ASTORIA — Augusta Anderson, of Nomadic Artistry, is teaching two classes on Sami bracelet making 8 a.m. to noon Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 14 and 15, at Bumble Art Studio (230 10th St.).

She will also be at Finn Ware (1116 Commercial St.) that Saturday evening demonstrating her craft.

Anderson uses traditional and authentic materials imported from Sweden to create Sami bracelets for women and men, according to her website. Each piece of this handcrafted jewelry is meticulously handmade using centuries-old techniques in order for Nomadic Artistry to present a very beautifully authentic and much-loved piece of Scandinavian history and tradition.

Born in 1969, Anderson is a second-generation Swede and a third-generation Norwegian who grew up on Mitkoff Island in Southeast Alaska. Her website is nomadicartistry.com.
