Material: Cow Horn or Cow Bone, leather cord
Size: 45mm tall by 29mm wide and 6mm thick.
This Thor’s hammer, (Mjölnir) pendant is hand crafted in cow horn or bone.
Each piece is unique due to the natural properties of the material and the creation process!
The bone pendants come with ancient symbols of cup-and-ring marks, or concentric circles and dots (see photos).
These symbols date back to prehistory and appear widespread in ancient European rock art – from stone megaliths and petroglyphs to wood and bone carvings in the Viking age. Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, France, England, Greece, and Italy all have cup and ring mark artwork that spans the timeframe of thousands of years!
Please feel free to message me with any questions and indicate if you would like a brown or black leather cord with the purchase. (If you do not indicate, I will choose for you!) Thanks!
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.
