  • 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. Våre smykker med solhjulmotiver er blitt forminsket slik at de kan brukes som smykker for dagens kunder.
