A specially chosen gift at Christmas for a loved one made using a much loved pet is the most precious thing. Can you imagine the smile created by opening a gift box on the big day. With family and friends all seeing how truly unique, different, with a special thought had been found in one of my beautiful handmade keepsakes. Kemp Horsehair Jewellery is both strong, pure quality and wonderful to receive let alone give at this festive time.
My work is rewarding. Sad at times. Animals going to rainbow bridge is heartbreaking. Our joyous times, laughter, smiles, photographs we hold in our thoughts, our hearts, our memories. Kemp Horsehair Jewellery designs have been created with this mind. I too have been through the dreadful decision of loosing my little darlings, my fur baby, my first, my one in a million so I know the feeling is just awful. No words can describe the gut wrenching feeling. Putting an animal to sleep is an underestimated action required at some point of every responsible owner. We hug them. We kiss them. We cuddle them. We feed them. We wash them, we pay for them. In more ways than just the financial commitment they are part of our families. Having a piece of jewellery made to be worn can be admired and treasured giving us such a heartening warm experience. Spiritual healing even. I accommodate multiple orders from one or more persons. Together with multiple hair sent to me. (most in one bracelet to date is 9 tails to be incorporated.)
Skills and patience I have learnt through many years of creating these gorgeous pieces. I am proud to offer customers my expertise in what looks and feels right as a gift. Being a leading Jeweller in this bespoke field I look forward this years orders .

So getting ready for Christmas 2019 orders seems mad but it is sadly true. Where does the time go?. I can not believe it is looming. Adverts on television and social media have started so I am soldering stock ends and clasps, stocking up on shampoo, conditioner, resin, plaiting bands, envelopes ready for that time again.
I love my work and enjoy creating beautiful keepsakes for people all year round but Christmas is so special. I love the fact that men call and email with orders and my help to purchase a Horsehair keepsake for their loved ones at home whether the wife, partner, finance, family member or friend and certainly a child who is pony mad.

Brilliant products. I had a bracelet made for my mum after losing her boy. It’s absolutely stunning and made perfectly with love and attention. Arrived very quickly. Very impressed.
Absolutely stunning thank you so much
Just catching up on the Free KEYRING offer of July to Facebook customers proved a guaranteed way to get a stunning piece of jewellery instead of a sale.
I wonder what the next offer or deal I will be doing next time. With Christmas orders around the corner in the next couple of months. Decisions, Decisions. With summer ending and Autumn now with us my handcrafted equestrian jewellery is being taking in a different direction. I have been setting some stunning pendants and brooches with real Amber being sent to me.
Preparing for a fantastic offer to celebrate summer finally arriving…. FREE KEYRING WITH EVERY ORDER in July.
It must be stated on the order form which keyring customers require. Whether on my PDF easy to use order form in step 3 of 4 or on a piece of paper. ( I have had a couple of orders on post-it-notes) as long as details of order are clearly stated and a contact number available then I can create a beautiful keepsake Jewellery piece to be worn, loved, admired and enjoyed using Horsehair, human hair, pet fur or even whiskers and shedded reptile skin! ASHES also can be catered for. With summer beaming upon us it really is the time to celebrate with a glass of vino, G and T or a pint of your favourite tibble whilst deciding which beautiful design you are having from yours truly at Kemp horsehair jewellery
I got them this morning. Thank you so much. They are beautiful. xx
It’s arrived this morning – absolutely brilliant and thanks so much for the keyring, it’s fantastic.
Not sure where that is. Is it just me or is time passing far too quickly?
My order diary was pretty full and after changing my website a little bit in April and adding some items May flew by.
Bespoke is still very much many of my orders at the moment, which I LOVE. SLK7 is proving very popular especially with customers sending their own beads to create the knot look. Unlike some of my competitors I do NOT charge for this service. Washing and preparing the hair is also free with yours truly.
A change to my website was stressful in between making beautiful keepsakes.
It is now done…. Better photos, more photos showing the stunning quality I provide in every piece I make. As I have gone through the loss and heartbreak of loosing a much loved family member both 4 legged and 2 legged I make every piece with TLC and as if I will be wearing and enjoying it.
I have been pretty busy for April with stocking up on soldering ends and clasps as all my items are to avoid sharp edges from jump rings that can catch on clothing or other items of Jewellery including watches. (remember horsehair is biodegradable as written in my website and will not last forever and it is snagging/breakable but many years of enjoyment in each piece I create.)
With new designs and stock items being designed & created there is no time to rest. Having said that I have had to occasionally been pretty poorly recently which I hope will be coming to end very soon with a operation. Until then as a woman I will still be plaiting, braiding and creating lovely keepsakes for you lovely lot.
“Bracelet made as an exam good luck gift for my daughter from her amazing super pony Alfie – excellent service and beautifully made – highly recommended 🙂 “
Thanks again. Ferne Watts
February seems a bit of a blur. I expect I am not the only one to feel this. We all know it’s a short month but bloomin heck…..not enough hours in a day is an understatement and a half!
Many fantastic enquiries for bespoke including with 9ct Gold.
My little fingers have been up against it plaiting mane. It’s so fiddly to work with trying to make it look the same throughout the whole piece of keepsake jewellery. When people plait their horse for a show, it starts off thick at the neck and as you crack on there is hardly any hair in your hands to hold let alone plait. So this obstacle has to be overcome by Horsehair jewellery makers with a few swear words!.
Very rewarding when it all works and another beautiful piece of Jewellery is collected or popped in the post from an owners much loved horse.
A usual January after a mad busy December is as a rule quiet. So pleased to say…Not this year. 😍
With more bespoke inquiries that turned into orders I have been ticking along nicely.
Sadly a Silversmith colleague was taken far too young. A lovely lady that inspired many will be greatly missed.
I juggled work around many friends dogs to look after whilst they had family to visit, puppies to view and purchase, funerals, handmade craft workshops and personal lives to be covered. I love being with four legged loving animals. My girls are so lucky to have me working from home and they had many of their mates visit.
With detangling the knots from some Horsehair sent that resembled a bird nest & plenty of plaiting, resin to mix January 2019 flew by.
Slowly but enthusiastically I am introducing some new items to my collection thanks to customers requirements and masses of hair supplied to create some superb keepsakes.
Busy, busy busy. Hands tingling tells me a very busy December. With Horsehair everywhere it is the perfect festive period for me. Handmaking all the orders makes me feel like Santa but with no Elf to help me.
Many #bespoke designs which I love creating. #Resin colours mixed. Coffee was flowing. Felt like a machine at times on auto pilot. Up early, bed late to complete them all. Receiving such beautiful emails and texts thanking me for all my hard work. I love my work…. Sad at times as the horses, dogs, cats and humans are no longer on earth but in people’s hearts and #memories.
Camera ready, photo light box on standby to get a permanent reminder of the beautiful work I have created.
Tools down on the 24th as all orders complete in time for #CHRISTMAS #gifts. Postman was relieved I’m sure. A few couriers delivered Horsehair and of course hand delivered orders kept arriving. It’s so lovely meeting customers and to hear all about their much loved neddies and families. To see the smile on collection day is priceless.
So another mad month of December is complete. Turkey cooking, sprouts boiling, mulled wine flowing, sloe gin being enjoyed by many (not me)!, daft games being set up and then its present opening time. Whether in a organza bag or gift box I read lots of happy tears were shared with sentimental smiles of the creation now being worn or used. Feeling close to the animal or human hair or ashes supplied for each individuals order.
Whilst I’m having a magical day there are many surprises being enjoyed by the lucky reciepant of a Kemp Horsehair Jewellery piece. Purchased with love. Handmade with love. Given with love. Christmas is for love, life, memories, fun and I am so very very proud to be part of so many people’s special day.
Here’s to a prosperous and HAPPY 2019.
Bespoke is most definately the fashion for November’s orders from myself. I am widening my designs to include any animal hair and even Ashes whether human or animal.
Loving the creative side of customers requests and ideas I have dived in and developed a real knack coming up with very different and unique beautiful Horsehair, cow hair, dog hair, cat hair and human ASHES Jewellery.
All my jewellery is made with a personal touch. Every piece is made with a tender touch as though it is for myself. Providing quality, fashionable pieces to be admired and envied.
Christmas is looming by the hour and there are gonna be some VERY happy people out there unwrapping their stunning pieces of Kemp Horsehair Jewellery.
Some feedback for you…my husband Phil LOVES the tooth and hasn’t taken it off since Friday when I gave it to him. He thinks it looks very “rock and roll”. Thanks so much, it was a great birthday gift.
On a similar note, thanks too for the pendant made out of my three boys tails! It’s wonderful and very original, a fabulous keepsake and lovely piece of jewellery. Seems like my husband and I have kept you very busy!
Thanks again – we know where to come when we’re looking for something special!
Very best wishes Sam Lay
So part of October had me working on an amazing new item for a returning customer, a horse’s wolf tooth and make it beautiful!. My customer describes it as being Ugly!
It was for her husband who had been so fond of one their neddies and could I set it as a pendant. After a few design drawings and emails with ideas, one was picked. So like one of Snow whites dwarfs off to work I went. Hammering, tapping the silver, using pliers to shape, soldering bits and pieces together and ureka it was made. Thrilled with the piece I received a wonderful email thanking me for my work. A magic month. So YES it is as easy to have your own very individual design made as any on my Kemp horsehair website.
Hi Sam – just wanted to thank you so much for the fantastic service and beautiful bracelet that you made for me – bought it as a present and the recipient was absolutely delighted – such a great pleasure to deal with someone who goes out of their way to make everything right – i’ll definitely come back to you next time I want a piece of horse hair jewellery – thank you.
With regards Diane Towers
My bracelet arrived!! it’s beautiful. Thanks again. Jenny
Kemp Horsehair jewellery is simply exquisite, not only for the products supplied but for the amazing customer support offered at every stage’ I purchased 3 of the Kemp Horsehair bracelets as Christmas presents for my 2 daughters and myself . I also wanted 3 necklaces, a particular style that I had seen elsewhere that Kemp Horsehair didn’t have on their website. Following only one telephone conversation and an email picture I was assured the type of necklace I required would be possible, (and at half of the cost I had seen elsewhere!).I would recommend this company to anyone who requires this type of jewellery as the service and goods that are provided are simply outstanding. What is also wonderful is that you can actually speak to the person (Sam) who makes the jewellery, making the whole experience personal, as when dealing with your horses precious hair this is important.I truly couldn’t be happier with the goods and service provided to me.Helen Busby, Billington Farm, Billington, Stafford
The girls absolutely loved the jewellery, they are all perfect fits, we are all so very very pleased with them and can’t thank u enough for pulling out all the stops to get them back to us before Christmas!None of us have taken the bracelets off yet!!Must be our lucky charms as at pony club Christmas show today, Asta had a first and 2 seconds and Lilly had 2 seconds!!Helen Busby

I am just gobsmacked of how lovely the bracelet you made me for my daughter is. It arrived in the post this morning and I cried. My daughter is on holiday at the moment and will be amazed…this horse will sadly be PTS so it will be so precious to her you have done a beautiful job. Thank you so so much.
Mrs Weatherley Cannock, Staffs
Dear Sam..Have been so thrilled with the bracelets you’ve made me in the past. Ordering two more for my God Daughters this time!
I am very excited to tell you all I am adding rings to my designs.
Rings will be added very soon
I am ordering this for my sister and need to say which length the bracelet needs to be. Her horse sadly had to be PTS so this is a keepsake for her. The last one I ordered was slightly longer as for my daughter as a surprise 16th Birthday present. She was absolutely delighted with it and hasn’t taken it off since I gave it to her in April.
Thank you so much, Rebecca

I love it Sam and your prices are very reasonable too. I can’t afford expensive horsehair jewellery, so yours worked out really well and the quality is so good.
Blimey I know my craftsmanship is good but even I am chuffed with myself just lately. I have had some amazing beautiful comments from satisfied customers.
Repeat business is just the best recommendation possible.
