Sámi Bracelet "Joika"
Reindeer leather, coiled pewter thread, and antler button.
Sizing: To figure out your size, wrap a string around your wrist and then measure the string or use a flexible tailor's tape. Add 1/2 inch to your actual wrist circumference to determine the size you need. So if your wrist measures roughly 6 1/8 inches, this bracelet is perfect for you.
True North has been selling Sámi bracelets for over seven years and our customers love them. They are simultaneously contemporary and mythic, casual and elegant. Incredibly comfortable to wear, they look great as a single bracelet or stacked together, in varying widths.
The reindeer leather has a soft sheen that develops into a beautiful patina over time. The coiled pewter thread flattens with wear, and acts like facets, reflecting the light even more than when the thread was "young." (This "sparking" quality of the bracelets calls to mind the Norwegian term for the craft, “tenntrådsbroderier," which translates as “spark thread embroidery.") Some customers like the well-worn look of the bracelets so much that they "confess" to asking their young sons to wear them for a few months, to speed up the "aging" process with their rough-and-tumble behavior!
