Horse Jewelry

I saw something similar to these at the horse expo. I figured I had enough beading stuff to make them myself. I got really bored today and made these.I tried to match their colors with the pads and tack we use. Don't look to hard, I did brush the horses today but its really muddy and they rolled again What do you think? I thought they would be pretty for parades and such.

Vida -Hard to believe I just brushed her about 3 hours ago :roll:

I want one with bells too and I have a whole bag of them someplace I bought some of those alligator or butterfly hair clips If you know what I'm talking about... the ones that you pinch to open and close. I got the really little ones and drilled a tiny hole in them with a dremel tool. I looked all over for something to use and that seemed the easiest and cheapest. I left a loop at the end of Vidas for a bell when I find them.

They are really easy to make. Took me about 10-15 min. Each and I have a hard time seeing close up I just used 20lb. Test fishing line for the string, and some beads I already had. You will need to have some beading supplies if you don't already. I bought the little hair clips for $1 something for 15 of them. You will need the beads, crimp tubes and split rings if you use the fishing line since its hard to tie knots in it and have it stay tied. If you use something else to string the beads on I'm sure you could just tie a knot.
If you don't want to go to the trouble of making them yourself I saw some on a web site. Rhythmbeads.com I just didn't see any that knocked my socks off and thought it would be fun to make my own.

Heres the top

And the bottom I left a split ring to add a bell to this one.
