Based on a hammer amulet found in Läby parish near Uppsala, Uppland, Sweden held by the Swedish History Museum. This was originally hand carved in wax and sand cast by hand and heavily worked with a mixture of hand tools such as piercing saw, snips and files and power tools. We also have an option to attach a loop like the original artefact.
Please note, you are buying a handmade piece of jewellery and we will not always have it in stock and I may require some time to make it!
If you want this in other materials such as gold please email me for a quote at email@example.com We are always open to alter and change any of our pieces to suit your tastes. In the listing the piece might look darker than the finished piece. We artificially darken our silver pieces with liver of sulfur so that the details will show up in photographs but as standard the finished piece will be shiny and polished. If you'd prefer us to darken it then please let us know and we will happily do this for you.
This has been carved by myself from wax, sand cast in my home workshop and finished with a mixture of power tools and traditional hand tools like files and saws. Available with a free choice of waxed cotton or leather cord. We also have a seperate listing with silver chains here if you desire: https://caledonianforge.com/products/sterling-silver-chain?utm_source=copyToPasteBoard&utm_medium=product-links&utm_content=web
All our packaging is 100% paper. No plastic at all.
Due to the weight of this piece in any solid (not plated) precious metal by law it must be hallmarked. This will take roughly an additional 2-4 weeks.
