Hand braided horse hair decorative pin*, part of The Burnished Horse signature Farriers Nail collection.
Japanese square braid set into an elegant double ended Farriers Nail in sterling silver, approximately 55 mm x 7 mm. Hand made to order Couture using your own horse's hair or Ready to Wear using hair that we provide.
Hallmarked for quality by the London Assay Office and beautifully gift boxed including a presentation card with the name of the horse(s). Optional engraving.
* can be used as a stock pin but this is clearly not one of the traditional “kilt pin” style designs with the very thick pins. The fastening will go through a stock but must be inserted gently and progressively. Take care when fixing onto clothing not to bend the pin as sterling silver is a comparatively soft metal. Gently push the point of the pin through, one layer at a time. A stronger pin made of white gold is available at additional cost.
We also cast in yellow, white and rose gold and in platinum. Metal prices are subject to fluctuation; please email for a quotation.
Details & Options
Horse hair: A scant pencil’s width of clean full length horse hair, at least 14 cm long, is enough to make this pin. We always return any unused hair but it must fit in our envelopes so please don’t send more than needed as the excess will be discarded.
We can braid your pin with the hair of one horse or we can combine horse hair. The braid comprises 8 tiny bunches of horse hair so please specify the proportions if you would like us to combine different colours, e.g. ”4:4 black: grey” or “2:2:4 chestnut:grey:black”.
Fastening: Sterling silver or white gold pin back.
Engraving: On top of pin (max 15 characters).
Timescale: All our jewellery is truly hand made and so timescales depend on order levels. Typically it takes around 4 - 6 weeks. Please email us beforehand if you have a particular deadline and we will try to accommodate you.
