HOW TO ORDER
Ordering your unique horsehair or ashes jewellery could not be simpler.
For RINGS, PENDANTS, EARRINGS, KEYRINGS, STOCKPINS and BROOCHES :
Please select directly from the relevant collections. You can add gemstones by selecting the plain ring or other item and then choosing your stones from the Gemstones collection. Or you can email me to discuss any variation in design. All my rings are made to measure, I send out a ring sizer when an order is placed for a ring to ensure accurate sizing.
For BRACELETS, CHOKERS and NECKLACES :
Either select directly from the corresponding collection and add to your basket with a note to say whether you are sending hair /pet fur/ashes or require stock hair or select items individually from the Design Your Own Collection.
Payment can then be made via Paypal or credit/debit card at the checkout.
Measure your wrist for bracelets or your neck for chokers, I send out a bangle sizer for bangles.
Brush and cut the appropriate length and thickness of hair from your horses tail according to which item of jewellery you require. Band the hair at one end,and wash with a standard shampoo (no conditioner) and allow to fully air dry.
For Ashes items I need half a teaspoon full for small items and a teaspoon full for bangles and cuffs.
Place in a bag with your name on inside an envelope and post to me at the address provided below
For custom made END CAPS, CHARMS, PENDANTS , KEYRINGS and SCULPTURES:
Simply add to basket the style that you want and email me a profile photograph to create the design from.
MINIMUM HAIR LENGTH
As long as possible is always best as it makes braiding easier.
Bracelets require about a fingers thickness of hair 12" ( 30cm) long.
16 weave Spiral braid requires 26" (65cm) long.
Unless you select wire in the braid in which case 12" will be OK.
Choker necklaces require 28" (70cm) or can be made in 2 sections of 15" (38cm) each.
Necklaces require 32" (80cm) for 18" length or can be made in 2 sections of 17" (42cm)each.
For shorter lengths of hair bracelets can be made with a short section of hair on a chain or 2 short sections.
Pendants and brooches require 8" (20cm)
Rings and stock pins require 5" (13cm)
Crystal resin and inlaid items ( rings, bangles, cuffs and some pendants) can be made incorporating short hairs/animal fur or cremation ashes.
Please note these are minimum lengths, the longer the better for braiding.
WHERE TO SEND YOUR HAIR/SHIPPING INFORMATION
Include your full name, address, email , order number and wrist, bangle or neck measurement. My address is as follows :
Direct Transport (Seabird LTD)
This is a courier service that leaves the UK every Friday for Portugal and is a safer way to send than our postal service. If your horse or pet has passed on please do NOT send all the hair you have, it is very rare but not impossible that it gets lost in the postal system so if it is irreplaceable its always best to keep some back. For anybody sending from outside the EU please mark as '“ washed hair for crafting $0” or you may be charged a customs fee and it will also be likely to cause delays.
Payment can be made via Paypal or credit/debit card or contact me if you prefer bank transfer.
