Hair from a horse’s tail is not just hair for a horse lover, especially when it comes from their very own equine friend. Oftentimes it is the last remaining memento of an enchanted time spent with a very special and beloved companion. As such, it deserves careful, respectful handling and the finest workmanship available. This is the driving philosophy of Silberschweif.
Combining each individual hair into the perfect braid is our highest priority. Siberschweif stands for handmade perfection and our designs allow the natural beauty of the horse hair to come to the fore, while we accentuate and refine that beauty with ageless silver and golden jewelry elements.
Jewelry from horse hair made by Silberschweif, with its noble design, is not influenced by short lived fashion fads, but, with careful handling, can retain its exquisite aura for many, many years. Such a treasure can not only provide solace for mourning the passing of a dear friend, but also, after a time, represent a personal and loving reminder of happy moments
shared with a very special companion.
We find evidence of jewelry made from hair as early as in the 16th century. The zenith of hair braiding artistry was, however, the 18th century. There are many extraordinary works of hair braiding art from this time period, that still exist today – proof of the durability of quality craftsmanship. http://www.victoriana.com/Jewelry/victorian-hair-jewelry.html
Silberschweif has been creating works of art from horse hair since 2009. Many have imitated our ideas and inspirations since then, which we take as a compliment to our ingenuity. Original Silberschweif creations remain just that; original Silberschweif creations. The craftsmanship is distinctive, unmistakable and inimitable.
