Ullr / Vegvisir Brass Zipper Pull
Brings Luck in Skiing and Archery
"...Ullr, Sif's son and Thór's stepson, is one, too. He is such a good archer and ski-runner that no one can rival him."Ullr, pronounced "oo-ler", is the Norse god of skiing and archery. Depicting Ullr on skis and holding a bow and arrow, this brass pendant is widely worn as a talisman by both recreational and professional skiers and ski patrols in Europe and elsewhere. The pendant can be used as a necklace, zipper pull, or as a good luck charm for those venturing into the snow.
This Ullr Zipper Pull from the world of Norse mythology is struck from solid brass, measures 2.1 cm in diameter, and weighs about 4.1 grams.
The product is treated to look as if it has been handled and circulated. This process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science, coloring and patinas will vary. No two are exactly the same! Coins are struck one at a time in the USA using antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. A colorful description is included with history and facts about the coin.

I was going to use these for zipper pulls, but they would not fit (zippers too big) and I dang near destroyed my own digits trying to make them.
So I improvised.
I now wear one as an amulet of sorts on a piece of leather lacing. Just to give a head's up, I have a wickedly sensitive metal (nickel) allergy, which takes about 24 hours to kick in. So far, things are looking fantastic.
And I've so many ideas for gift-giving.
Great Way to Carry a little luck around. I wish there had been a way to attach them included in the envelopes, but I can make due.
worked withy me to get exactly what i wanted
I could not be more pleased with the zipper pulls I ordered. They are high quality and look fantastic. I gave them to family after returning from the Ullr festival and everyone was thrilled. Also, items shipped almost immediately upon my hitting the order button!
Incredibly fast shipping and the medallion is perfect. This was a gift for my son, who's dog is named Ullr. We also both have Vegvisir tattoos as well. So ShirePostMint is batting a thousand.
