Thor's Hammer Pendant
Red-bearded Thor, the favorite Viking God, was the people's champion with his supernatural strength and feisty humor. When he swung his hammer, Mjollnir, Thor was invincible thus small hammers were often worn as tokens of identification and loyalty. Mjollnir is spelled in runes on this hammer. Wear or carry for Inner Strength.
Approximate size is 1 inch.
Each charm is hand-finished in lead-free pewter and includes a chain along with information on the pendant.
From the Trove of Valhalla Jewelry Collection. By way of background, the Viking civilization flourished during 700 AD to 1,000 AD throughout northern Europe. Artists and craftsmen, working in gold, copper, silver and bronze, evolved a distinctive design style in which strands are plaited and interlaced with animal-like creatures. The Vikings concealed hoards of ornaments and silver believing that what was buried would be enjoyed in the afterlife. Through archaeological finds of treasure-trove, we can experience the wonders of the Viking age, which have been re-created here in this unique range of pendants. Each pendant comes with a chain and a booklet which explains the significance of all the pieces in the collection.
