A unique gift and a stunning addition to any country or equestrian home. We loved the idea of creating something from horseshoes that could represent a members of a family. Blend the past with the present with this gorgeous pair of Horseshoe Hearts. One of our mini Horseshoe Hearts is riveted with farriers nails to a large Horseshoe Heart to make this substantial piece. Personalise it with hand stamped names of your family, to celebrate a new arrival, or in remembrance of a special friend.
The large heart began life as a larger horse’s shoe, being at least 16cm wide and of much heavier weight than in our Original Horseshoe Hearts. The Mini Heart is created from a small pony shoe measuring 12cm or under in width. Each shoe has clips and nails removed, is heated in the forge and hand cleaned to to clear rust, dirt and grit away while retaining marks of wear.
Both shoes are then painstakingly hand forged (particularly the large one!) with great care. They are then buffed and polished and personalised where requested before being riveted together.
Both are treated in a clear sealant to protect from rust and hang from Jute Plait or White Ribbon. We recommend keeping your heart indoors and away from damp. If you do keep it outside it will over time develop a patina.
As this piece requires specific sizes of horseshoes for it’s creation, we have not added the option to have it made from your own shoes. However if you do have a small pony shoe and large horse shoe of your own it could be possible. Please drop us a message via a contact form to discuss.
