One of our Original Horseshoe Hearts flanked each side with a used, “lucky” horseshoe. A beautiful addition to a family home, perhaps personalise with family members names and dates. Or use your own shoes from a precious horse or horses!

The Process

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 linked together and welded in place.

Meticulous attention is then paid to the buffing and rasping of the piece to remove any sharp edges and bring up a gunmetal silver shine. A clear sealant to protect from rust is then applied. We recommend displaying your ‘Love & Luck’ Heart indoors and protected from the elements.

As a Keepsake of a Special Horse

As horse owners and lovers ourselves we know that sometimes you would like to have a creation made from your own horse’s shoes. This may be from the shoes worn at a significant show or event as a lasting reminder, they may make a lovely personal gift for someone who adores their equine friend, or you may like to have them as a sentimental keepsake after a much loved horse has passed away.

This ‘Trio’ piece could be made from either front or hind shoes, perhaps even from a combination of shoes from different horses. So long as the sizes of shoe were similar this piece would work wonderfully as a reminder of more than one precious four foot. One horseshoe makes one Horseshoe Heart. You can personalise your piece with names or dates if you would like. Please note sometimes we may need to apply personalisation where space allows dependant on the type and size of shoes rather than in a specific place.

The majority of our pieces are hand forged and crafted to order. Please allow up to 14 days for dispatch of your order.
