There are several different braid styles to choose from. If there is a braid that you want and I do not know how to do it, I love to learn new braids.
Conchos & Pendants
There are several different concho styles to choose from. If there is a design you want, please email me. I do custom engraving. Names, brands logos welcome. Please see
Custom Silversmithing Orders for more details.
Colors- If you do not have a horse, you will need to choose a color. There are several colors to choose from. Black, Brown, Sorrel, White, Gray, Mixed, Blue, Green, Orange,
Green and Purple.
Clasp & End Caps
There are several different clasps and end caps. The IM Silver End Caps are NOT for Sale to other jewelry makers.
Length- Length is the most important part of the special order process. I am asking for the TOTAL finished length. Remember it is easier to make the piece shorter then it is
to make it longer. Please be aware that I will make the jewelry to the length that you provide on the order form. I ask for the TOTAL length, which includes the braid, end caps and
clasp. The TOTAL length should be what you want the finished piece to be. If you provide a length and the finished piece is to short, I will not be able to make it longer. So
measure twice! If you need the pieces resized there is a $5.00 charge plus $6.00 shipping back to you.
Necklaces, measure around the neck to the place where you would like your necklace to lay. That is the measurement that I need.
Bracelets, measure at the largest part of the wrist. Then add an additional 1/2" to that. For example, if your wrist measures 6 1/2", your bracelet measurement will be 7". The
very best method to getting a good measurement, is measure a bracelet that you have and like now.
Women 7 to 7 1/4"
Men 8" to 8 3/4"
Payment- On special orders I will take photos of the completed item and send them to you. If you approve and are happy, then you pay. I will send an invoice through
PayPal, you DO NOT need a PayPal account to pay this invoice. If you are uncomfortable paying this invoice via PayPal, I can manually key in your card number, however
these transactions will be subject to a $5.00 processing fee. All major credit cards...Visa, Master Card, Discover and America Express, are accepted through the PayPal invoice.
I accept cashier or money orders, but will hold the order until the check as cleared my bank. After payment is received I will send you the item that you ordered and the left over
hair from your horse.
Please print and fill out order form. This is not a must, but it may help get all the important information needed to make you perfect keepsake piece of jewelry.
Horsehair Jewelry by IM Silver
Please only send TAIL hair. Mane hair is not as strong as TAIL hair and will not last the same as TAIL hair. I am unable to make jewelry out of mane hair. I can make tassel key
chains, tassel earrings of memory tail tassels with the mane hair, but no jewelry. Send the longest tail hair possible. DO NOT send hair that is cut to the length of the finished
place of Jewelry. I need room to braid.
Please be aware that I will make the jewelry to the length that you provide on the order form. I ask for the TOTAL length, which includes the braid, end caps and clasp. The
TOTAL length should be what you want the finished piece to be. If you provide a length and the finished piece is to short, I will not be able to make it longer. So measure twice! If
you need the pieces resized there is a $5.00 charge plus $6.00 shipping back to you.
Please be advised that the jewelry that I make is HAIR, it can take some wear and tear, but is somewhat fragile. I will be happy to repair finished pieces that have pulled out of the
end caps at no charge, you are responsible for shipping back to you. I can not fix hair that is broken. I recommend wearing the jewelry day in and day out, I feel that the oils in
your skin help the hair stay stronger. I am not responsible if the hair becomes brittle and starts to break. I have been wearing the same necklace for 5 years and it is still in
perfect condition, with proper care your jewelry should last for several years.
Please allow 6-8 weeks for turn around on your order. I normally do not need this amount of time (I usually have orders done within a week or two). I ask for this time so that my
1st job, being a mom, may come first.
