Horses Past and Present: a new bracelet

It is that time of year again when I make something for my daughter to wear. This year has been bitter sweet, with our lovely, loyal Fell pony Drifter being put to sleep on the one hand. On the other the arrival of Charlie, a young horse with such a lot to learn.

This latest project started as an experiment with the intention of producing three strands, two from one horse and one from the other. One strand has four Tiger's Eye beads threaded onto it. One for each year of Charlie's life. The strands are all joined together and are loosely entwined.

  1. Your work is beautiful! I do a lot of kumihimo and have been wanting to incorporate horsehair into my designs. A student of mine is wanting to experiment with horsehair braids, so I will definitely refer her to your wonderful blog!

    1. Thanks Heather for you lovely comments. This all started with a simple design but led to so many other things. More designs to follow, especially necklaces!
