Shades of red and brown horse hair were meticulously braided into a 4-strand necklace and adorned with a sea glass pendant etched with a flying bird. The horsehair braid measures 16″ and has an over-sized lobster clasp with a 2″ extender chain. The seaglass pendant hangs 2″ making the entire necklace measure 18-20″ from clasp to the bottom of the etched pendant.

- 18 inches ~ Princess = Hangs at the collarbone
- 20 inches ~ Matinee = Reaches just past the collarbone

Caring for your horse hair jewelry
Horse hair is a natural fiber that is fragile but durable if taken care of.
- Store in a cool, dry place like a satin jewelry pouch when you aren’t wearing it.
- Keep the horse hair from snagging by wearing it by itself snugly against your wrist.
- Try not to regularly soak your braided horse hair jewelry as this can weaken the sealant, mildew the braid, or even tarnish the hardware.
If your braid gets wet, allow it to dry naturally. If it snags and a hair strand is broken, use nail clippers to carefully snip the broken hair close to the braid.
The hardware may tarnish. It’s a natural occurrence that happens over time due to air and water exposure.
