HN Holiday Gift Guide: Woven Beads Browbands

Looking for a totally unique gift for a horsey friend? (Or yourself–hey, we don’t judge!) Stacey Kimmel-Smith shares her latest Etsy find.

Top: Silver-lined red/green/crystal arrows Woven Beads Browband, $90

From Stacey:

Holiday shopping for horse people has never been easier–take a look at these unique browbands from Pat Sutherland, who has sites featuring her hand-woven creations on and Facebook.

They may look delicate, but they’re sturdy and meant for everyday use. Pat uses jewelry quality glass beads (over 1,000 for some designs!) attached to a polypropelene web backing, using UV ray resistant outdoor thread. The browband does not stretch or absorb water, and 1 1/2″ loops at each end fit most crownpieces. Pat has been doing these browbands for 20 years and she says, “I’ve never lost so much as a bead.”

She has over 100 browbands on her site, and she does custom and charm-adorned browbands as well. Costs range from $60ish to $100. Christmas gift wrapping is free for the asking. If desired, mention it in the comments section of your order.
