Vegvisir is a Norse runic symbol called the Viking Compass. Translated from Icelandic it means "SEE THE WAY". Its purpose is to guide the wearer safely through storm and fog, to always find the way back home.
A wonderful gift for both men and women, we have shipped this pendant around the world to protect many a traveller.

Hand etched curved stainless steel pendant hangs with a stainless jump ring on a 21.5" stainless Cable chain with stainless lobster claw clasp. The electro etching process can create 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, our pendants are light but strong.

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.
