Silver Thor's Hammer Pendant. Mjölnir
Thor's hammer crafted in Sterling silver using traditional Viking jewelry making techniques
“By the hammer and hand all arts do stand.”
In Norse mythology and Legend , Mjölnir (In the Old Norse language: Mjǫllnir, pronounced: [ˈmjɔlːnir]) is the hammer of Thor, a major Norse god associated with thunder.
Mjölnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains.
In his account of Norse mythology, Snorri Sturluson relates how the hammer was made by the dwarven brothers Sindri and Brokkr, and how its characteristically short handle was due to a mishap during its manufacture. Similar hammers were a common symbol of the god of thunder in other North European mythologies.
