This Kalevala jewelry collection draws inspiration from the Viking mythological character, Thor. Thor is the god of thunder and the supreme creator. Thunder was supposed to be the sound of his moving chariot across the heavens. Thor wielded a hammer which represented a powerful thunderbolt. If thrown, the hammer would return to him like a boomerang. The pendant depicting the hammer became known as the symbol for Thor and it was believed to protect its carrier from evil. The fearsome Vikings are known to have worn the pendant. Made in Finland.
