This bracelet is made with strands of horse hair, individually counted and plated into a square braid, about 5mm thick. The white bronze end caps are made exclusively for SC Equine, and feature four horse shoes, circling the barrel, which is bordered on the top and bottom by lariat ropes. Another horse shoe sits on the domed top of the end cap, forming the loop that the lobster claw clasp attaches to.
Your bracelet will come packaged in a gift box, perfect to give as a gift or keep your own treasure safe. I'd be happy to make one of these with your horse's hair, or with a different color/color combination of my own horse hair.
There is no extra cost for you to send in your own horse hair. If you're sending in your own horse hair, I need at least 1/4" thick bunch for this bracelet, that's at least 18" long. It is my policy to return an leftover hair with the finished item, unless you tell me you don't need it back. If you don't have enough horse hair for this item, I can supplement some of my own if you wish, but will not do so without your approval.
Custom orders take longer than stock orders, so please allow up to 3 - 4 weeks for your custom order to be completed, but remember, the sooner I get your hair, the sooner I can finish your order!
When sending in your own horse hair, you don't need to wash it, but please try to pick out any leaves/twigs/debris as much as possible. Make sure the hair is completely dry, snap a rubber band around one end of the bunch, and place the bunch in a baggy. I recommend shipping the hair in something a bit more sturdy than just a plain, white, letter envelope.
The address for you to ship the hair to will come in your order confirmation email. Due to the difference in texture, I strongly prefer to work with tail hair, but am sometimes able to use mane hair, if that's the only option. If mane hair is all that you have, please contact me before ordering to discuss your options.
