Combining horses with Christmas, sounds fabulous to us! These Horseshoe Heart Stocking Holders are the ultimate festive accessory for your mantelpiece! Hang your stockings in style this Christmas.
Our Stocking holders sit securely on the mantel and will fit mantles up to 2.5cm deep – if your mantle is deeper please add a note at check out to let us know and we will design the hook to suit. You can personalise your holder with up to 10 characters on each holder, name one for every family member! We can even made from your own shoes if you would like!
Each and every shoe we use for our creations is heated in the forge and cleaned by hand. We feel it’s important to take care over this process so as to retain as much of the natural character of the shoe as possible. Rust really does not matter so don’t worry if you have very rusty shoes that you’d like to use. Clips and nails are removed, although every now and then if a nail does seem very determined to stay put we will leave it be, it’s all part of the charm!
The Heart is skilfully hand forged from a whole horseshoe. It is not cut into two, nor then welded back together. The horseshoe stays whole, carefully worked into a heart shape with clean lines. The beauty is in it’s simplicity. Any personalisation on the shoe or heart will take place now before being welded in place onto the bottom shoe and hook.
The hook is traditionally forged over anvil with blacksmith’s scroll detail at the tip.
