I've been making viking ladies since the beginning. I enjoy the strength and the character of this pin design. It always causes a fuss when people see it, and everyone knows someone who either is a viking warrior-lady, or someone who needs strength for the battle ahead. To this end, this is a design that is often given to someone recovering from an illness, or someone who is changing something big in their life. It's a reminder to keep going no matter what. Remember, the only way out is through.
I've been told that many a viking lady adorns the lapels of women going into a Big Meeting with a Big Someone, or if they aren't wearing it, they're putting her on the door to their office. Beware!
