You can have "stupid" ideas....

A few years ago I rediscovered riding for myself and when once again the farrier had been on the farm and quite a bunch of used horseshoes were lying around, I first came up with the idea to make garden decoration with these horseshoes. Said done, the irons came home and my husband and I got to work.

Since one or the other decoration idea such as butterflies or bees needed feelers, we came up with the idea of representing them with hoof nails and welding them on. Unfortunately, the nails were not particularly suitable for this and so I stood there with a started 100 packet of nails that seemed to have no use at first.

So that the purchase was not completely in vain, I began to make jewelry from the hoof nails, at first properly smiled at by the husband it turned out that my followers arrived wonderfully at the various artisan and Christmas markets and are therefore permanently in my assortment. I founded my online shop in 2020 because all market dates were cancelled due to the pandemic and thus my income has also collapsed. In the meantime, however, I have also been able to exhibit my products with acquaintances and friends in their business premises.

Since my first of now over 500 lucky nails, I have also completed further training in the field of jewelry design as well as various courses in silversmithing and stone setting, and now have a really well-equipped workshop. My results will now be gradually offered in the shop.

With me you can essentially buy finished jewelry, but if there is not the right one in the shop, I am also happy to make according to the personal taste of the customer.

My jewelry is lovingly wrapped in homemade paper bags made of wrapping paper and is therefore a wonderful gift. In addition, there is a chain made of waxed cotton so that you can wear your lucky nail directly.
