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.

The term French braid is used on the human head because of the various lengths of hair involved. French braid starts with three small sections of hair near the crown of the head, which are then braided together toward the nape of the neck, gradually adding more hair to each section as it crosses in from the side into the center of the braid structure. These are actually a simple three-strand braid where all the hair is initially divided into three equal sections, where one outside strand across the center strand and then pass the other one across the center one.

The French braid hairstyle has been used for thousands of years. It is the simplest form of braiding, using three groups of hair. These bracelets feature a rope-like twist, some in multiple colors, and a lobster-claw clasp. The Lobster Claw Clasp is the safest jewelry clasp to own. It's the most durable of all the clasps.

French Braid Choker Necklace

French Braid Horsehair Choker Necklace

Choker

A choker is a close-fitting necklace worn around the neck. They can be adorned in a variety of ways, including with sequins, studs, or a pendant. They have been around for thousands of years, first gracing the world's earliest civilizations. Often made with gold or lapis, the necklaces were thought to be protective and instilled with special powers. Historically, they were associated with high fashion. However, in the late 19th century, a plain, thin, red, or black ribbon choker had ties to prostitution. In Native American culture, chokers functioned as a form of protection for tribal warriors, guarding the jugular and deflecting arrows from the neck in battle. Also, it was thought to protect the voice and provide great speaking abilities to the wearer. The bone-choker would guide the warrior to speak the truth directly from the heart.

Porcupine Quill Earrings

Native American style Porcupine Quill Earrings

Porcupine Quills

Porcupine quills grow in varying lengths and colors depending on the animal's age and species. All are modified hairs, coated with thick plates of keratin, and are embedded in the skin. Single quills are interspersed with bristles, underfur, and hair. Quills are released by contact or may drop out when the porcupine shakes its body. New quills grow to replace lost ones. Porcupines were long believed to have the ability to project their quills to a considerable distance at an enemy, but this has since been proven to be untrue.

Black, Brown and White Three Strand Horse Hair Bracelet HH83-2

What do you think of the Appearance?

The width was just right for a man's wrist, not too thin or thick. The multi colored strands make a very high quality appearance.
What do you think of the Durability?

I especially like a loop closure that makes adjusting the size easy. It is easy to take on and off compared to a lobster clasp.

Thank you for sending the beautiful horse hair bracelets.

What is Horse Hair?

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[55]. Horse hair is the only kind of hair that is harvested without killing the animal. The hair comes from the mane or tail. Think of it as a haircut. The barber doesn’t kill you to lower your ears[56]. Horse hair is strong. Items made from it lasts for years, if not decades!

What is Horse Hair Braiding?

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.
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.
