This solid pewter pendant is Gungnir, the spear of the Norse god Odin. Odin's followers wear this pendant for protection. The shaft is decorated with knotwork in a Manx style ring chain. Gungnir was the finest spear in the cosmos, handcrafted by the Dwarves, and is a symbol of the power and authority of lordship. Also in the Norse Sagas, Odin sacrificed himself by simultaneously stabbing himself with Gungnir and hanging himself to discover Runes.
