Standard Swishtail Bracelet Prices
It’s hard to price custom jewelry because its concept is individualization. Thus, this page is not a comprehensive price list, but a starting point. Other bracelet options — different findings (metal pieces) and different designs may also be available as well as necklaces and jewelry sets.
The prices are based upon labor and the cost of the findings. Preparing horsehair for braiding is an exacting and detail-oriented process; the findings are subject to availability from the supplier; the silver market changes daily; I know 6 braiding patterns which range from easy to difficult, and some color patterns are harder than others.
Listed below are the prices for my standard horsehair bracelets. They include an anti-tarnishing storage bag, a gift box, Indiana tax, and U.S.P.S. First Class Mail (or personal delivery for locals desiring it).
Confused? Don’t worry; we’ll sort things out when you contact me to place your order.
