This hair or beard bead is cast into the shape of Thor's Hammer, Mjölnir which is the legendary and fearsome weapon of the Norse god of thunder and lightening, and the protector of mankind. This listing is only for the Mjolnir bead.
This bead is made from the finest grade of English Pewter. English Pewter is the finest grade of pewter, (to BS EN 611-1:1995 standard). Traditionally, pewter was a mixture of lead and tin, but today, English Pewter is a rich, high-grade alloy of 92% tin with copper, (plus a few legitimate trace elements), and is regarded as a 'semi-precious' metal valued second only to silver. For jewellery and accessories this is the safest tin-based alloy in use and is fully lead, cadmium & nickel compliant to California Proposition 65 for total lead & cadmium content, Commission Regulation (EU) 494/2011(REACH) for lead & cadmium and European standard BS EN 1811:2011 for nickel. English Pewter is very much harder to craft than zinc alloys and the old and primitive forms of pewter.
Also available in a set of 3 at a special price. Check out the bead section for more details!
