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.
Turquoise Flower Concho
Gold Star Concho
Celtic Cross Concho
Flower Petal Concho

All of the art work that you see on this web site is custom crafted by myself. I don't have people working for me making these items. Every thing is done by hand by me. Because there's only one of me I have to schedule work as it comes in on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested in having me custom craft a special memento just for you please allow 6 to 8 weeks for your item to be completed. Larger items can take longer. If you want to check my schedule please feel free to contact me before placing your order to see how my schedule is and how long it will take to complete your order.
