Thors Hammer Mjolnir Pendant
This pendant is connected with the pagan religion of the Scandanavians. Thor was the mightiest god, waging war against the giants whom he killed with his hammer. At the same time he was god of the home, hallowing marriage and purifying funerals with his hammer. This amulet was originally made in silver and was found in Sweden.
The venerable alloy of pewter is made of 92% tin with copper and antimony to harden it and enhance casting. At St Justin the distinguished tradition of casting pewter lives on. High quality pewter ingots are fused in a crucible and the molten metal is poured into rubber moulds created from the original master design.
After cooling and linishing, the items are hand-polished and assembled by craftsmen.
