A custom bracelet/necklace set for an Etsy customer in dyed red horsehair.
The hair for this bracelet was collected from a miniature pony mare named Belle. The hair was collected by Belle's owner and sent to me in trade for some custom work. Belle is one of the lucky ones - she is living out her golden years in a loving forever home!
All of my horsehair items are handmade by me using horsehair gathered from animals encountered through my work in the animal welfare field. Only a small amount is taken from each horse during the normal grooming process. Each animal is an individual who's memory lives on in the items made from their hair, even after the animal has passed through my life. All my horsehair is cruelty-free, is not a by-product of the equine slaughter industry and is vegetarian/vegan friendly.
For each purchase of a horsehair bracelet, $5 will be donated to Team Kareem, an animal welfare group dedicated to helping the pyramid horses, donkeys and camels of Cairo, Egypt. If you aren't familiar with their work I recommend that you visit their website at [link]
