The dramatic landscape of northern Scandinavia is that of the midnight sun, northern lights, and the Saami, a nomadic tribal group that follows the migration of the reindeer. Traditional Saami jewelry incorporates elements of their northern landscape – softened reindeer leather and sculpted antler. In this class we'll explore the traditional jewelry techniques of braiding coiled pewter wire, and sewing the finished braid to a softened reindeer hide strip. A reindeer antler button finishes off the bracelet. All materials provided. Class fee is $35 and is payable to Ingebretsen's. The materials fee is $85 and is payable to the instructor.
