Thor Godmask Mjölnir Pendant
Colin Dale of Skin & Bone Tattoo designed this Mjölnir pendant to feature a godmask of the thunder god, Thor.
Hammer shaped pendants are found more often than any other jewelry design in graves from the Viking Age. Historians and archaeologists tend to attribute Thor's great popularity during this time to the idea that he was a god for the people, a warrior and a protector. Godmasks of the Aesir and Vanir can be found carved into stone, wood, and metal from the Viking Age. It only makes sense to combine these common motifs together to create a godmask hammer.
On the back of this pendant, you'll also find a sigil reminiscent of the sunwheel (suncross) used in Colin Dale's emblem, which was inspired by the symbols found in the Nordic Bronze Age.
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.
