Horse totems represent passion, service, and freedom
Wild One ~ necklace and earrings
Featuring a ceramic pendant created by hand from clay, combined with gemstones, bone, glass or wood beads to complete this modern tribal jewelry. The ceramic pendant is hand cut from a slab of clay, fired, glazed, fired again. Finally the horse decal is applied & the piece is fired a third time to 1700 degrees so that the horse melts into the creamy glaze to become permanent.
Beliefs vary by tribe or culture, but the horse generally represents passion, service, and freedom. I love to use gemstones for their beauty & luxurious feel. Pairing gemstones with traditional Native American hairpipe sets the piece apart from other jewelry. Hairpipe (tubular beads tapered at both ends) were originally made from conch shells and were highly valued. Today, genuine hairpipe is made from bone or horn and is used by Native Americans to create chokers, necklaces & striking breastplates.
