USA Handmade Headstall Conchos

I read all the warnings above and they are absolutely right. I sell at eBay and 3 other places, and I only use PayPal. I set out today thought to find a place where I could sell my horse stuff and talk 'horse' at the same time. I also have a few other horse related items but mostly I'll be putting my handmade conchos here as I make them. I tool them myself and only add vintage 'bling' Like Swarovski rhinestones. Please check out my feedback as a seller at eBay and my items as well if you want. I'm housebound most of the time and this has become a passion I'm moving my horse in May and it set off a frenzy of selling things I have I'm not going to use, thus the additional items. I scan most of my things because I can't take a photo to save my life.
Black Show Bridle with bit $25.00 plus shipping
Blue and pink conchos 12.99 plus shipping
Blue wooden and rhinestone conchos 15.99 plus shipping
Blue StateLine Tack Slinky $9.99 plus shipping
Bronze slotted conchos $9.99 plus shipping
Brown and silver conchos 12.95 plus shipping
Brown harness leather show bridle 25.00 plus shipping
Chin strap 4.95 plus shipping
Antique work bridle 30.00 plus shipping
Tooled leather conchos with antique carved horses as cabochons $25.00 plus shipping
Red StateLine Tack slinky $9.99 plus shipping
Silver leather conchos with 925 sterling horse cabochons 15.99

I haven't tried to compare my prices on my conchos because there isn't anything like them out there. I found some round ones with the roundels tooled done in a leather shop, and left natural. I take in to account the cost of the conchos, the vintage materials I buy, and lastly my time. I don't have a leather shop, I have an end table. I do everything to these myself here in my house, the tooling, the painting, or dying, adding the bling. I'm sure there are cheaper conchos but you will not find another set like these anywhere. If you have certain colors you're interested in to match your tack, I'll try and accommodate you if I can. The other stuff will just be on here until it sells.

What size are the state line slinky shirts? Thanks
    04-17-2011, 02:44 PM
Oh, I'm sorry, they are both large. These are used but in good shape, the blue on has some loose threads that need to be cut. But they are really pretty, sparkly, light shirts great for summer shows. Thanks for writing

Do they come in pairs?
    04-18-2011, 09:34 AM
Oh yes, they are matching pairs, well as much as a handmade thing can match. Thanks for writing.

Sorry guys, the black bridle is sold, thanks

Sorry guys, the Antique and the Brown show bridle are sold. Will have a new pair of conchos on today that I used a Pair of Singed Juneau earrings on. I hope they turn out good, I'm excited.

2 new sets of leather conchos, honestly gorgeous

These are just gorgeous. I hate to say that about my own work but they are. I tooled the roundels and painted them silver to make the seed pearls on the vintage earrings pop. And the blue couldnít have matched the blue enamel leaves any better if Iíd had the paint professionally mixed. You will not see another set of headstall conchos like this anywhere. I put in a blank one just like I started with this morning so you could see the work that goes into these conchos. $15.99 plus shipping

These are pretty darn nice too, and the hardest Iíve made so far. They are tooled at the ends of the vintage enamel and rhinestone earring cabochons, and had beautiful Swarovski red rhinestones on the sides. The cabochons sit so high the light didnít really reflect on the red rhinestones but they are very sparkly. $15.99 plus shipping

This is my leather working 'bench.'

Well when I first start, and I haven't already used a tool, laid it down and can't find it because I'm sitting on it. I have the leather dye dauber in the bathroom, my paint and dye on a desk you can't see, use a hammer with a cloth on it held by a pony tail holder so I don't damage my tools because my mallet isn't here yet. I have fancy trays I dye, color and glue in.....cottage cheese tops. But I have fun.
Oh I'm going to be listing some horse pins later in case someone collects vintage jewelry, etc.
