Cool Horsehair Bracelets

Hey all :) I came up with an idea for Christmas presents for some friends, and I didn't think that they would turn out as well as they did. Just wanted to know what you guys thought of them, and if you had the chance do you think you would want to pay for something like this? I know they aren't great, but I'm looking for ideas to help pay for finals next year. My mom is taking photos for people and the money for that is going towards it too. Just thought it would be cool to make some money doing something I enjoy :) and by no means do I think I could make a living off of it lol.

The first one was from a palomino, I thought the different tones turned out pretty cool in the braid.

The second one was a little shorter because the girl has a small wrist :)

Haha, aww im sorry. I know the ends don't looked very good wrapped in wire, but I couldnt find any end caps at the local craft stores so I had to compromise.

I would love to learn how to make these, I have have seen some really nice ones but they are so expensive!
Yours look good to me !

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

Wow! I really love them. I actually love how you did the wrapped wire on the ends, it adds a creative touch to it :) How much do you charge?

I got some new end caps, had to search everywhere haha.

I still prefer the smooth over the wire, but they are much neater and actually more sturdy.
