Horsehair Bracelet

These bracelets are made with a four-part braid and black hair from Martha's horses. For another horsehair craft, try our Horsehair Tassel.

Tools and Materials

Waxed twine
Jewelry findings
Glue cement

  1. Follow braiding instructions. Braid a long section of horsehair, and tie tightly with twine at ends, every 6 to 8 inches.
  2. Cut between 2 ties to create the pieces for your bracelet.
  3. Dab glue cement onto both snipped ends of horsehair and inside the end caps. Insert hair into blackened end caps.
  4. Use pliers to attach a jump ring to each end cap before attaching the clasp.

Note: I used metal blackener on our brass and silver findings. Follow manufacturer's instructions.
