The Happy Viking

Since I started The Happy Viking in 2012, I’ve been down quite a few different paths, changed direction and tried various things. Sometimes things have worked and other times they have not. I’ve had some people tell me that I’m all over the place while others comment on how passionate, focussed and spontaneous I am. What I have learnt is that I can’t please everyone so it’s best for me to focus on what makes me happy; to be authentic – be myself and do what I love doing. Those who love what I do will follow me and those who don’t wont. It doesn’t matter.

We are all trying to find our purpose, our path, in life and I feel so grateful that I have found mine – “Keeping the Old Skills Alive”.

In the beginning, my focus for ‘Keeping the Old Skills Alive’ was purely about handcrafted leather. It was about producing wares the way they used to be made – with love, craftsmanship and attention to detail. For me it meant making unique pieces that would last a lifetime, creating from my heart and allowing time for each piece to develop, bringing out its own character and soul. What I wanted was to get away from today’s crazy consumerism and throw away society and to educate people about the value of handcraft – not just leather, but all craft.

I am just as passionate today, if not more, about these values however ‘Keeping the Old Skills Alive’ means so much more to me now than just handcrafted leather. Now there is a ‘bigger picture’ for me and, I guess, less fear about putting myself out there, doing other things – such as Rune readings, and whatever else comes my way.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Hello and welcome to my shop - a place where you will find handmade quality leather crafted items inspired by Viking, Celtic and Medieval cultures, as well as the services I offer as a Rune reader.

All my products are one of a kind.

My art and readings are my passion and my way of living. My heart and soul goes into each piece I make and I take time to create the highest quality product I possibly can. Like good wine, my leatherwork pieces only get better with time. The character and life will intensify and, looked after, will last for many years to come.
