Maintenance: Taking off the bracelet before showering or swimming is recommended. However, getting it wet occasionally does not damage it. Polishing is normally not required but the pewter/silver can be polished with a dry silver polish cloth if desired. The bracelet can be washed with a mild detergent and water if dirty. The spun pewter wire will flatten down and take on a silver-like shiny patina if bracelet is worn often.

Materials: The stunning Sami Jewelry has been handmade of soft vegetable-tanned reindeer leather or top grade lamb skin (only a few colors). The button is handmade of shed reindeer antler. We also offer a handmade one-of-a-kind 99.9% silver button. Swedish reindeer are domesticated and shed their antlers anually. The nickel-free pewter wire is an alloy with 4% silver, spun around a strong synthetic sinew thread. It has a spectacular sparkle in sunlight.

Some braid styles are made with enameled colored copper wires, pearl silk thread, sterling silver, 14K gold, and glass beads, Swarovski crystals, and leather cords - always mixed with spun pewter wires.

History: SwedArt’s™ aboriginal Sami artisans reside near the Arctic Circle in northern Sweden. Sami People with a 10,000 year old history live in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and the Kola Peninsula in Russia and lived on the land before the rest of the Scandinavians arrived. There are 17,000 Sami (formerly called Laplanders) in Sweden today. Approximately 3,000 own herds, sometimes with thousands of domesticated reindeer (caribou), and reindeer husbandry is their livelihood. Only Sami can own reindeer in Sweden so we support the small indigenous Sami People by buying products made of traditional Sami materials like reindeer leather and reindeer antler. Their unique craft items are admired and sought after worldwide.

Sami embroidery with pewter wire on reindeer leather and fabric has been done for hundreds of years in the Sami culture, and Sami actually invented the spun pewter wire. In the old days, they melted tin to make the wire and then spun it around reindeer sinew entirely by hand. Today, the wires are spun on a small machine.
