European Style Horse Hair Bead (Cylinder)
Designed with four to six long strands of tail hair, this European Stlye (Pandora Type) bead is created with sterling silver ends. The horse hair is sealed inside the bead for a permanent design. Additional hair strands can be added if desired at no additional fee. Each is accented by the client's choice metallic flake added in with the hair, creating a stunning visual accent and bead coloring. **Exact coloring of each bead will vary. Sometimes, in order to maximize the visibility of the hair, more or less coloring may be required.
Each hair is set by hand, meaning no two pieces will ever look exactly the same. **THIS LISTING IS FOR THE SALE OF ONE BEAD. Multiple beads shown in some photos simply to showcase color options.
All items designed by Equine Keepsakes are covered under a warranty. I will repair damaged hardware, replace lost charms, etc. Repairs are free. Replacement of lost charms or hardware may be subjected to a small fee.
What to expect if you order:
Each product listing contains an estimate of how much hair will be needed for the design you have chosen. You can select to send in horse hair or, if you prefer, you may select to have your keepsakes created with my horse hair in your choice color(s). If you send in your own horse hair, any unused hair will be returned with your finished order.
After completing your order please mail your horse hair to:
P.O. Box 912
Monongahela, PA 15063
***Please note that you will be invoiced for a $25 fee if your horse hair arrives to me before your order is placed as this causes confusion and delays in the order process.
You do not need to wash the hair before mailing. I will do that once it arrives. I ask that you avoid braiding it if possible. If it is already braided please do not worry, I can still work with it! The only thing you need to do it contain the cut end of the hair so that it stays together during transit. (A rubber band is preferred over anything else, if possible.) If the hair is too short to band I simply ask that you place it in a zipper sealed baggy inside the bubble mailer.
Please mail in a bubble mailer with tracking via USPS (United States Postal Service). The tracking will allow you to verify when the package arrives. Additionally, please ensure that the name listed at checkout is the name listed on the return address section of the package, as this will ensure that I know the horse hair is yours upon arrival.
(Please do NOT ship wet horse hair as it will mildew in transit and likely be permanently ruined.)
My current estimated production times can be seen on my "FAQ" page. Rush orders are available if needed, more information on those rates can be seen as you progress through checkout. Once your order is finished you will receive an email containing tracking for your order. All orders are shipped with tracking via USPS. Orders over $250 will require a signature upon delivery.
