The memory box is made of the same old barn wood as the picture frames. The lid of the box is a picture frame that has a groove cut into it to place a custom made horsehair braid. The braid can be made from your special horse's tail hair or I can use tail hair that I have here. If you are sending hair for the braid please send only tail hair that is a minimum of 18" long. I will need about two finger widths of tail hair for this project.
The outside dimensions of the box are
9 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 3 1/2" and holds a
standard 5x7 picture behind glass in
the lid of the box.
Each frame has a corner concho that is available in your choice of designs. Below shows a detail of each design. The conchos are all approximately 1" to 1 1/4" and are made of pewter. The accent colored pieces are inlaid beads.
