    This is a pewter bangle made in 1978 by Hantverkarnas Tenn in Jokkmokk, Sweden. They made pewter with samic traditional designs in pewter and silver. I haven´t been able to find out who the maker is although the initials are marked inside the bangle, Ithink its "TN". In the last photo I show it together with my sami bracelet that you can see in a separate post. I think they look great together.

      Never seen a pewter bracelet before. nice
    2. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 6 years ago
      Thanks Zowie, pewter jewelry was quite popular in scandinavia around the 60's. I think prices on silver was high and the artists wanted to find something else to work with. A lot of the designs are very modernist and experimental (this bangle isn't in that style). I buy some pieces I like now and then. I think in a few years people will find them cool and prices will go up...better make sure I have some already. I will try to find a link for some of thoss ones here soon.

      Last night I met with Valentino97 and I gave her this bangle as a souvenir. So it is hers now. Lovely to meet you my friend :)

      This is very cool. Even looks silver from here! I guess it's polished, brushed and carved that gives it this unique look. (Looks like I missed you again!)
    20. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 1 year ago
      Thank you Shareurpassion! Yes that is how they must have done it.
      I think we might have a timedifference to fight you and I, in order to be on CW at the same time :)
