Green Presentation Set

A few months back I accepted a commission for a couple Arabian tack sets. Over the weekend I completed the first, which was based off a halter/collar set for real horses:

The goal was to try to re-create it in miniature as closely as possible, which brought a lot of challenges. I like being challenged in tack-making though, and this set had me thinking outside the box for quite a few things.

While it’s not an exact copy of the original, I think it’s still pretty close, even with the slight changes in design.

I am really pleased with the gold medallions and “beaded” tassels. The medallions were made from black Sculpey clay, with a layer of gold Pearl Ex pigment brushed on.

The tassels were created with a mix of thin wire and polymer clay as well, in both liquid and solid form.

All in all, I’m pleased with how it turned out, as so is the new owner, which makes me happy. 🙂

In other news…

I’ve had several people ask me when I’ll be posting more things for sale on Etsy, and my answer is that I don’t know yet. Soon, I hope, but “soon” can mean so many different things. I am planning on posting a preview on my blog (with a date!) first, so really, the best way to stay informed is to subscribe to my blog via email, or like my page on facebook, since I crosspost over there. I’m not trying to gain new followers by saying that, haha, but since I will not be following-up with individuals whenever I post something new for sale, it really is the best way to stay informed. Thanks so much for the interest in my work, I really appreciate it. 🙂

  1. I just saw some photos of sets like these done for live horses. Very nice. How do you finish the lead connection to the clasp? Is it simply wrapped and glued? Thanks!
