Initial Horseshoe


This lovely personalized horseshoe pendant is made from hand shaped sterling silver and gold wire which I hammer for texture and gemstone beads. The two silver horseshoes are wire wrapped together forming a channel of beautiful turquoise beads surrounding the gold initial inside.

For centuries Turquoise has been recognized as possessing the power to protect riders from injury due to falls. First used as amulets by Turkish soldiers, on their persons and attached to their bridles and trappings. It is also a perfect companion for those who travel a lot. It protects them from thefts or accidents, bringing good fortune to the owner. Historically, Turquoise is credited with being the symbol of friendship, saying that “he, or she, who owns a Turquoise will never want for a friend.” It is also the December birthstone

Opal amplifies traits, whether those traits are good or bad, and brings characteristics to the surface for transformation. It enhances self worth, confidence and self-esteem, and helps you to understand your full potential. The stone is said to help stimulate originality and creativity.  A karmic stone- it encourages putting out positive emotions and teaches that what you put out comes back to you. The opal is also a representative of justice and harmony, and is a protective stone in dangerous places. It is also the October birthstone.

Perfect gift for equestrian or horse lover in your life
