I must commend you on your quality of craftsmanship, it is certainly heirloom worthy.
 Thank you once again for creating such remarkable pieces of wearable art, for the mere term "jewelry" fails to describe them.

Just a quick note to tell you how much I am enjoying the wrist torque I purchased from you. I have had a lot of comments about it. I also love the web site. I would be interested in another wrist torque similar to the one I have, but with a boar or boars head in the middle.
