I love the idea of horse hair jewelry as a keepsake and a fashion statement.  I really wish I had kept some hair from my first horse that I could have had designed into jewelry and always had her with me.  First horses are so special!  That is why I think the Braided Love Collection is the perfect Valentines gift!  As equestrians, we love anything horse related and this piece is unique and special.  Horses do go Straight to the Heart!

This eye catching sterling silver open heart (20 mm x 16 mm) wraps itself around a round braid; hand braided from your horse’s tail hair or from my inventory.  This custom designed braided horsehair necklace is adorned with sterling silver end caps and your choice of either a sterling silver toggle clasp, as featured in the photo, or a stainless steel lobster clasp. What a perfect way to show your love for your horse!

I also really liked Allie’s Love Knot.  It is a beautiful, interesting piece that would be the perfect accessory to any outfit

Quartet brings in another interesting twist with the extra color in the middle.  This could represent two horses or just one!quart2

Wenda even offers custom orders so you can get that perfect piece to remember that perfect horse in your life!  These would make such wonderful gifts and anyone who received one would feel so special.  I know I would!  Horses make up so much of our lives and this is the perfect way to cherish them every day even after they are gone.

Testimonials for Braided Love:

I love my new necklace made from Johnnie’s hair, I feel like he is now close to me even though he is gone.  It is beautiful and meaningful with his name on the pendant.  Thank you SO much for a beautiful job!!  Jan

When I ordered my bracelet from Wenda I had no idea what to expect because I gave her the “green light” to run with her very creative imagination…and so, “Allie’s Love Knot” was born.  Allie is my beautiful chestnut fox trotter and she is also my very first horse.  The creation of Allie’s Love Knot will always be very special to me.  I wear my bracelet almost every day and constantly receive compliments on its beauty and uniqueness.  I also have a pair of what I call “Allie earrings” and will soon have a complete set as I plan to order a necklace.  This jewelry is not only beautiful because for us horse lovers it is a unique way to have our special equine friends with us always.  I cannot express in words how happy I am with my jewelry.  Thank you so much Wenda! Terry

Thank you so much for the bracelet. My filly Ebony meant to me, and although I only had Eb for less than a year before I had to make the decision to put her down due to a debilitating and rare disease, she was my ‘heart horse’, and the most amazing horse I have ever had the honor of knowing. I think of her ever day, and now I will always have a piece of her with me. Thank you, Wenda. What you are making has truly touched my heart, and though I am sure many people feel the same way, I wanted you to hear it from me too. :) Meghann

They can be used after surgery, injuries or for combating arthritic conditions.  The important part of these is the Celliant fiber.
