I am Mandy Williams, owner and designer at Mandy’s memories. I am in my 40’s married to a wonderful man with 2 children, 2 cats and a horse called Luci who is the most wonderful horse ever.
About 3years ago a friends horse sadly passed away and she decided to get a bracelet made from her horses tail hair as a keepsake. I thought it was lovely but decided to get one done from Luci’s tail whilst I still had her with me as I knew if the moment arrived when I have to say goodbye to her I’d be too emotional to remember to snip a bit of hair off. But, like most horse owners I never seemed to have any spare funds to spend on myself and so decided to make my own. So, a few failed attempts later and a horse with a considerably thinner tail, I eventually had an item I felt proud of. A couple of ladies on my yard were quite impressed with my efforts and soon I was making key rings and bracelets for all the other horse owners at the yard, it’s really nice to create a “living memory”but the real honour is when someone trusts you with all they have left be it a single hair plucked from the stable door frame, a few strands taken from a brush or the whole tail.
More than once it was mentioned that I should start a business. So, I’ve spent the last couple of years learning and perfecting my techniques and sourcing good quality beads and findings to be able to bring you a beautiful bespoke but affordable memorial keepsake service without compromising service or quality.
Please feel free to browse my gallery for ideas and inspiration or contact me to discuss your requirements. I do not offer a shopping cart as this is not a mail order company, it is a truly personal bespoke service which I feel requires human interaction to ensure you get the memorial you want.
Thank you for reading and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
