THE MJÖLNIR CUFF
This Cuff is based upon Mjölnir (from the Old Norse, pronounced “MIOL-neer”), a powerful and ancient hammer wielded by the Norse god of thunder, Thor. As the son of Odin the Allfather, Thor wielded his hammer in the manipulation of the heavens as well as the protection of humankind. Due to its power to convey the blessing of the Gods, Mjölnir was adopted by ancient Norse people as a tool of social “forging”: the use of a hammer to honor the marriage of a couple is well-documented in Viking society. Dating to at least the 9th century, Mjölnir was worn by Viking raiders and the people they conquered as a symbol of protection. Pendants featuring variations of the sacred hammer have been found throughout territories within the Viking world, including Scotland.
Of all symbols in the pantheon of Norse mythology, Mjölnir is probably the best known today. Associated with a heady mixture of chaos and consecration, battle and blessing, Mjölnir is a veritable linch-pin between the world of man and the celestial cosmos of the Gods of Asgard.
This is the Mjölnir Leather Cuff. It features Thor’s Hammer embossed on the leather and surrounded by Celtic knot work to create a beautiful leather band. This cuff is a one size fits all bracelet with buckles and has five holes for sizing at 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, and 9 inches. You can just clip off any excess length with kitchen shears. Measurements are 3 inches wide by 7-9 inches long. If you need a different size than what is available, please email me.
