Material: Sterling Silver – approximately .6 oz.
Size: This Mjolnir is 1.75 inches high (including the ring) just over 1.5 inches tall without the ring.
All of the linework, knotwork, and stippled dots/filigree work is hand placed by silversmiths in Sweden. Creating an item like this can take up to a week!
This famous depiction of Mjolnir (Thor’s Hammer) is meticulously handmade with .4 oz. of silver and is decorated with interlaced knotwork. The original finding is from Skåne Sweden. The face is likely a depiction of Thor himself!
More about 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.
