Horse Hair Bracelets Custom Ordered

June 11, 2014

Many people for special bonds with their animals and want to find some way to feel as if they are in constant contact. For many, this need is met through items such as screen printed tees, lockets with photos or special charms that represent a species, breed or favored pet. Admirers of equines often find that horse hair bracelets are a stylish way to show their devotion.

These fine pieces of jewelry are actually made from hairs cut directly from the animal, causing no pain at all. The strands are generally gathered from the tail because of their length, thickness and strength. For those who prefer it, there are other items that may be created using the shorter, finer strands from the mane.

Many artisan shops take into consideration that some people who love equines do not own one personally yet still want to wear accessories that make them feel connected. For this reason, they will generally keep a stock of ready made pieces created from random horses that customers can purchase at any time. These wrist decorations are available in a variety of designs, color variations and styles.

A large percentage of these pieces are custom orders from people wishing to have a part of their favorite animal with them at all times. Sometimes this is one that is still living, and other times it may be one that was very cherished and has been lost. Strands may be collected from multiple horses and combined into one cohesive work.

Those placing a custom order will be provided with detailed, yet simple instructions for properly collecting the necessary products. Generally, hairs are taken from the sections nearest the tailbone and gathered into a bundle that should be about as thick around as an average pencil. The harvest materials should be banded together at one end and sent to the artist provided address.

Unless the bundle is absolutely filthy, most artist will request it not be washed prior to being mailed as they prefer to treat it with their own products for easy handling. The bundles are usually done in either three stranded braids, or four, depending on whether or not one is preferring a flattened or rounded result. The braided pieces are then twisted and bound in a number of possible configurations for a variety of looks.

To keep this configuration in place and the hairs from getting loose, many artists bind them together using brass or silver end caps with connecting chains and latches. To create their unique looks, various decorative items such as beads and baubles are added to the work. Many individuals choose to add sentimental items like engraved charms or photo drops just to further personalize the piece.

Many individuals wear these pieces as a way to keep a part of a much loved animal near to them everywhere they go. For some, it is a pleasant reminder of just how loving and gentle these creatures can be, providing loyalty, trust and friendship in their own special way. Whether custom made or purchased from stock, these unique bangles make beautiful accessories and heartfelt memorials.
