  • BELT-JEWELLERY (SUNWHEEL) The sami women attached a special jewellery to their broad leather belts. This belt-jewellery was either made of metal or of reindeerhorn. Under the belt-jewellery the women hung their knives, needle-cases, spoon-bags , scissor-covers and purses. The keys for the storehouses and treasury boxes were additionally attached to the belt-jewellery when they moved with their reindeer herds. Some models of our belt-jewellery are from the Middle Ages. They were found beside ancient sami sacrificial stones in Sweden. The scientists assume that the motives are sunwheels or sun-symbols . Thereby the belt-jewellery got their name: sunwheel. The name sunwheel is modern and was used for the first time at Juhls Silverworkshop in the middle of the 1960's . Most of our sunwheels originate from belt-jewellery made of reindeer-horn. To make jewellery which is fit for the modern women we had to decrease the size of all the original sunwheels.
