Create a Precious Metal Clay Sami Bracelet
Please note, this event has expired.
The Sami People are the indigenous people of Sweden, Norway, Finalnd, and the Kola Peninsula of Russia, who have a long history and tradition of reindeer breeding.
Instructor: Kim Bakken Parr
Wanting to utilize all of the reindeer, these people make beautiful jewelry out of leather and shed antler pieces. In this class students will start by braiding pewter thread (nickel free allow with 4% silver) and sewing it to leather. The back of the bracelet is stitched closed using sinew thread, and a button claps made from shed antler tips. All tools are provided, but students who need magnification for this close hand work should bring their own.
