Tassels are made from mane hair and can be anywhere from 3 to 5 inches in length depending on the length of the mane hair being used. The top loop of the tassel is made from a horsehair braid. The round ball at the top of the tassel is covered with horsehair using a technique called needle knots.
Tassels can be made in a variety of sizes and colors depending on your needs. Let me know what you have in mind and I can make one that fits the bill.
There are three clip styles available for tassels see the example pictures below.
Here are some examples of tassels.
They can vary quite a bit in length and fullness
depending on the length of the mane hair sent.

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.
