Bronze Gungnir (Odin's Spear) Hook Bracelet

  • Sale
  • Regular price £46.95


Gungnir it the name of Odin's mighty spear. Scandinavian art often depicts Odin with a spear. Such depictions are found from Viking Age runestones all the way to Bronze age rock carvings of a spear god, who may well be Odin.

Same as the Hammer of Thor, Gungnir was forged by dwarves and Gungnir is no ordinary spear. Odin is said to have sacrificed himself to discover the runes by simultaneously stabbing himself with Gungnir and hanging himself. It’s fitting, therefore, that when the Norse sacrificed someone to Odin, whether a single individual or a large group of people, they typically did so by means of a spear, either by itself or in combination with hanging.

The Gungnir is made from Bronze and is also the clasp for the thick brown braided leather hook bracelet. On one side, the Valknut is carved and as per the stories depicting Gungnir, it has runes on the other side.

Can be worn as a hook bracelet or as a tight pendant/choker. Made to order items are non-refundable and not eligible for exchange so please check size carefully before placing the order.
