What does this jewelry represent ?
Jormungandr, also known as the Midgard Serpent, was one of the most fearsome monsters in Norse mythology.
A son of the trickster Loki and the giantess Angrboda, the gods of Asgard so feared the potential chaos that could be wrought by the serpent that they threw him into the waters surrounding Midgard, the world of men.
There, Jormungandr grew to such a great size that he could encircle the entire world and hold his own tail in his mouth.
According to the prophecy of Ragnarok, the end of the Norse world, when Jormungandr drops his tail and enters the ultimate battle, the end of the world is nigh.
It is prophesised that Thor will kill Jormungandr, but not before the serpent spews so much poison onto the god that he himself dies.
He will also spew his poison into the air of the nine worlds, killing them.
For the Vikings, Jormungandr was a symbol of the chaos and unpredictability of life, but also the inevitability of fate.
This is not something that the Vikings feared, it is something that they accepted and embraced, giving them the strength to encounter every situation with courage.
This stunning sterling silver bracelet is both a unique Viking design, and a potent symbol of the unpredictability of life.
