Ring Tuum - a ring for strong equestrian hands

Like the ring Amate, the ring Tuum is also very simple.
It´s wide and massive, the total width of the ring is 8.8 cm.

Ribbon style 'solid'

The  ribbon, 6 mm wide, shows off the pattern beautifully. Any
ribbon style looks good with this design.

                        "Getting the ring meant
                                   so much to me..."

Ribbon style 'flash'

Although massive and and wide, the ring is comfortable to
wear: it´s convex inside.

Ribbon style 'mountain peak'

    "It slips on your finger so easily!"

Ribbon style 'arrow head'

The ring Tuum has been a popular wedding band among the
equestrian fiancés. 

There is also a plenty of space for the engravings.


                                         "I do..."

Ribbon style 'broad stripe'

The ring Tuum is perfect for muscular hands.

We often hear the equestrian women complaining about their big
hands or thick fingers. That is just pointless!

You have beautiful, working, strong hands that can lead 500 kg
of horse exactly anywhere you wish. Be proud and just
choose the design strong and pretentious enough...

Ribbon style 'custom'

Christmas Treats for Horses (and Dogs)

Christmas time is the time of joy, friendship, warmth, peace and abundance - all the things that pets enjoy as well, all year around! The horses or dogs might not have a glue what is going on, but for us, humans, Christmas time means more. 

Jenny Nystöm

























Taking extra care of domestic animals, wild animals, even elves, has been included in the Finnish Christmas tradition. In general they have been treated by indulging them with better food and delicacy.


Banana treats

7.5 dl of whole wheat flour
4.5 dl of muesli
5 malted bananas
2 dl of water
4 tablespoons of muskots
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp honey


Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Cut the dough into a 5 mm plate and cut the dough into the shape of your desired biscuits. Bake at 170 ° C for 30-35 min.


                                              "Delicious and easy"


Rudolf Koivu



Oat treats

2.5 dl oat flakes
75 g margarine or butter
a small crumb of buljong cube
4 dl of hot, boiled water
2 dl low lactose milk powder
2 dl potato flour
1 beaten egg
7.5 dl graham flour


Make the broth and mix the oat flakes and margarine into the liquid. Allow the mixture to cool and mix in a mixture of milk powder and beaten egg. Mix the potato flakes with dense water and add them to the dough. Finally add little graham flour with good stirring and make the dough stiff. Cut the dough into a plate and cut into pieces with hamburger molds.
Bake at 175 ° C for about 50 min. Biscuits cure when cooled.


                                "Horses belong to Christmas!"

About the Ring Amate


The ring Amate is actually the basis of the whole ring collection.
It´s simple, slender and shows the horse hair ribbon beautifully.

Ribbon style 'mountain peak'

In the ring Amate the ribbon is 3 mm wide, the total width
of the ring is 5.8 mm.

If your horse´s tail is monochrome, it doesn´t matter:
Horse hair is dim shiny like linen or silk; it looks beautiful.

   "It´s just perfect... Like my horse!"

Ribbon style 'solid', black

 Depending on the colors you find in your horse´s tail and the
ribbon style you choose, it always looks different and unique.

Ribbon style 'road'

The ring Amate is available in silver, gold and white gold.

In the picture below you can see that the inner side of the ring
is slightly convex. That makes it more comfortable to wear. High
edges protect the most valuable part - the ribbon.

Ribbon style 'arrow head'

If you wish to wear the ring daily we recommend gold or white gold.
Silver is soft and gets easily worn out in daily use.

Bracelet Faune For Lucy


Stephanie wanted to give something special for her good friend, Lucy, for her 16th birthday. This is what she wrote us:

"Dear Nanna,

The bracelet arrived safely and is beautiful!I

I have known Lucy for nearly six years now and despite the huge age difference (I am 33!) we are great friends and regularly go riding and to horse shows together. I´m giving her the bracelet for her 16th birthday. 

I have loved your bracelets since I bought one made from my own horse over ten years ago! 
Since receiving the bracelet we have found out  Jester sadly had to be put to sleep as he was taken with grass sickness :(.

Love, Stephanie"





























Freddie, Lucy’s first pony. 
As a family favourite he will stay with her until the end of his days.























Lucy’s second horse, Jack, a cheeky fun loving chestnut that sadly lacked the talent to take Lucy further.























Lucy’s third horse Jester. Very talented and the pair was great together, but Lucy needed to progress onto bigger horses.






















Cooper
Lucy’s latest acquisition. They have just started shows together and will be competing at 1.20 m classes this summer.


All these horses, memorable and dear for Lucy,  are now with her every day
in this bracelet Faune woven with the hair strands of them all.

"Hi, Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you once again for the beautiful work you did on Lucy's bracelet. She was thrilled to receive it and threatened to cry but came through it with lots of big smiles. Definitely a great memento of her horses past and present. Many Thanks, Steph"

Something special for Lucy

"Diamonds are forever..."


Many of us cut some hair of our horses main or tail to have a hair bundle as a keepsake of our beloved equine company. Long tail hair can be turned into a fine jewellery by nannasalmi, but did you know, that your horse´s hair (or ashes) can be turned into a gemstone, a cremation gemstone, too?
What is a cremation gemstone?
Cremation gemstones can be made of only a few grams of hair or a few hundred grams of ashes. The result is a "memory diamond”.
The body or hair of any living creature contains ca. 18% carbon, whilst diamonds are pure carbon. To turn hair or ashes into a gemstone takes some technology, whereas natural diamonds are minerals that form underground over billions of years.
In the first stage of the process the biogenic material is chemically prepared. The elements are obtained from the biogenic material in question, be it ash or hair. Because these elements vary from horse to horse they represent the uniqueness of every horse. After this the elements are prepared to allow a crystal to grow from them.

                                                   "Looks amazing!"
The gemstone is created in 2000 °C. The extracted elements are integrated into the gemstone's lattice structure. This process takes from 1 to 2 days, depending on its size.
Finally the professional gemstone cutters finish the stone and give raw crystal its shape.

Last fall we received an email from Austria. 
Birgit had had a gemstone made of her late Arabian´s ashes.

You don´t have to settle for ordinary...

Although the company offered the possibility to have the gemstone setted in an ordinary piece of jewellery, Birgit wished to use the stone in a very special jewellery.
We thought that the idea was fantastic: a gemstone and the ribbon together,
what a touching and wonderful keepsake!

Thank you very much, the cooperation was a pleasure for me! Thank you so much for everything."

Heart to Heart, You and Your Horse




She walks in Beauty, like the night
Of Cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
meet in her aspect and her eyes.

She Walks in Beauty,” by Lord Byron





i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me if your doing, my darling)

”i carry your heart with me” by E.E. Cummings






“Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken”

From ”Sonnet 116” by William Shakespeare


original collection by nannasalmi since 2000


I love thee as I love the tone
Of some soft-breayhing flute
Whose soul is wak´d for me alone,

When all beside is mute.

I love thee” Eliza Acton
