I have wanted a thor’s hammer pendant for a while now. I am pretty big on jewelry first of all. I just like it. Watches, leather bracelets, my own necklaces, etc. And I always kind of thought that thor’s hammer pendants looked kinda cool. That and they symbolize strength and courage blah blah I just thought they looked good. So I figure I want it to last and I buy a sterling silver one. Problem is that it’s the size of my stupid THUMBNAIL. I tend to like my pendants a little oversized so this is unacceptable. And so I just decided I am going to make me a thor’s hammer out of wood. Or possibly stone. Maybe even brass. haha. I have worked with all three before anyway. Ill start with wood though. I haven’t decided what wood to use yet or if I want a lamination of a few. I considered snakewood but that could be expensive and difficult. But it would be strong. I’ll figure that part out. A little lignum Vitae may be in order. Any ideas? I want to keep the shape pretty simple I think. Im a fan of letting the wood do the talking. Thoughts anyone?
