Our Story

Do you have a horse shaped hole in your heart?

You’re afraid you’ll NEVER find the perfect way to keep Sonny, the most honest, gorgeous 5 year old palomino Quarter Horse of your dreams, with you every day…because he’s gone… 

And whatever you design HAS to make you feel that Sonny’s still with you, supporting you, comforting you…because you still expect to hear his whinny when you walk in the barn at feeding time. You still expect him to stretch his long, pretty head with that silly crooked star over the stall door to nuzzle the pockets of your old worn out barn jacket sniffing for his favorite peppermints. The ones you can only get from Kincaid’s, your favorite burger place.

You miss him so much it hurts.

Every. Single. Day. 

Hang in there, you are in the right place.

Hello! I am Angela and I am here to help.

I’m here to help ease the ache in your heart with the perfect piece of horse hair bracelet or jewelry or art for you and your horse (or horses!).
I’m here to help you create an extraordinary one-of-a-kind gift for yourself or someone you love.

I believe in choices.
ecause one style does not fit all.
I believe in longevity.
ecause something SO important should last a lifetime.
I believe in collaborating.
ecause uniqueness doesn’t always come from just one mind.

These are the founding principles of my artistry, and the reason Spirithorse Designs exits.

My Promise To You.

  • I promise to choose the strongest, best & varied colors of your horse’s hair to create your one-of-a-kind horse hair jewelry and art.
  • I promise to use only high quality sterling silver, fine silver and lead free pewter available.
  • I promise to create pieces that convey the essence and uniqueness of your horse (or horses!)
  • I promise to treat each and every horse with the utmost respect.
  • I promise to listen to all suggestions, comments and concerns you may have in the creation of your horse hair jewelry.
  • I promise you will be 100% in love with your horse hair jewelry and art.

Years ago, I worked for an equine surgical center and THE toughest part of my job as an office manager, was helping horse owners go through the process of letting go, and saying goodbye. It doesn’t matter if you know it’s coming or it was a tragic surprise…it’s excruciating to go through – for you for your friends, for all of us helping.

My clients would ask if I knew of any place that made horse hair jewelry, and at the time there were only a couple. The couple of places locally, that I knew would create something like that would create pieces that were more for keepsake purposes, not every day wear.

Well that wouldn’t do! I know that I would want something that I could have with me every single day. Grief sneaks up on you when you least expect it. Why couldn’t I have something to provide imediate comfort when I needed it?

So I began to research, and learn and practice and study.

I love all things Celtic in nature, especially Celtic knot work. It became the foundation of my horse hair jewelry designs because it symbolizes the infinite love and connection we feel for out horses. So it should come as no surprise that the very first bracelet I ever created was the Bella, a rectangular Celtic knot style. After all these years, it is still one of my best sellers.

The Best Advice I Can Give

Don’t wait until you have to say goodbye to have a special horse hair bracelet or jewelry created. Don’t wait until it’s too late and you are on the floor, sobbing in heart felt pain. Don’t wait until your barn bestie is beside themselves in a grief so deep they don’t even hear you comforting them. Create a wonderful and special moment of giving and love right now – so you can see and feel the joy a custom horse hair bracelet brings!

Because they will ALWAYS be our babies.

I am so very glad you are here…

“I wish all my shopping was this simple. From picking out the bracelet, hardware, sending in the horse hair, shipping and receiving of my package – thing’s couldn’t of been easier. Angela is a professional. Kept me posted on how my bracelet was coming along and got it out way before the deadline. It’s beautiful and will make my daughter very happy. I will be a repeat customer. Thank you!!” ~ Patricia K.
