Saami Inspired Friendship Bracelets


 

 

Liz Bucheit creates jewelry and body adornment inspired by Scandinavian folklore and myth. Join her on Sun., Jan. 21, in a Saami Inspired jewelry class. Make a bracelet using authentic materials and learn techniques to use to make other pieces on your own.

The serene and dramatic landscape of northern Scandinavia is the land of the midnight sun, the northern lights and the Saami, a nomadic tribal group that follows the migration of the reindeer. Traditional Saami adornment incorporated elements of their northern landscape- softened reindeer leather and sculpted antler. In this course we will explore the traditional techniques of triple braiding coiled pewter wire and sewing the finished braid to a softened reindeer hide strip. A reindeer antler button finishes off the bracelet.

With a 30 year background in Scandinavian jewelry arts, Liz uses the finest quality vegetable tanned "svart" (black) reindeer hide and pewter wire comprised of 96% tin and 4% silver imported directly from Sweden. Additional kits and materials will be available the day of class.

All tools and supplies are furnished. Bring a lunch and either cheater glasses or some form of magnification.

Liz Bucheit holds a Master’s degree in metalworking and jewelry from the University of Iowa, Iowa City and has trained in traditional jewelry and metalworking techniques in Ireland and Norway. Liz has won numerous competitions and has been awarded grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board, McKnight Foundation, Sons of Norway and the SE Minnesota Arts Council.
