This pendant is a direct replica of a tenth century Mjölnir (Thor’s hammer) amulet found in Gotland, current day Sweden.
The design varies slightly on each side, and it can be worn on either. Likely, the images represent a sun and the moon (seen in pictures 1 and 2 above).
It comes with a genuine leather cord.
In Norse Mythology, Sól and Máni are a cosmological sister and brother pair that respectively lead the sun and the moon through the skies. They are perpetually chased by the wolves Sköll and Hati, and will be devoured by them during Ragnarök.

More background on Mjölnir (Thor’s Hammer):
In Norse mythology, Mjölnir is the hammer of the god Thor. Silver and bronze pendants of the hammer are some of the most commonly found jewelry artifacts of the Viking age.
Thor resonated (and was quite popular) with common people, so Mjölnir was a symbol many Norse people could connect with and utilize as a form of identity and allegiance. The word itself directly translates to “crusher” or something similar.
Mjölnir itself possessed powerful magical properties, imbued during its creation. According to Snorri’s Prose Edda, when thrown by Thor, it never missed its target, and it always came back to him. It can also be shrunken small so it can be worn in a pocket of Thor’s, or perhaps as an amulet by the god.
The hammer’s defining characteristic is its unintentionally short handle/shaft, a result of Loki terrorizing the blacksmithing dwarves Eitri and Brokkr while they forged it.

Beautiful Mjolnir, and just the right size for me! I re-strung it on a silver chain for a more delicate look. Very happy with my purchase.
Beautiful. Ordered the smallest size, and the detail is crystal clear. Great quality. Thank you!!

This is my second one of these – the quality is excellent! You won't be disappointed! They are solid and well made and based on a an example. Love them!
I have bough two sizes of this – faithful to the example, heavy. I love these! You will not be disappointed. This shop is maybe my favorite place to accessorize my garb. Everything is quality here and the shop is responsive and quick to ship!
These are beautiful mjolnirs. I bought a bronze for my son and silver for my daughter. The 'very small' size is perfect for toddlers.
I did notice that the shape and thickness of the bronze and silver were slightly different. The bronze cast mjolnir is thinner and more rounded than the silver cast. I do not have a problem with this, I only mention so future buyers are aware.
Shipping was lightning fast. Glad to see they are not using the coof as an excuse to let orders sit like some other businesses.
Thank you for such excellent charms!
I have many items from this shop as well as from his independent online store outside of Etsy. Every item I have ever ordered has been made with impeccable attention to detail and is of the utmost quality. This shop is my absolute favorite Etsy shop. I HIGHLY recommend it, especially to anyone interested in authentically reproduced Norse replica pieces. You won’t find better.
This Mjolnir is a size small and it’s perfect for everyday wear. Here I am rocking it at work.
