Braided horse hair jewelry adds a fine touch to your Western ensemble. Many equestrians also use this type of accessory to remind them of their most loved sport. Bracelets are the most popular types of accessories that use braided horse hair. With its highly durable, fashionable, natural and recyclable material, horsehair jewelry can make an excellent addition to your accessory collection. You do not even need to spend money to own one. You can braid horse hair on your own and make it into fine jewelry. Things You'll Need
- Regular shampoo
- 1 bundle of 24 to 36 strands of horse hair, around 6 to 10 inches long
- Rubber bands
1. Wash and comb your horse hair thoroughly. Wash the horse hair before you start braiding it. Use regular shampoo to wash the hair and rinse it well with water. Arrange your horse hair in a long and even swatch after cleaning and combing and secure an end with your rubber band.
2. Separate the horse hair to make three equal portions. Create a section for each shade if you are using more than one color of horse hair. Take the two outside sections with each hand and leave the middle section long and flat for it to serve as a guide while you braid your bracelet. At this point, you should have around 8 to 12 strands of horse hair for every section.
3. Braid your horse hair together following an over-and-under pattern. Cross your hair's left section over its middle portion and cross its right section over the other portion that you started on the left and was placed in the middle.
4. Repeat the previous step until you are able to complete a braid. You should be weaving the two sections outside and around your horse hair's middle section in order to create the smooth and small braid. Secure your horsehair braid's loose end using your rubber band as soon as you have reached your horse hair's end.
