The pewter is nickel-free and contains 4% silver. Michaleen will demonstrate each step for participants to complete, with time and help provided in between. No experience necessary – all levels of jewelry makers welcome. All tools and materials included in cost of workshop for creating 1 Sami leather bracelet.

Born in 1993 in Wisconsin, Michaleen’s infatuation with art began at a young age and led to a BA in Arts from Luther College in 2015.  She took courses and studied Scandinavian design in the bowels of Vesterheim Museum.  Her interests include sampling any and all oddly flavored sodas and poorly committing to being a professional bird-caller.  She has at least one Culver’s free scoop coupon on her at all times.

  • Braiding with three strands.
  • Hand sewing/stitching leather.
  • Finishing antler buttons.
  • Reading glasses or magnifiers
