Ullr / Vegvisir Bronze and Leather Necklace

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."
—Prose Edda
Within the winter skiing community of Europe the Old Norse god Ullr is considered the Guardian Patron Saint of Skiers. An Ullr medallion or Ullr ski medal, depicting the Scandinavian god Ullr on skis holding a bow and arrow, is widely worn as a talisman by both recreational and professional skiers as well as ski patrols in Europe and elsewhere.

The Vegvísir, or Norse compass, is an Icelandic magical stave, which, according to the Huld manuscript, protects one from losing their way in bad weather.

Encircling the Vegvísir is the runic transliteration of the Icelandic phrase, "Ég stoppar ekki Þegar Þreyttur, ég stoppar Þegar ég er búinn", which translates to, "I do not stop when tired, I stop when done."

This Ullr/Vegvísir Necklace from the world of Norse mythology is struck from solid bronze, measures 3.3 cm in diameter, and weighs about 12 grams. Includes a 30" leather cord. Coin artwork by Woody Maringer.

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.

Whether or not ULLR is indeed the God Of Snow,he is much revered by skiers and is always depicted on skis and with a bow. This medallion is the perfect gift for any winter sports enthusiast. It’s beautifully crafted,has exquisite detail and nice heft to it. I gave it to my son to wear while skiing and he hasn’t taken it off. Very beautiful piece of work. As always, great communication when needed and lightning quick turnaround.
