Mammen Mjolnir Pendant

  • £30.00
Design

Sean Parry of Sacred Knot Tattoo was inspired to design this pendant based on historical representations of Thor's hammer that are found within Viking Age archaeology.

Mjolnir amulets seem to have been quite popular amongst the peoples of the Viking Age, based on the frequency with which these pendants have been discovered in grave finds. It's possible that the popularity it harbours today (as a frequently chosen emblem by many members of the neo-Nordic community) rivals that of those within the Viking Age.

This piece was photographed by the incredible Jay Massie, one of the Northern Fire artists whose prints you can purchase on the site. 

  

Material & Make

Each piece of jewellery has been polished to a shining finish by a Northern Fire artisan in our workshop in Wales, where we also craft our moulds and hand cast each piece. Our pewter is sourced from Cornwall and has been chosen for its flexibility and shine.

This pendant comes on an adjustable cotton cord.
