The love of horses is universal: you can look in corporate boardrooms and find people who are passionate about horses. You can look down on the farm, and find people who are passionate about horses. You can look everywhere in between and find horse lovers — and all of these people need jewelry that commemorates and celebrates that passion.
This week, we’d like to focus on the free spirit: the creative, artistic types who are passionate about horses and have a unique individual flair. These folks aren’t conventional: they want the one-of-a-kind piece that represents THEM.
Estate and heirloom horse jewelry is often the ideal choice for the free spirit. Check out this pendant:
A large, hand-carved (and we know that hand made pieces are highly valued by creative individuals!) oval carnelian shell pendant features a reclining, dreamy-faced woman in repose next to a majestic rearing horse. Look at the spirit and passion of the horse, coupled with the quiet, contented contemplation of the woman: is this not the perfect representation of the creative spirit in all its manifestations?
What’s nice about this piece is that it is versatile. While it’s pictured here as a pendant, it’s also a pin: the bail folds down, allowing the cameo to be worn on a lapel, pinned on a jacket, accenting an outfit in a unique striking way.
If you’re a fan of Victorian jewelry this piece will resonate with you. Classic, timeless styling hearkens back to an ideal time, when we were able to focus on what’s truly important, without all of the modern day distractions that keep us from what we truly love and value. Slipping this pendant on can serve as a point of connection, serving as a tangible touchstone that reminds us of what we really, honestly are in our hearts.
When shopping for the free spirit, you want to look for pieces that are unique and one of a kind. Focus on the beauty of the piece, and don’t sweat it if it’s not ‘trendy’ — your creative sweetheart or daughter doesn’t focus on the trend. They want the piece that represents them — and what could make a more perfect gift than that piece of horse jewelry that honors their creative nature!
