Sun Ship – handmade solid silver pendant


Handmade solid silver pendant.

Ship motifs are common in Scandinavian Bronze Age discoveries, appearing in rock art, bronze artifacts, and monuments. Despite regional differences, the common use of ship symbols goes beyond mere representation, carrying deep symbolic meaning.

During the Bronze Age, maritime trade was indispensable for procuring copper and tin necessary for bronze production. Consequently, boats became emblematic of political power and the ability to access bronze resources.

In Bronze Age rock carvings, ships often bear sun wheels, symbolizing not only the daily cycle of the sun but also a cosmological connection to its annual renewal. And so does the ship in this pendant I’ve based on a petroglyph found in Madsebakke, Bornholm, Denmark.

This pendant is handcasted from recycled 925 silver with the sandcasting method, so each item is unique. The pendant is blackened to create contrast and to let the details pop. Please note that due to its handmade nature, the pendant you’ll receive might slightly differ from the one showed on the pictures in this listing.

You can choose between a dark brown or black leather cord (1.5 mm thick)  or a black cotton cord (1mm thick).
Standard adjustable cord length is 70 cm. Do you want a longer or shorter cord with your pendant? Just let me know!

All orders are shipped with tracking, in a mailbox package that fits through almost every mailbox.
