The Sami nomadic tribes in the north of Scandinavia have a rich and ancient native culture. Reindeer breeding and living in a cold but yet beautiful and mysterious nature are parts of their traditions. The Sami handicraft, The Duodji, is well known for it’s beautiful ethnic style with strong colours in weaved ribbons and also embroideries and jewelry made of spun silver/pewter wire.
Our Sami bracelets are made in the traditional Duodji way. On a bottom of reindeer leather, braids of spun pewter/silver wire (on the left). The embroidered items often have a bottom of locally made boiled wool (on the right). The pearls used for certain items are either silver pearls or Swarowski coloured pearls.
The wire of pewter contains 4% of silver, which gives the shiny patina to your bracelet after a year or two. Keeping your bracelet out of water will allow you to keep it for a very long time.
