Dramatic and distinctive, this tactile necklace by Maria Rudman was created using the ancient techniques of the Sami of Sweden. The 28" strand of hand-braided pewter is connected to two tabs of home tanned reindeer hide. It fastens with a carved antler button and loop closure. Wrap it around your wrist four times to create a eye-catching bracelet, or wear it long as a single strand necklace!

FRANCE - Maria Rudman - former model, TV presenter, fashion stylist and photographer - grew up by a lake in Sweden in a house filled with handicrafts made by the Sami, the original inhabitants of northern Scandinavia.

After many years of research and close collaboration with both Samis and other indigenous craftspeople, Maria Rudman has created a collection of intricately made bracelets using braided and embroidered pewter on leather and fastened by shed reindeer antler buttons. These bracelets become only more beautiful with age and have an avid collector base.
