The dramatic landscape of northern Scandinavia is that of the midnight sun, northern lights, and the Sámi--the indigenous peoples of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and parts of Russia. The Sámi were once tribal nomadic peoples that followed the migration of the reindeer. Traditional Sámi jewelry incorporates elements of their northern landscape – softened reindeer leather, braided pewter wire and sculpted antler.
