Posament handout version II

Pictures of the Birka posaments can be found at the Swedish History Museum website (http://historiska.se), along with a link to several resources, including Birka III (the textile finds).

Ethni from Northshield has a lovely spreadsheet of posament finds, relevant links, and she has started adding tutorials.  http://eithni.com/posaments/

Tenntråd comes in various dimensions, with .30 mm being fairly common.  The percentage of silver versus pewter also varies.  I recommend the following links to purchasing:
