Braided Horsehair Bracelets
Horsehair has been used for centuries in violin bows, clothing and works of art. Items of braided horsehair were common in the western United States during the time of the cowboy. The material was readily available; and braided, it provides strength and durability. Braided Horsehair halters, lead ropes and other utilitarian items were very common. Out of that grew the interest in using it as jewelry. These two bracelets are typical of what might have been worn a hundred years ago.
