Brass Thistle Torc
When Scotland was ravaged by Viking invaders, a raiding party was preparing to attack a group of Scots, under cover of darkness. However, they crossed a patch of Thistles with their bare feet, letting out cries of pain and alerting the Scots, who were able to fight them off.
This thistle torc is constructed with a light braid of wire, and is approximately 1/4 inch (6 mm) thick. Available in bronze or sterling silver.
