The Beginnings

Before time, there was only a primordial abyss. There was no sea nor sky, just this endless void called Ginnungagap—inspiration to our triple Black and Black bracelet.

Somehow Yggdrasil, an ash tree, started to spring in the Ginnungagap. This tree would be responsible for all life and connecting the different realms in norse mythology, for which we honour Yggdrasil with the Thor Forest Green and Gold bracelet. On its branches two realms were born: Muspelheim, to the south of Ginnungagap; and Niflheim, up north.

Muspelheim is boiling hot—almost as much as the double Orange and Gold bracelet—and always lit due to its violent and continuous fires, while Niflheim is a frozen land of mist and darkness where icy rivers flow from the single spring Hvergelmir. If you prefer the frozen atmosphere, we would recommend checking out the double Blue and Silver bracelet.

Although these two worlds were set apart by Ginnungagap, slowly a breeze spread Muspelheim’s sparks and embers into the void, while up north the river’s waters were getting into Ginnungagap.

Once the warmth coming from Muspelheim met the rime from the rivers, the ice melted, turning into water and from droplets Ymir, the first ice giant, was created along Auðumbla, the cow.

From Ymir’s sweat, three children were formed—a boy and a girl from his armpit’s sweat, and a six-headed son from his legs—starting a line of frost giants, the Jötnar. Inspired by the ice giants we came up with a triple Black and Silver bracelet for you to wrap three times around your wrist, giant’s sweat free. Ymir and his family would feed on the Auðumbla’s milk, who’d in turn get nourishment from the salt in the ice she would lick. After three days of licking an ice block, she uncovered a frozen body: Búri, the first of all gods.
