MJOLNIR - THOR'S HAMMER PENDANT by MassoGeppetto MJOLNIR - THOR'S HAMMER PENDANT by MassoGeppetto
A Thor's Hammer pendant in pear wood, made with the chipcarving technique . The shape of this Mjolnir is tradititional, while the design of the carving in made by me :-) The finishing has been made with neutral wax, with an addition of bitumen to sligthly darken the wood. It is a huge pendant (7,5 cm long) made for an American client, so if anyone is interested in having an object related to Norse or Celtic Mythology you can contact me by sending me a note. :heart:

Thanks! :-) I don't know if this pendant is for a man or a woman... the pendant is very big (7,5 cm long) and the buyer is a man...maybe he is a cosplayer, I don't know...or maybe he wanted to make a gift to his girlfriend :-) If you are interested I'm available to make another one!

Wow! Can't believe ppl have the patience to carv things like that. It turned out really nice. :) Isn't it very hard to carv in pear wood? I've tried lime tree and some other kinds of wood but never anything as hard as pear. I guess you have to sharpen your tools pretty often, working in something that hard? It's more brittle too, pear wood,  isn't it?

Thanks! Pear wood is not too hard, but you can make very detailed carvings :-) For these works I often use pear wood, apricot tree , boxwood or blackthorn wood, they are all fantastic and not fragile. Lime wood can be ok but is weaker than the others. I make this pendant with only one knife. With the knife, if the wood is hard, you can sharpen the blade not much...while if the wood is soft, you must sharpen the blade more often because you see before the deterioration of the blade in the cutting :-) And also you must choose different angles of sharping depending on the type of wood!
