A decorative use for old horse shoes

I’ve written before about people who turn old horse shoes into pieces of sculpture, A Better Use for Old Shoes. I recently came across another way to turn horse shoes into art — this one a bit more accessible for those of us not comfortable wielding a blow torch: Beaded horse shoes. Check them out. They are quite lovely!

I think it would be great way to remember a favorite horse. I’m going to have to search and see if I still have any of Kroni’s old shoes. With a bit of ribbon, glue and beads you can make something quite memorable and individual.
