Love and fertility symbols

In Nordic mythology, the individual figures symbolize the themes of human life. As in many other cults, fertility rites played an important role. For this reason, the cults around the gods of love and fertility are also central.

The goddess Freya is the most popular figure who, besides fertility, also stands for marriage, spring and happiness. Similar qualities are attributed to her brother Freyr. Among other things he rules over rain and sunshine and the growth of the earth. He should be called upon for peace. He married the beautiful Gerd or Gerda (daughter of the giant Gymir), who takes him only after a long time of advertising to the man.

An extraordinary sign

The pendant thematizes ancient stories about love. The beautiful and discreet presentation is both archaic and timeless. The stylized figures are depicted in an intimate embrace. As a sign of deep love, this pendant is the ideal gift for the beloved person. It looks as noble as it is discreet.

Historical manufacturing process

The lost wax process, also known as the 'lost form' process, has been known for thousands of years. Metal objects have been produced in this way all over the world. First a model is formed from wax, which is then closed to a casting mould. After one opening for pouring in and several for venting are brought in, a separating layer is now brought in.

The wax is liquefied by heat and thus removed from the mould. Now a negative mould of the object exists. Then the liquefied metal can be poured into the mould. Only one metal casting is possible per wax model, which is why this process has always been used for particularly valuable and unique pieces.

A manifesto of eternal love

This pendant symbolizes your love in a wonderful and timeless way. The historical symbolism of Freya has been popular for centuries, because it unites love and hope for the fertile spring.
