I’m sensing a theme here……

I love horse shoes, the shape is appealing to me, the application – fascinating.  I have a friend who was a farrier & I enjoyed tagging along watching him work.  When I started creating jewelry, I figured the horse shoe was a all encompassing symbol of all horse people.  Doesn’t matter if you’re an English rider, a rodeo girl or a trail riding mama, the horse is what ties us all together.

Appreciating others riding disciplines is what makes a true horse lover.  I enjoy watching a kid trotting for the first time as much as watching my sister-in-law’s jumper do his thing at a Grand Prix at Spruce Meadows.

I have sprinkled horse shoes liberally throughout my work.  I have small horse shoe cut-outs on the back of pieces, the Lucky Seven rings & bracelets have been a favorite, as they got me featured in Cowboys & Indians magazine.  I haven’t done a lot of post earrings, so as I was building a family ring last week, this idea came to me.  These ones I just popped in a couple CZ’s, but it could be any birthstone or color.

I’m going to do a giveaway of a pair of these earrings with any birthstone you wish to a lucky follower on my Facebook page.  I’ll give these babies away when we get 100 followers, so share the page with friends & you’ll have a good chance of finding these in the mail!
