Swedish Lapland Sami Style Leather Cuff

6.5" (16.5 cm) Women's Extra Small for snug wrist measurement of 6" (15-15.5 cm)
Antique gold lambskin, antler button, spun silver and pewter wires

Swedish LAPLAND or SAMI JEWELRY has been popular in northern Europe for a long time but is now popular all over the world. Small collections of the hard-to-find bracelets can sometimes be found in high-end fashion boutiques in major cities at prices that are up to three times SwedArt’s prices. New trendy designs and colors in reindeer and lambskin hides are constantly delighting fashion minded customers who often like to wear them stacked. US celebrities like Sheryl Crow, Angela Bassett, Sara Rue, Ali Fedotowsky, Ashley Jones, Chelsea Staub, Natasha Alam, Wayne Brady, Gilles Marini, Bob Harper, Dennis Quaid, and NY Rangers hockey goalie Henrik Lundqvist have been seen sporting Swedish Lapland bracelets, and several fashion magazines and blogs have showcased them recently as “the new luxury trend”.

SIZE Measure your wrist and add half an inch (10-15 mm), or slightly less if you want it snug. The leather will stretch up to 5 mm over time.

WARRANTY SwedArt jewelry comes with full warranty and can be returned within 30 days for a full refund minus shipping, or returned for an exchange as long as it has not been worn.

They should be removed before showering, swimming, and working out but they will not be damaged by getting wet occasionally and they can be cleaned with water and a dry cloth.

BACKGROUND AND MATERIAL INFORMATION ABOUT SWEDART JEWELRY:

The jewelry originated in a 10,000 year old exotic culture in northern Europe. The indigenous Sami People can be found in Sweden, Norway, Finland and the Kola Peninsula of Russia. The Sami lived on the land before the rest of the Scandinavians arrived.

There are still 3,000 Sami (formerly called Laplanders) who live near or above the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland who own herds with sometimes thousands of domesticated reindeer (caribou) and who have reindeer husbandry as their livelihood. By purchasing items made of traditional Sami materials, we help support the existence of this unique reindeer herding population and their remarkable craft traditions.

Sami artisans have made beautiful household items, shoes, clothes, art and crafts of reindeer leather with antler details and embroidered with spun pewter for hundreds of years.
SwedArt jewelry has been handmade of soft top grade reindeer leather and high quality spun pewter wire (nickel free alloy with 4% silver). Most other leathers have been chrome tanned but Swedish reindeer hides have been vegetable tanned (with bark) so the leather is environmentally friendly as well as fine to wear for people with chrome allergy. In addition, some SwedArt leather fashion colors are made of fine European lambskin. The wire is spun around a strong synthetic sinew thread and made on a small machine in northern Sweden. In the old days, it was made completely by hand by the Sami who invented this type of attractive looking wire. I have also added sterling silver, fine silver, and 14k gold beads, Swarovski crystals, spun silk cords, leather cords, and pearls to contemporary new fashion styles. The antler button is made of shed reindeer antler tips, the leather loop has been reinforced with synthetic sinew, and the leather is hand sewn with strong synthetic sinew thread. Some bracelets have an exclusive SwedArt silver button.

Remove your leather bracelet before taking a shower or swimming. Leather dries out and can even shrink if getting wet on a daily basis.

The braids are made of a soft alloy of pewter and silver and they require no maintenance. They will flatten down over time and take on a silvery slightly darker patina.

Becauses there is silver in the wires, please avoid salt water, chlorinated water or contact with anything that normally tarnishes silver.
Sterling silver or fine silver beads can easily be polished with a dry silver wipe if they have tarnished.
Swarovski Crystal Pearls have layers of nacre over a crystal and should be worn with care.

Hand tanned (and vegetable tanned) tan leather may develop a slightly darker patina with age.
