Just something I saw today while shopping around…Horse Shoes by Design. Artist, Laura A. Gironda, can take one of your horse’s shoes and make a work of art of it! By adding beads, charms and stones, she adds a lot of dimension and beauty to an old shoe. I think this is a great idea for decor but also as a way to honor a special horse you’ve lost.
They aren’t really a money-saving piece of art, but definitely something the crafty to could attempt to make. Find your favorite beads, jewelry wire, and have at it! I have a ton of horse shoes I’ve collected over the years from special or horses & places and some that are just cool. Some of them are special but just look like an ordinary not so beautiful shoe. This could be a cool way to add some color to a collection.
