The Anglo-Saxons wore jewellery, including brooches, beaded necklaces and bracelets, made from gold, silver, bronze and copper.
These adornments were important status symbols, worn to show their wealth and rank. Common features of Anglo-Saxon jewellery design include symmetry and the use of plant and animal motifs.
Year 5 created their own designs for their pendants- ensuring they had symmetry and some included shells.
We then created the pendants using class and adorned them with gems. Once dry, we painted them using gold, silver and bronze paint.
