This lovely bracelet features horse hair, color of your choice, plated into an 9mm wide braid. The hair is braided around a nylon paracord core, which helps add size to the braid. The 9mm hammered sterling silver end caps connect the ends of the bracelet with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp.
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 1/2" thick bunch of tail hair that's at least 20" 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. I recommend adding 1/4" - 1/2" to your wrist measurement for this bracelet design, because the bulk of the chunky braid sucks up a bit of the length.
