Dyrs Hjarta Art | Enamel Pin Series
This series of enamel pins was designed by Dyrs Hjarta Art. All 3 are exclusively available now on Northern Fire individually or within the series.
Included in this Series are the following designs:
Dyrs Hjarta Logo
This enamel pin features the logo of Dyrs Hjarta Art designed to emulate a Nordic style beast head. As an artist influenced strongly by early Nordic art styles, Gloria based her logo on some of the Viking Age beasts seen in the Gokstad and Oseberg ship burials.
Oseberg Ship Prow
The Oseberg ship commands attention through both its size and artistry, revealing the power that symbolism had for the Vikings - even in death.
Its massive spiral prow incorporates a snake head and gripping beasts, all of which were designed to convey the impact and eloquence of those laid to rest within.
Dyrs Hjarta Art created this enamel pin to commemorate these features. Due to its slightly larger size, this pin is fastened with two clasps.
Mari Lywd Horse Skull
In parts of Wales, horse skulls are decorated to create the folk character known as Mari Lywd. The skull is mounted on a pole and carried by an individual draped in a white vale who will visit nearby farms and villages dressed as the undead beast on Christmas Day.
This pin details the Mari Lywd with Iron Age Celtic inspired decoration.
Material & Make
Our pins are crafted in solid metal with enamel detailing and a sturdy pin for security of closure and longevity.
About The Artist
Gloria Notarangelo, known in her work as Dyrs Hjarta Art, commands attention with her bold linework and traditional methods of dotwork. Her knowledge of Nordic artistry allows her to create imagery based on the historical artifacts she has admired over the years, bringing to life traditional styles and symbolism in order to tell stories through her work. To friends and family she is known as a nurturing plant-lover, though she is most often wielding a tattoo gun as a full-time professional artist with Sacred Knot Tattoo in North Wales. You’ll find handcrafted goods, original paintings, prints, pins, and jewellery by Gloria on Northern Fire.
