What does this jewelry represent?
The most popular piece of jewelry worn by the Vikings themselves were Mjolnir amulets, representing Thor's hammer.
In fact, they were one of the few Viking symbols that continued to be used well into the Christian period.
Mjolnir was a potent symbol of the divine protection of the god.
This finely made bronze Mjolnir pendant is styled from authentic examples from the Viking era.
The handle of the axe takes the form of a raven's head.
Ravens were the familiars of Odin, the chief Viking god and the god of was and wisdom.
With this type of amulet, a Viking was able to carry the favor of both Thor and Odin with them wherever they went.
