This hammer, called in Norse mythology Mjölnir is wielded by the god Thor. This is made in sterling silver and is a reproduction of a well known pendant. It is the same motif on both sides and is 1 1/2 inch long.
Mjölnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains. Miniature Thor's hammers were widely used as religious amulets during the Viking era. People at that time probably wore the pendants to give them strength and protection from Thor (remember that Thor is the protector of humans). People would wear both wooden and metal Mjölnir pendants, often along with other necklaces as well. At the end of the era, it wasn't unusual to wear both the Christian cross and a Thors Hammer at the same time. For modern day Wiccans and Pagans, the meaning and purpose of wearing a Thors hammer is pretty much the same. It provides protection, strength and power to the bearer

Most of my items don't have tracking unless to the USA, but those that do will have it written on the listing, such as my custom gold jewellery, bracelets and such. But If you order and you decide you want an upgrade, message me and I'll tell you what the difference is and how to send the balance for it.

Yes I do, and usually it's 1-2 months to do depending on the time of the year and if I already have orders on my plate. I do try to keep you up to date on the progress and send photos. So ask away! Also note I don't take custom orders during the holiday season due to work overload!

All the items I make are made in solid metal, not plated. The sterling silver, or .925 silver as some know it as, is 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper which is the classic sterling silver. No rhodium or nickle plating! The antique bronze is the classic bronze that the bronze age was named for. It contains 90% copper and 10% tin. I also offer to make jewellery in stainless steel or gold on special order and are made to order only.
Sadly no. The cost of sterling silver and bronze chains would end up raising the price of my jewellery, so in stead I sell them separately on my shop section for chains and engraving.
The antique bronze contains 90% copper and 10% tin. The bronze can turn your skin green due to the oxidization caused by the copper to the salt and sweat of your skin, but can be easily rectified with either clear enamel or the classic clear nail polish trick! As for cleaning, use liquid silver cleaner and a jewellers polishing cloth to make it shiny and new again.
I use ChitCats Express for most of my shipping as well as Canada Post, and the prices are based on their prices. They are a courier company that uses USPS, so is cheaper than Canda Post. I rather not use other courier companies like FedEx our UPS because they charge the buyer a brokerage fee on top of duty and that sucks all around! If you would rather use them, let me know and I'll create a custom listing for you.
Because of the copper content in the bronze, it will naturally develop a patina over time. The tarnish, or patina, is caused by a chemical reaction between the various metals in the alloy, and acids or other corrosive materials. Acids in the skin can cause uneven tarnish from contact with your skin. If you want to prevent tarnish, keep your bronze item stored in an area with low humidity and protected from dust and other corrosives and chemicals, like hand cream and house cleaning products. If you are storing the item, make sure it's dry and wrap it in plastic or put it in a plastic bag; the more airtight the better. Bronze can be varnished or lacquered, but this will have to be reapplied over time.
No, as they are custom made per order of the customer request and not a stock item, I cannot accept returns on gold jewellery.

Purchased two pendants from this Etsy shop and have been wearing both together on a chain I already had. Am really enjoying the pendants and have gotten remarks on them. I'm Scandinavian, so I had certain expectations of the quality and workmanship. Well made, not cheap-looking. Finely detailed. Fast and safe ship. Would return again to this Etsy seller. Thank you!
