Several years ago I started a project that gave me a great excuse to hoard boxes of sweet and savory beads, vintage findings and tiny muslin bags away in my closet. Inspired by the show ponies of my childhood, and uninspired by the basic 'diaper pins' we had to fasten our stock ties in the show arena twenty years ago, I launched a line of hand-crafted equestrian stock pins, and such project became the Puffer Pony Pin Co.
Over the course of a few months, I created several dozen pins in a variety of styles and colors, on both silver and gold plated pin bases. I carefully photographed each one, and pulled together several young equestrians willing to be my models. Lola too, of course.
But, as it often does, the 'real job' and 'life' took priority and those sweet pins found themselves tucked away for another time.
Having come across them again, I feel they are ready for new homes; and so they are currently being offered in my Etsy shop on a creative clearance sale :: CLICK HERE to see the full selection available.
