Horsing around

About this design:

I absolutely love horses and recently had to let mine go due to my wedding coming up and a big move! I love the lipstick ranch pendants I have had for a while now but never really knew what to do with them. Today though, it all came together! And this is what I came up with. In honour of my 16hh boy Murphy. Miss you!

    Love the red creek jasper with the LR horse! The colors set the pendant off beautifully. Is the chain red? It’s a really cool color, almost like really deep copper.

    Thank you everyone. Yep the chain is red! I brought this wire by mistake as in the picture it looked more brown, but it actually works really well with the LR pendant :)

    Lipstick Ranch pieces are fantastic! I’ve udrf..(where did that come from?)..Try again. I used a few of them and they always get a lot of comments. I have a horse from Lipstick Ranch, too but it doesn’t have a cut out heart. Instead it has an over all floral design. I collect horses so it is a gorgeous addition to my herd. :D
