The shield knot is a protective symbol. This sign of warding is sacred to Thor.
This pendant measures approximately 1 1/8″ (28.5mm) and is cast using the lost wax casting method, then silver brazed to a hand forged sterling silver bale. Bale is made to accept cord or chain up to approximately 1/4″ (6mm) in diameter.
The Cloisonné Enamel is done the old way, not with the epoxy “paint” often found in modern pieces. We cast this pendant then fill the channels with a wet slurry of ground colored glass (a mixture of sand, potash, borax and various metals to add color) and then fired at high temperature to fuse them into the silver.
Some enamel colors may contain red Lead. So.. don’t break it up and eat it.
Necklace or cord not included.
