Thor inspired look with Mjolnir necklace from Level Up Crafts

Don't get me wrong, I love a good geek logo or symbol on some of my apparel but my favorite geek chic items are those that are subtle. Kudos to designers who create items that require a double take to figure out their origin fandom. My friend April over at Level Up Crafts gifted me this adorable Mjolnir inspired necklace or "Mew Mew" as Thor film fans may know it by.

The necklace is strung on a copper color chain which is appropriate. I think of brushed metals in muted tones for Viking jewelry. The hammer portion has specs of glitter in it and the handle is painted to mimic a real, leather wrapped hilt. Nice detailing April!

I took inspiration from the Icelandic wilderness and forests of Valhalla for this woodsy, earthy outfit.

April takes such care into each and every item she makes. She's shown me her work space and she's even made a bunch of custom molds for her resin pieces, the hammer included!. Her layering ability and attention to detail is superb. You know you're getting a thoughtfully, well-made piece when purchasing. Make sure to like Level Up Crafts on Facebook and Etsy. Thanks April!
