When I was in Sweden this summer, I encountered some of the most beautiful traditional arts I have ever seen in those of the indigenous Sami people of Scandinavia. The Samis are known for their exquisite work with reindeer hide, reindeer antler, and silver thread, which they work into beautiful embroidered leather bracelets, such as this one:
One of the friends I made while there is Sami, and she taught me about the art of creating Sami bracelets. I gave it a shot, and with a little practice, have begun to offer them alongside the hand-bound leather journals in my Etsy shop, Badon Hill.
Here's your chance to win one of these Sami bracelets for free! The one I am giving away has a four-part braid of silver thread, embroidered onto black reindeer leather, with reindeer antler button, all sourced from Sweden and made by me. This one is about 20 cm or 8 inches long, a good size for the average woman's wrist or a smaller-ish man's wrist. The Sami bracelet is a versatile piece, which would look great both as a formal accessory, or even with a simple pair of jeans.
