EXAMPLE OF COMPLETE CUSTOMIZATION:

Baby Bling Custom Browband
Completely customized Baby Bling in Teal (top) and Heir to the Throne (bottom) -
Baby Bling was ordered for a yearling and Heir to the Throne for a weanling, both that are going to the World Futurity Championships. The Baby Bling teal browband is 12" long with 1" end loops. The client ordered Spring Bling, changed the bead color to Teal, and we scaled down the design with smaller beads so it would look fitting for such a young, small, little baby.

For the Heir to the Throne baby browband, the owner liked the Heir to the Throne design but those beads were too big for the 9.5" sized browband so it was customized with beads similiar in color, but smaller for a baby.

Browbands in tiny sizes start at $145.

I am always on the look out for more and new fabulous beads that are suitable for my work, so you can make suggestions!

What are vermeil beads?

Vermeil is .925 sterling silver, heavily electroplated with 10Kt fineness, or more, of yellow gold. Vermeil products carried by Custom Equine Works are usually in the 18Kt to 24Kt range of fineness. The thickness of the gold electroplate must be a minimum of 2-1/2 microns of fine gold. All Vermeil Beads are directly imported from Bali Indonesia.

What are Hill Tribe Silver beads?

Every bead and component is beautifully hand-crafted by expert silversmiths from the Hill Tribes in Thailand. Made from a higher purity silver than sterling silver, fine silver (93-99%) offers a brilliant metallic luster and a greater resistance to tarnish.

Leather Colors & How to Size

Leather for browbands, belts and dog collars can be brown, black, brown with white padding or black with white padding.

For browband size, measure from end of ear loop to end of ear loop of a current browband that fits your horse. Usually sizes run 15.5" - 17" but ANY size can be done.
