Viking culture is so full of symbolism that it can be difficult to choose the ideal symbol for you.
This striking silver pendant mixes several of the most potent Viking themes.
The pendant itself is in the shape of Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. This was the most common amulet worn by the Vikings themselves.
It is a potent symbol of protection, as Thor wielded his hammer to protect Asgard and Midgard from the Jotun.
The handle of the hammer takes the form of the face of Odin, the all-father. He is the god of both war and wisdom, and the most important god in the Viking pantheon.
Below him sit two wolves, their bodies elongated and intertwined in classic Viking artistic style.
These are the wolf companions of Odin, Geri (ravenous) and Freki (greedy). This is a reminder that we must also carry our more challenging attributes with us, and they are part of who we are.
They are also a reference to Fenrir, the mighty wolf that is destined to devour Odin during the Ragnarok apocalypse. This points to the inescapability of fate.
This classic Norse amulet mixes a variety of Norse mythological themes to create a unique piece that celebrates many of the aspects of Viking belief.
