Sami jewelery

I figured I'd start a blog to share one of my major interests with the world, the making of Sami bracelets and jewelery. My idea is to down the line not only show off my works but to also teach you how to make your own braids and bracelets. But I'll start slow =)

The making of Sami bracelets are a beautiful tradition from the Norths of Sweden where the Sami people still live today with their caribous (reindeer). These bracelets are inspired from such ancient crafts, made with peweter and silver or copper threads, from caribou and lambskin with antler buttons - but spiced up a bit to fit today's fashion and ideals.
