Level: All Levels
Explore the traditional jewelry techniques of the indigenous people of Scandinavia (Saami or Laplanders), which include braiding coiled pewter wire and sewing the finished braid to a softened reindeer hide strip. A faux antler button finishes off the bracelet. Traditional Saami jewelry incorporated elements of their northern landscape – reindeer leather and sculpted antler. Your finished bracelet is lightweight to wear and perfect for any outfit from casual to dressy.
If you can do a simple braid and simple sewing stitches, you can make this bracelet. You will be able to choose black, brown, grey or teal leather.
Use of tools and all supplies (pewter wire, leather, needle, thread, button, etc) are included in the workshop fee. Feel free to bring a lunch and/or snacks.
