The Saami people, previously known as Laplanders, are the indigenous people of far northern Norway, Sweden, Finland, and the Kola Peninsula of Russia. Their traditional way of life was a nomadic one following the reindeer herds similar to Native Americans and the buffalo. Even today reindeer herding is reserved only for the Saami people in certain regions of the Nordic countries.
Saami jewelry and design features inspiration and materials from their native lands and tells a story about the Saami people. The handicraft, called tenntrådsbroderier, uses a very fine pewter wire wound around cotton thread, reindeer leather, and reindeer buttons. All bracelets are hand-crafted in the traditional method and uses materials imported from Sweden.
These designs are named in honor of grandmothers, grandfathers, great aunts, and great uncles whose Nordic heritage were an inspiration.
