This is my latest equine pendant necklace. I hand form the horse head with fine sterling silver, using heavy 18 gauge, then pound the form to harden and fix the shape. Next, I wire wrap with a finer sterling wire using black onyx, lapis lazuli, citine, and choice stone beads to complete the mane. With the ends of the wires, I curve and design the forelock, then add a jump ring and cord of choice.
