Description

the TRADITIONAL COLLECTION

Inspired by Anna’s Pokka family, and the traditional Sámi handcraft of her older family members, and the landscape of Sápmi, Anna created this fine jewelry line called the Traditional Collection. This collection of Sámi jewelry is about preserving tradition and culture and honouring family. It is important we honour what our ancestors have taught us. Anna hopes these pieces of jewelry will inspire you to get back to your roots, stand up for who you are and what you believe in, and find harmony in Nature.

design notes from Anna:

Named after our Sámi family name; Pokka symbolizes courage to me. To have the courage to go on your own life adventures. To face your fears… and don’t let them stop you to move on. My great grandmother showed empowering courage as she left everything behind the mountains to wander down South along the Torne River (Torneälven) to start a new life in the forest. I’m very proud to be of Pokka blood! It flows strongly though my veins and keeps me courageous and very passionate!

For sizing: measure your wrist snug above the bone, and add 1cm – 1.5cm depending on how loose you like the bracelet to fit

Every Simply Sámi bracelet is carefully made by hand by myself as you order it. Please be aware that making Sámi jewelry is a very slow but sustainable process. Every piece of jewelry is custom made after your wrist and personal style. All bracelets are made with love and passion from highest quality reindeer leather*, nickel- and lead free pewter thread with 4% silver, silver tag, and hand-made button from shed reindeer antler. All raw materials are imported from craftsmen in Norrbotten Lapland Sweden for true authenticity

  • All reindeer leather are vegetable dyed in a traditional way with bark without added chemicals or chrome, apart from the modern color options: blues, burgundy, and violet.

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. You can also rub a tiny bit of oil, like coconut oil, on it to make it soften faster. The reason why I make the loop snug is because I do not want you to loose your bracelet, so you can enjoy it for many years to come

Please always take off your Simply Sámi bracelet before showering or swimming as water damages leather. However, getting it a little wet occasionally does not damage the bracelet. Polishing is normally not required but the silver tag can be polished with a dry silver polish cloth if tarnished. The bracelet can be cleaned with leather conditioning if very dirty. The spun pewter wire will flatten down and take on a silver-like shiny patina when the bracelet is worn often.

For long-lasting durability, remove the bracelet before contact with water.

    Anna is just as lovely as her bracelets. I purchased the Pokka a few weeks before Christmas and Anna had it ready to go in a few days. Anna was very informative, I received emails throughout the process of my purchase to the time the bracelet completed and then was shipped. Anna was so helpful, kind and patient during this entire process and I would gladly shop at Simply Sami again. I highly recommend Anna’s products as well as her business. Anna’s professionalism and care for her clients and bracelets is very evident in the work she does. I am honored to represent your work in Vernon, BC and I hope to send many new clients your way! Thank you again Anna for your kindness! Wishing you a successful 2020!
