Sámi Duodji sertifiserte
Sami has been immersed in craft culture since very early childhood: his mother is a goldsmith and a gemologist and father a silversmith and a duojár - Sámi craftsman. Sami studied Duodji in Sámi Education Institute in Inari. Even there […] many of his craft teachers were cousins, aunts and uncles. At school Sami focused on forging, wanting to learn from the experience of the bladesmith Pasi Jaakonaho. Later Sami got further qualification through an apprenticeship with his father, Petteri. When Petteri retired in 2015, Sami took over his duodji and silver shop, which was established in 1984. Sami's workshop Samekki is in the center of Inari village.
