Year of the Wood-Horse
Wood-Horse Themes Pendants by natashajewelry featuring wall art
Three weeks ago, walking down the Flatbush Ave in Brooklyn, a package in my hand, I felt the buzz of my phone in my pocket. Stepping over a snow pile, I glanced at a message from a good friend and client asking me when I was going to make my pendant for the year of the Wood Horse.
My reply? I am not good at animals, I don't think I can carve a horse. She pressed me a bit, and after I got home, I got out some animal photos. Maybe it was worth investigating. Perhaps I would be inspired. Then, she added the idea of incorporating the branches of a tree into the horse to represent the wood element of the year, and I got a little excited.
As you can see, in the photos, the drawing quickly progressed to a wax, which I then had cast. On the back is the character for "horse" in Chinese calligraphy.
She ordered the pendant for a special secret purpose, but now I can reveal the pendant, and offer it to you.
This year promises some wild, galloping energy, and this is a talisman to help you be clear if it is time to go, run, with your hair streaming behind, or if you are galloping in the wrong direction. You can find the pendant here.
