Saami Friendship BraceletClothing & JewelryLiz Bucheit
The serene and dramatic landscape of northern Scandinavia is the land of the midnight sun, the northern lights and the Saami, a nomadic tribal group that follows the migration of the reindeer. Traditional Saami jewelry incorporated elements of their northern landscape – softened reindeer leather and sculpted antler. In this course you’ll explore the traditional jewelry techniques of triple braiding coiled pewter wire and sewing the finished braid to a softened reindeer hide strip. A reindeer antler button finishes off the bracelet. Materials fee will be collected by instructor.
