Custom horse hair jewelry by Heidi Smith

Turning your horse's hair into beautiful jewelry

You don't have to ruin your horse's beautiful tail to create custom jewelry. Use this technique to remove a lock of hair that you won't even notice missing. 

Cut the hair underneath the tail, as close to the base as possible. 

You will need to gather a bundle of hair with the desired width for the jewelry. Most bracelets require a bundle of hair  approximately an inch thick. 

The length you will need depends on the length of the jewelry you would like. Allow an extra 2 inches (approximately) to account for shortening when braiding or adding clasps.
