What is Equinite?

I'm sure by now you all have seen jewelry made from horse hair, but how about jewelry made from your horses hoof? Well that is what Equinite really is! Yep that's right, you can now get jewelry made from your horses hooves. I really wasn't sure this was for real when I found their Facebook Page, so I did more research and found their Business Page.  I even found a news article about the jewelry so I guess it's for real. 

Anyway I just thought it was interesting, and creative use of horse hooves, but I don't know how I'm ever going to be able to save up enough material from any of mine to have something made.   


  1. That's very cool. And pretty as well. Who knew?

  2. That's actually very cool. I get long curls of hoof cut off at a time from each horse. I wonder if that would be enough. They must sand and polish it. Hmmmm, if I sanded and polished one of the clippings, would it make a bracelet??

  3. Weird. And it only comes in one color, I suppose?
    I guess it would be neat to have once your equine is passed on, though.


  4. Lisa, they come in what ever color the hoof polishes out to be I saw one "gem" that looked similar to a tigers eye. So you could have a Striped one, a white one or a back one.
