HOPE Beaded Pony Shoe
HOPE. Hope represents the quality of there always being a way through the challenges we face. Brazilian quartz crystals help energize the intention. Sections of different repurposed zippers frame the beadwork and an antique bauble with rhinestones (on the base of the shoe) gives a playful quality to the piece. Historically horseshoes are symbols of luck and HOPE. This piece has been sealed with an acrylic clear coat for durability and ease of cleaning. These horseshoes are a remembrance of some early folk art work that Betsy created at the start of her career nearly 25 years ago.
