Inspired by the Sami people who inhabit the Arctic circle, this bangle features a hand-carved reindeer antler pyramid-shaped cabochon, etched with ancient Sami patterns of reindeer, stag, birds, the stars and the moon, then inlayed with india ink to bring out the design.
Reindeer antlers are shedded naturally and harvested once a year. You can see our Sami carver at work along with his beautiful herd of reindeer in the 'about' section - a true craftsman with over 40 years experience in shepherding and scrimshaw carving. We've worked closely together to create a modern twist on ancient Sami styles, and make something luxurious, beautiful and sustainably-sourced.
Reindeer horn cabochon is set into a silver bangle, handmade in our London studio from 100% recycled silver and comes beautifully packaged in recycled No 13 boxes.
Reindeer Cabochon measures approx. 2cm at widest points and sits 1.6cm above wrist. Adjustable bangle measures approx 5.6cm internally.
**As this collection is inspired by an indigenous culture that is heavily affected by our actions on the planet, a percentage of the profits are donated to the National Wildlife Federation - a conservation group which unites individuals and businesses to protect wildlife, wild places, and the environment.**
