This bracelet is made with strands of horse hair, individually counted and plated into a square braid, measuring about 5mm thick. The 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.
I'm happy to make one of these with your horse's hair, or with horse hair from my own private stock.
There is no extra cost for you to send in your own horse hair. If you're sending in your own horse hair, please send at least 1/4" thick bunch of tail hair that's at least 16" long. I will return any leftover horse hair with the finished bracelet. 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 once I receive your horse hair. If I don't get your horse hair within a 30 days of the date your order is placed, your order will be canceled.
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.
Please be sure to send an accurate measurement for the bracelet. "Bracelet length" refers to the total length of the bracelet, including the clasp. I recommend measuring a well-fitting bracelet to get an accurate length. Alternatively, you can place a string around your wrist and cut it to a comfortable length, then measure the string.
