AWAKE represents Sámi culture in our present time. Anna uses traditional crafting and materials to create a very contemporary and unique design. Sámi culture is still in existence and is very much awake and alive. This bracelet model is the perfect combination of old and new
The pattern the pewter thread is woven is contemporary and new, but the handmade badges from Jokkmokk Sweden are engraved with very old and traditional Sámi symbols. This combination gives Awake a very powerful and empowering design
The uniquely handmade pewter badges made of tin and sterling silver are from Jokkmokk, Sweden. The badgets are engraved with old traditional Sámi symbols: the symbols of the shamantic (noaidic) Sámi drum, a reindeer, or a Sámi geometric woven pattern used in many traditional handcraft. What badget you get depends on what I have available at the moment.
For Your Perfect Fit: Measure your wrist snug on its thinnest part in cm, then another 1-1.5cm to get the bracelet size depending on how loose you want the bracelet to fit
Care Note: Caring for your jewelry begins with being mindful of how to wear your pieces and when to take them off. Please always take off your Simply Sámi bracelet before showering, swimming or exercising as water and sweat deteriorates the leather. The spun pewter and sterling silver wire requires minimal care, and will flatten down and take on a silver-like shiny patina over time. You can polish the wire and silver tag with a soft cloth, and the leather can be cleaned with leather conditioning if very dirty
When you are not wearing the jewelry, keep the bracelets stored in its box or bag to keep them from exposure to outside element. Please keep the necklaces tied together tight, and leave them hanging from the leather part
Please be aware that a new Simply Sámi bracelet can feel a little stiff, but it quickly softens as you wear it. Same thing with the loop; it is made a little snug as the leather softens and the loop gets softer and slightly bigger after a few days of you wearing it
