I had a lot of fun creating this design, which features five - 3.25" long sections of 5mm thick braided horse hair. Each section is finished off with two solid aged brass patina end caps. Each section of horse hair is joined with the next section with two round 8mm stone Picasso beads, and a 20/16 puffed oval turquoise and bronze Picasso bead. The entire necklace measures about 31.5" around.
You can choose to have this necklace made with your horse hair or horse hair from my own private collection.
Ordering Info:If you'd like to order this necklace made with hair from my private collection:
The necklace pictured has black and white mixed horse hair. If you're ordering this necklace with my horse hair, the colors that I generally keep in stock are black, white, grey, sorrel, purple, turquoise, red, green, blue. You can request to have any of these colors combined in any way you wish. Special color requests are always welcome, just contact me ahead of time if you have something specific in mind that you don't see listed here.
If you'd like to send in your own horse hair for this necklace:
Please send a bunch of horse hair that's at least 1/3" thick and at least 12" long.
While there are exceptions, I prefer working with tail hair rather than mane hair, as the texture of mane hair is usually unsuitable for braiding. If you are hoping to have this necklace made with mane hair, please contact me before ordering to discuss your options. I'm always happy to help with processing your order, so feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need ordering assistance.
I will wash your horse hair when I receive it, so you don't need to wash it before sending it, but please make sure that it's completely dry before packaging it up. Also, please include the name that's on your order on or in the package with your horse hair.
