Gotland Mjolnir in Bronze or Stelring Silver

Gotland Mjolnir in Bronze or Stelring Silver

(11 customer reviews)

Materials: Solid sterling silver (cast by lost wax technique), leather cord.

Sizes:

Very Small – 17-18mm by 16mm

Small – 27mm by 21 mm

Medium – 33 mm by 28mm

Large – 50 mm by 39 mm

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.

    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.
