Real Horse Hair,
Hand Braided Horse Hair Jewelry.
Enhance your natural beauty while making your western outfit pop!
Horse hair jewelry can be a meaningful present for horse-lovers.
Horse hair jewelry is stylish as well as environmentally friendly. All of the horse hair suppliers that I read about use tail hair from live animals, not the whole tail, obviously, but trimmings. It is cultivated like sheep's wool or llama hair. As an example, many horse farms in England traditionally trim the horse tails for showing purposes.
Horse hair is the long, coarse hair growing on the manes and tails of horses. The longer tail hair is mostly used for belts and necklaces while the shorter finer mane hair is used for bracelets and other jewelry. My research indicates the first use of horse hair was by the Spanish in the 8th century as a textile. One historic use was for gloves commonly used for fishing in the medieval age leading up to the 17th century in cold climates. Gloves woven from horse hair fibers were a very popular option in cold climates because horse hair is a very good insulator and also has a natural oil and rigid structure that allows them to be woven tightly and remain water proof and warm. Hair braiding dates back to the first dynasty of Pharaoh Menes. Ancient Egyptian sources describe Libyan men with long hair, braided and beaded.
I have tried to learn the four strand braid technique. I found it confusing, very time intensive and the end result left a lot to be desired! The search for a braiding machine has been futile. My admiration goes to those who are proficient in the art.
The art of braiding has mostly survived by western prison inmate hobbyists making reins, belts, bracelets, earrings, hat bands and barrettes. Horse hair jewelry gives its wearers an earthy, rustic look.
These are great Western styled bracelets that are nicely done, elegant yet very rugged. You can wear these beautiful bracelets anywhere and not worry. This bracelet is 1/2" wide and just slides to adjust to a very small size (about 4" around) to a very large size (about 9 1/2" around). They are all hand-made and no two are exactly alike.
Horsehair is the long, coarse hair growing on the manes and tails of horses. Horsehair can be very stiff or very fine and flexible, mane hair is generally softer and shorter than tail hair. The texture of horsehair can be influenced by the breed and management of the horse, including natural conditions such as diet or climate.
Most horse hair braiders use a square or box braiding technique to create the strands. The strands are about 1/8" square and then can be sewn together side-by-side to make a wide surface for any project. For example,a seven strand hat band will be 7/8"wide.
Black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. It was one of the first colors used in art. The color black represents strength, seriousness, power, and authority. Black is a formal, elegant, and prestigious color.
Brown is a composite color, made by combining red, yellow and black. Brown is a natural color that evokes a sense of strength, reliability and confidence.
White is the lightest color. It can represent a successful beginning. The color of snow, white is often used to represent coolness and simplicity, the color of perfection and purity.
