Bracelets Shoe-shoe and Cedric

The first bracelet Nanna Salmi designed was 'Mistral', the one with the bits. 
But one bracelet is not a collection, a new one was needed... 
It was quite obvious: a bracelet with a horse shoe.

Nanna went to the stables and looked for horse shoe that she could use as a model. 
She found a little pony shoe, took it to the studio and started
sketching the design. She didn´t want it to be quite realistic
but a little bit stylised. She still has got the pony shoe.

Usually the process is much longer, but this time only two prototypes had to be made: 
already the second one was perfect.

'Shoe-shoe' is one of the most popular designs, especially in Ireland.
A golden 'Shoe-shoe' was the first item Nanna Salmi had made for herself.
Yes, it was made with her mare´s tail hair and she still has got it after
more than fifteen years.

'Cedric' is a version of the 'Shoe-shoe'. In 'Shoe-shoe' the ribbon is 6 mm, 
In 'Cedric' 9 mm.

We think that one reason why 'Shoe-shoe' and 'Cedric' are so popular
is that they are not so obviously "horsey".
These bracelets look elegant and timeless. A young girl can wear
them as well as an adult woman. They look great with jeans and blouse 
as well as with a classic tweed or leather jacket.
