Look! I finished Something Part 2!!

Real silver and real woven knot show halter

Look! I finished another thing!  I'm kinda proud..   I'm pushing and pushing myself to get back in the studio. My problem is having time and energy but I'm pushing!  I started working on a Tennessee Walking horse Bridle and a saddleseat bridle but I was just so tired and my skills were rusty.. So I needed a pickmeup in the shape of things that are easier and make me happy to do!  It also reminds me that I can do these tiny things and i'm pretty good at it :)

Look I Finished Something Part I

So around the end of may, early part of june, I started experimenting with making real holes for the browband and the noseband of saddleseat style bridles.  At first it didn't really work because I was still using needles to make the holes.. then DUH I figured out that I could use a mechanical pencil to punch the holes with my cutting mat underneath.  So the above halter has white behind the maroon piece and those are real holes punched in.  I did fill a couple with white paint to make them stand out more but all in all I really like the effect!


I am trying to push myself to get more studio time and blog time, so hopefully there will be more posts!
