These Sami style bracelets are handmade in the tradition of my ancestors. I use natural reindeer leather and tin thread to make the bracelet to your custom size and colour. The Sami bracelet is attached with a reindeer antler button. The bracelets are made using a simple yet classic design that is suitable for men and women of all ages.
Tin thread was known as the poor man’s silver. The Saami would melt down pewter or tin plates and spin the metal into a fine thread which they used to make jewellery and decorate their clothing and other items. Embroidered Pewter thread reminds me of the shimmers of moonlight reflected on the midnight snow. The Saami have many ways to describe snow and winter conditions. I have used some of these Sami words to name my tin thread embroidered pieces.

I order all of my supplies from Sami craftsmen in Sweden and Finland.
For a perfect fit, please measure the size of your wrist and add 1 cm allowance so that the Sami bracelet fits loosely but comfortably on your arm.
Leather does not like to get wet, so please take your bracelet off if swimming or in the shower.
