Amulet bunch

Silver amulet bunch. The bunch consists of eight small rings, a Thor's hammer pendant and a fire striker-like pendant, as well as two small spiral beads which are set on a large, slightly tangled ring. The larger ring may be thought to symbolise the god Odin's magical ring Draupnir, which every ninth night produced eight new rings. Part of a hoard find, Alunbruket, Södra Möckleby Parish, Öland.
