This is a handmade heavy stainless steel chain with Tyr rune ends holding the loop. The chain is a Kings Chain design and the clasp is hidden by making use of the clasp.
Tiwaz is a warrior rune named after the god Tyr who is the Northern god of law and justice. Tyr is related to the north star in the Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem, around which the fixed stars in the night sky appear to rotate. This symbolises the positive ordering of the cosmos and humankind through law and justice and our moral compass.
Tyr is a one-handed god with a long history, and his hand was sacrificed to trick the wolf, Fenris, into being chained. Tiwaz is just victory according to the law of accumulated right past action. To rule justly, one is asked to make many self-sacrifices, and Tiwaz can develop the power of positive self-sacrifice and temper over-sacrifice. The belief that courage and a right cause carries the day is governed by Tiwaz. It is the common justice of the people rather than the use of law by tyrants (a word that uses Tyr as a root)
The chain loop is cleverly designed to open easily when needed but secure so as to not open by mistake when on.
