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 or Raven 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, Denmark. It is a prayer to Thor that reads; “May Thor protect you with that hammer”.

Hand etched curved stainless steel pendant hangs with a stainless jump ring on a stainless Cable chain with stainless lobster claw clasp. 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.

Frequently asked questions about TigersandDragons

☀Stainless Steel - To protect the black patina and wax coating on the cord, remove all jewellery before swimming, showering, and similar activities.Long term exposure to moisture can affect jewellery.

☀Brass - Avoid exposure to hairspray, water &soap. Brass will darken over time and look more antique. Dab a tiny amount of vinegar on a cloth and wipe the brass to make it golden and shiny again. A jewellery polishing cloth also works well for polishing brass.

-Pendants can be made flat instead of curved, if you would like to take your piece to be engraved by a business in your area.

- CORDS: Adjustable sliding knot waxed cotton cord (maximum extension 29") can be made longer. Or if you prefer a shorter set length with a clasp 16", 18", etc... Tell us the length & we will add coil ends & spring ring clasp.
NO. Since we are in Canada, we are not registered for VAT, and so this tax is not included in our prices. If any of our listings or shipping rates state "VAT included (where applicable)", this is because Etsy's programmers have recently added this to their web-shop platform. Unfortunately this is misleading and incorrect, but we are unable to remove it from our listings.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on this issue. Our shop has been open since 2009 and we have received very positive reviews from our European customers.
