Aegishjalmur is a runic symbol for protection. Also called the "Helm of Awe" it raises fear in your enemies while protecting you from them. The Vikings wore this most powerful rune for invincibility in battle.

Hand etched curved stainless steel pendant hangs on an adjustable waxed cotton cord with sliding knots so you can adjust it to suit your neckline from choker to full length. The electro etching process creates a pebbled texture which resembles ancient artifacts recovered from the earth. But unlike most metals Stainless Steel will NOT tarnish, corrode, rust, or turn your skin green. It is the most durable metal.

*A card with the description of the symbol is included with purchase.
**The first two photos are representative of the pendant you will receive. The pebbled texture varies on each handcrafted pendant.

If you'd like a longer adjustable cord, let us know. Or if you would prefer a set length, such as 16", 18", etc. just send us a convo. and we will add metal crimps and a spring ring clasp.

SIZE: 1" x 1 3/16" or 2.5cm x 3.1 cm
CORD LENGTH: Adjustable, maximum 29"

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.

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 imparts a pebbled texture, which we feel only enhances the hand crafted quality of our work.
