A unique design, initially created as a bespoke piece for a customer who wanted to combine three of her own horseshoes from three different ponies into one display piece.
Each Horseshoe Heart begins as one whole horseshoe that is heated to burn away rust and then cleaned by hand to keep as many marks of wear and character as possible. Each is then hand forged into a heart shape. It is then polished and treated in a sealant to protect from rust in an interior environment.
This design brings a wonderful opportunity to perhaps combine shoes from different ponies or horses together into one keepsake piece. The largest shoe would have to sit centrally and it helps if the outer shoes are similarly sized. Personalisation can be placed over the arches of each heart. You may choose to have the horse’s names and dates on each or for a special gift this piece offers a lot of room for a bespoke and heartfelt personalised gift that could contain a longer message or phrase of your choosing.
The central heart hangs from a jute plait with the top and bottom hearts sit at a slight angle linked along side.
A beautiful and unusual piece that is sure to be a conversation piece and will last a lifetime and beyond.
Clean with a soft dry lint free cloth. Keep away from perfumes and household detergents.
