I made a Bracelet from my horse Shamus tail hair in the September following his death with much practise, books from the library and still wear it to this day. (He died 8.7.2010). having his hair, wearing him feels like his spirit is with me all the time. It eased my upset. This gave life to what is now my full time work Kemp Horsehair Jewellery
I learnt to ride at Cringleford Riding School in Norwich owned by Paula Sykes (Pat Smythe) head groom. In 1984 I left school to became one of the few lucky Riding Instructress under Paula’s wings so the phenomenal knowledge & experiences were passed on.
My handsome one in million horse Shamus became forsale when I was 30 yrs old…life really had begun for me, at the tender age of 21 I thought I would have a few years with him and made the most of everyday. Sadly PTS at 34. I was devastated, distraught and beside myself with a broken heart and many tears rolling down my face. This prompted me to have him close to me at all times…but how? With Kemp Horsehair Jewellery you need not take it off, wear your item in the shower, bath, bed, a night out, gardening, work and of course whilst Horse Riding.
My own personal journey loosing all 4 horses that I owned gives YOU confidence that your special friends hair is totally looked after. As soon as the hair arrives I cross check it with the order placed, arrival date is written on the order form along with a description of the hair and colour band so hair is never muddled with other orders, this attention to detail is my personal touch and accompanied by quality 925 Sterling Silver ends, clasps, BEADS and CHARMS and various other items with Resin too.
