This hair or beard bead is cast into the shape of Mjolnir, the legendary hammer of Thor. It has a crossed design on the handle of the hammer, and a rune on the head.
Thor's Hammer, also known as Mjölnir is the legendary and fearsome weapon of Thor the Norse god of thunder and lightening, and the protector of mankind. The hammer was made by the Dwarven brothers Eitri and Brokkr.
The rune is one of the Elder Futhark runes, specifically, this rune is called Tiwaz, it is a warrior rune named after Tyr, the northern god of justice. Tyr is a one-handed god with a long history, and his hand was sacrificed to trick the wolf, Fenrir, 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)
