These were Christmas gifts for 2 friends of mine who lost there Senior a few weeks before Christmas, it brought tears to their eyes when they opened them. My only negative comment was one of them the name on the plate was a Lil too far spread apart and looked a lil messy, but since it was a homemade item I won’t critique too much. They were still gorgeously made and they r really made the girls smile .... I will be placing future orders from this shop

I sent my own hair from a very special horse who passed away. She has done an amazing job of creating a special piece that I can carry with me forever. It’s great quality, well crafted, and overall just a great experience!

Frequently Asked Questions

***

1. Can you make me a piece of custom jewelry using hair from my horse?

Yes, I make custom jewelry using your provided hair. When placing your order for a custom piece, simply select the "My Hair" option from the dropdown menu. The mailing address to send your hair to is included in the confirmation email you will receive after placing your order.

2. How do I send my horse's hair to you for you to make into jewelry?

My mailing address is included in the confirmation email you will receive after placing your order. Simply package it securely in an envelope and mail it to me. Please contact me if you plan to send it by a method other then USPS.

3. How do I collect hair from my horse?

I recommend lifting the horse's tail and cutting the hair from behind the skirt of the tail. By doing it this way the overall appearance of the tail is not effected.

4. How much hair do you need?

I need a hank of hair approximately the circumference of a dime and as long as you can manage. I sort the hair out by length after washing it and brushing out the very short pieces, then count the hair out into bundles for braiding. This amount ensures that I receive enough usable hair.

5. Can I send you mane hair?

Mane hair is unsuitable for braided work, and I will not braid it without you making prior arrangements with me. There is also an additional charge of $20 due to the increased difficulty of working with mane hair. If I am sent mane hair without prior arrangements being made, the hair will be returned at your expense and the remainder of the order will be refunded.

Mane hair does, however, make excellent tassels and there is no additional charge for using it in this way.

6. Can you return any unused hair to me?

Any unused hair can be returned to you with your completed order at your request.

7. Where do you get the hair for your premade jewelry?

Premade jewelry is made out of hair leftover from other orders that the owners' did not want returned to me. I also occasionally trade custom work for hair in colors that I need. I have yet to find a commercial source of horsehair that is not a byproduct of the slaughter industry, and thus far I have been able to avoid buying it.

8. What are your findings made of?

I use nickel alloy endcaps and silvertone plated brass jump rings. Using non-precious metal findings allows me to keep my work affordable.

9. Can you make me a custom piece with special findings/a special charm/etcetra?

I can make a custom piece using special findings, but require that the customer pay for them.

10. How long does it take to finish my custom piece?

Depending on my workload, it takes 1-3 weeks from the time I receive the hair to complete the custom piece.

11. How do I know what size bracelet to order?

Measure the diameter of your wrist in inches and add one inch. Average is 7.5-8 inches. If the bracelet is too tight you may find it difficult to work the clasp!

12. How do I care for horsehair jewelry?

Heat, light and friction are the enemies of horsehair jewelry. It should not be repeatedly wetted, although it can be washed with gentle soap if dirty, and it should be stored in a cool, dry place when not being worn.

13. How durable is horsehair jewelry?

As long as it is properly cared for, horsehair jewelry will be a wonderful keepsake for years to come. There are pieces of Victorian-era hairwork in existence that are still wearable after over 100 years!

14. I have a question that isn't answered here!

If you have a question that isn't answered here, just send me a note through Etsy! I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
