Information & Care for your new Sami Bracelet

Make sure you have your correct size before ordering Nomadic Artistry Sámi Handicraft.

Ensure your bracelet fits properly!

 When it comes to sizing your wrist it can sometimes be difficult. There is a temptation to use a size you've been given in the past or measure a watch band. Even measuring your existing Nomadic Artistry bracelet can be tricky. Follow these tips to get the best fit.


Do:

  • DO use a fabric or paper measuring tape.
  • DO measure where you will be wearing your bracelet.
  • Do keep in mind that your bracelet will stretch at least 1/4" over time and with consistent wear.
  • DO measure the ACTUAL circumference of your wrist. Not loose, not tight. 
  • And once you have the actual measurement, DO add 1/4" to 1/2" depending on how you would like it to fit.


Don't: 

  • DON'T measure an old bracelet or watch band.
  • DON'T measure low on your wrist if you plan on wearing it high. The opposite applies as well.
  • DON'T forget that your bracelet will stretch at least 1/4" with consistent wear.
  • DON'T pull the tape measure tight and don't leave it slack.
  • DON'T forget to add the 1/4" up to 1/2", depending on how you would like your bracelet to fit.

Choosing Your Design

Each piece is unique and special; every piece created and handcrafted by Augusta Anderson. 


The  leather is beautiful and because of the nature of leather, the color  will change by deepening and becoming richer with time and wear. You  will also see a change in the pewter; it will flatten and become shiny  in places, forming a wonderful patina. This will vary greatly depending  on the frequency you wear your piece and how you care for it. 


The  heavy gauge pieces are perfect for those who will wear their piece  everyday and give it a lot of love. Time, for these pieces, creates a  very deep "wear pattern". Examples are: Dori, Within, Tide, Dori Sing, One Rope, and Dagr, to name a few. 


The  fine gauge pieces, if worn everyday, will show the result of time and  wear much quicker, simply because they are made with a fine gauge of  pewter. Less alloy means quicker transformation.

Examples are: Big Drift, Trail in the Snow and Bobbie's Rose, to name a few.


Ask yourself how often  you will wear your piece and the rigors you will put it through when  choosing your bracelet

Caring For Your Piece

In order to maintain the life and beauty of your piece we advise you:

  • Avoid wearing your piece in water. (i.e. swimming, bathing, showering).
  • Always  use the button to remove or to put your bracelet on. This ensures that  your bracelet will not undergo unnecessary stretching caused by improper  removal or wearing.
  • If there is a rare occasion when your  bracelet needs to be washed, do so with a gentle soap and as little water as possible. To dry  it, blot it against a towel to absorb as much water as possible.

Things to know

Fit and Appearance

image3

Your bracelet will fit tighter when new, but with wear it will stretch  approximately 1/4 of an inch and mold beautifully to your wrist.  Thereafter, it will maintain definition for years to come.
As your  bracelet ages, it will take on a new life, becoming more beautiful. The  pewter thread will flatten over time, creating a unique silver-like and  shiny patina.
