I was thrilled when the first Thor film was released in 2011 and really enjoyed it! With a sequel Thor: A Dark World on the way, what better way to get ready for the Lighting God’s return than to own a Thor Hammer necklace?
Based on the god of Norse mythology, Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir is a weapon of honor and virtue. “Mjölnir” is usually interpreted with two meanings “That which smashes”, and “lightning”.
In the comics, Mjölnir has many magic properties. It can be hurled incredible distances and then boomerang back into Thor’s hand. Thor can fly when holding it just by throwing it as hard as he can without letting go of the handle. It can control all the powers of a storm, including rain, thunder, and lightning. Upon the side of Mjölnir is an inscription: “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.”
This Thor Hammer necklace is inspired by both the Thor film and its comics. Using the shape of Thor’s hammer in the film, the inscription from the comics is hand stamped upon the side of the hammer.
Each hammer’s inscription is handstamped so please allow for slight variation in depth. The pendant is made out of zinc alloy. It measures 5cm long and 2cm wide. and comes with a 16″ silver-plated chain.
Thor: A Dark World is set for release in November 2013. I can’t wait!
