Mjöllnir pendants

Inläggav czcibor » 9 januari 2006, 23:06

Hello,
this is my post here, unfortunately I'm unable to speak or understand your language, therefore it can't search this forum for the info i'm looking for. Due to the lack of material on this subject (books) in Poland (that's where i come from) I'm asking You for help. I want to recreate a Mjöllnir pendant, and I'm having problems with finding either pictures/drawings of either original excavations or recreated and sold as jewelery.
So far i found these (above the picture is listed the place it was found):
Hesselbjerg, Denmark
Bild
Vatnsdalur, Iceland
Bild
Herrestad, County of Skåne, Sweden
Bild
Halmstad, Sweden
Bild
Stenby, county of Motala, Sweden
Bild
Fosse, Iceland
Bild
Odeshog, Ostergotlamd, Sweden
Bild
Bornholm
Bild
Kabara, Scania.
Bild
Hiddensee, Germany
Bild
Copenhagen museum
Bild
Vaalse, Dania.
Bild
Muzeum w Smaalandii.
Bild
Bredsatra, Sweden
Bild
Vaalse
Bild
Mickels, När parish
Bild
Gärdslöv, Assartorp, Sweden
Bild
Norfolk
Bild.
So far that's all i found. Little especially that according to the information I found, around 120 mjollnir pendants were excavated.

I'm asking You to help me. Post here, or mail me: czcibor@mjollnir.pl if You can all the drawings/pictures of mjollnir pendants You know. I'm only interested in historical correct mjollnir's, no fantasy.

Maybe You have any idea form where do these come from? Since I found them in many places on the net, except no where was it said where they come from or are they fake.

Ragweed Forge, an American site, sells reproductions of some of the hammers you have pictures of here. The URL is: http://www.ragweedforge.com/

This subpage has all of his Thor's hammers:

Good luck!

Hmm...i believe the pendant from Fosse, Iceland is rather a cross than a Thor's hammer.

Satanists have proudly been wearing Peter's crosses for years, thanks to modern cinema. That, and of course the fact that they are typically not all that clever and/or well read.

about Fosse hammer:
actually it is a thor's hammer, with a cross cut off inside, probably a later addition. Even in the museum in Iceland it is signed as a Thor's hammer.

With best regards,

Hello

The page has now changed from www.nordicarts.com to www.nordicarts.co.uk.

The site will be relaunched later this year at www.nordic-gift.com and will feature existing Viking Jewelry including Thor's Hammer pendant and earrings, plus much more.
