First Horsehair Bracelet!

I made it as a birthday gift for my guy down in San Diego, since I know he appreciates handmade things and, well, I'm broke. It came out way better than I even expected, I think it looks really professional! (Thank you Michaels for having the supplies last minute...Hehe )





I found out with this project that E6000 Jewelry & Bead doesn't exactly like to play nice with smooth, finished leather. Had to work with it a bit to get it to do what I wanted, but it seems to be sticking quite permanently now and that braid certainly is NOT coming undone any time soon! Shoot, now I want one.

Thanks! I'm really glad it came out the way it did, I was almost worried about the rings on it coming out too girly but I think the finish on it made it okay. :)

I would TOTALLY buy one of these! I've been looking for a place to get one of Henny's hair. Would you ever sell these?

was it all your own idea, or did they have some kind of "kit"? And the brass pieces? Did you make them or they came ready made?

It's very nice and masculine!

Tiny, It was various pieces that I put together with a general concept in mind. I was originally thinking I wanted to do more of a leather cuff, but I really liked the rolled leather and think it's better with this size braid. The leather piece was cut to a standard size, but if I start doing more of these I'm going to see if I can get longer lengths in order to customize them further. Also wanting to try using studs as details as opposed to the beads, or maybe find some that I can dangle charms off of... Oh, the possibilities!
