This design is based on a stone from the 8th century (still viewable in the Kirkby Stephen Parish Church) that depicts Loki bound at the wrists with large curling horn-like shapes protruding from his head. Many can recall from Norse mythology the story of the Aesir and their decision to lock this trickster god away to endure a gruesome fate at the hands of a poisonous serpent. It is thought that this carved stone depicts this tale, and the god of mischief himself.
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 with an adjustable cotton cord.
About The Artist
Gloria Notarangelo, known in her work as Dyrs Hjarta Art, commands attention with her bold linework and traditional methods of dotwork. Her knowledge of Nordic artistry allows her to create imagery based on the historical artifacts she has admired over the years, bringing to life traditional styles and symbolism in order to tell stories through her work. To friends and family she is known as a nurturing plant-lover, though she is most often wielding a tattoo gun as a full-time professional artist with Sacred Knot Tattoo in North Wales. You’ll find handcrafted goods, original paintings, prints, pins, and jewellery by Gloria on Northern Fire.
