A “Dala Horse” is a traditional, carved wooden statue of a horse.  Dala Horses have been around for centuries and originate from the Swedish province of Dalarna.  The Dala Horse has a sentimental place in the hearts of many Scandinavians. Even today, the Swedish wooden horse represents qualities such as strength, faithfulness, wisdom, and dignity.

The Dala Horse handwoven bracelet incorporates natural horse hair entwined with high quality 10% sterling silver coils.  Reindeer leather for the body of my bracelets is available in many colours. I use lead-free pewter thread which contains 10% silver for extra strength and luster. To finish the pewter/silver threads, I have developed my own unique patina to add a vintage antique feel, or you can  choose to leave the silver pewter brighter and not apply a patina. The antler buttons are handcrafted and are made from naturally shed reindeer antlers.  As an alternative to antler buttons, pewter buttons are also available.

Horsehair is available in natural shades of black, chestnut, and blond
