Winter Paint Pony

About this design:

This is my tribute to winter this year. I think we all buy some on-the-spot items when we are visiting our local craft stores, and this pony was one I picked up a while back. Although I don’t have the circumstance to own a horse, I think they are majestic creatures. I felt doing this necklace with a paint horse theme would best suit the feel of wintertime with the white beads throughout. I made the necklace longer so it can be worn with a turtleneck sweater. Keep dreaming everyone!

Components:

White Agate, Natural Agate, Magnesite. Bracelet also includes: Green Girl button, glass crystals, Czech seed beads, TierraCast ring, waxed linen, leather

    I love the idea of winter white and the way you put it all together. The pony is fabulous. You always have a very professional polished piece of jewelry..and you always have a bracelet with your necklaces. Another great design!!

    I especially love the colors in this piece. The whites kind of glow and the other colors sort of melt. The pony – perfect finishing touch.

    Thank you for the wonderful comments. I don’t work often with white, so it was a different mindset for me when creating this piece. I was tickled to have the diamond agates in my stash as they seemed to match the spotting on the Paints.

    Such a pretty necklace! The colors are subtle but work so well with that bright silver pony.the “icy” white does depict winter as you described. The little pops of that lovely green perfectly compliments the rest. Well placed silver beads. Great job.

    FRD, I so appreciate your comment. Your work is absolutely stunning–you know how to bring out the essence of the beads & put them all together in a very powerful way. We all learn so much from the style of others’ creativity.

    What a beautiful set! It sure is a wonderful depiction of winter. All that icy white and silver is gorgeous. Using the neutral brown with the spring green makes the set hopeful that spring is near. Gorgeous CC. I adore your work.

    FRD, Thank you very much. You are so kind. Your work has been inspiring me for some time now. It’s so bold & distinctively confident. I love when you post. Lately I’ve been in a rut, so your encouragement has come at a good time, and I truly appreciate it.

    The color choices are gorgeous. Love the diamond shaped beads as a break in the necklace pattern. Am nuts over that double strand bracelet. I live in horse country and this set would be snapped up in a second in the gallery at our well known horse show.
