The hammer of Thor is known as Mjölnir, meaning "Crusher" or "Destroyer", a weapon capable of smashing mountains. Forged for the Thunder God by the dwarves Brok and Sindri, this fearsome weapon never missed Thor's intended target and always returned to his hand. Thor could adjust it's size so that it could be carried inside his tunic, medieval Scandinavians wore small replicas as pendants as early as the 9th century.

This design is based on an Eagle-headed pendant found in a 10th century Viking grave in Skåne, Sweden. The runes are part of the inscription from an 11th century amulet found in Kvinneby, Sweden that read “May Thor protect you with that hammer”.

Hand etched curved stainless steel pendant hangs on a 21.5" Stainless Steel Cable chain and stainless steel jump-ring. The electro etching process sometimes creates a pebbled texture which resembles ancient artifacts recovered from the earth. Unlike most metals Stainless Steel will NOT tarnish, corrode, rust, or turn your skin green. It is the most durable metal.

ECO-FRIENDLY ETCHING
Our steel has been etched with an eco-friendly process which does not use any acid or other toxic chemicals. Salt water will naturally etch stainless steel over a long time, we have sped up the process by using a few volts of electricity. No toxic fumes, hydrogen and oxygen are released into the air. Galvanic or electrolytic etching was originally developed by printmakers in the mid 1800's as a non-toxic process for etching their printing plates.

JEWELLERY CONSTRUCTION
Each jewellery piece is HAND MADE by us from beginning to end. We apply a resist on a sheet of stainless steel, electro etch, saw by hand, file, and polish. A black patina is applied to the recessed areas to enhance the pattern. Many pieces are curved using a hammer and block. The electro etching process can impart a pebbled texture, which we feel only enhances the hand crafted quality of our work.
