Astrelle … White Wild Horse Lapel Decor

Normally, Artist Shirley Matteson designs and creates fine silver jewelry in the form of necklaces, earrings, or even cuff links. Here, she has created ‘Astrelle,’ a gorgeous white horse lapel decor jewel, with a shock of red on her forehead and set against a bright gold background.

Inspired by her beloved Texas and the wild horses she loves so dearly, Shirley has gone back to her roots here. The bold, textured white of the horse’s coat stands out against the contrast of the bright gold background. The tiny gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process outline the horse’s head and neck and add texture to the design. The result is a one-of-a-kind wild horse that seems to come to life before your eyes.

The Astrelle Gold and White Horse Lapel Decor Jewel

Astrelle is one of a series of horse jewels in Shirley’s newest line of fine jewelry creations. Along with Embarr, Arion, and Celeste, they complete the artist’s vision of bringing the beloved horses of Texas to life. For this line, Shirley has gone one step farther and created a whole new line of fine jewels for her collection. While she more often creates necklaces, earrings, or even cuff links, these wild horses have been created as lapel decor jewels.

Lapel decor? Not a lapel ‘pin’? Well, kind of! They look like lapel pins, but have a secret when you turn them over. There are no sharp pins on the back of these jewels. So nothing to destroy your lapel and prick your fingers. Instead, Shirley used strong rare earth magnets that will keep your jewel ‘pinned’ to your lapel.

Of course, Shirley’s gorgeous horse jewelry comes with a rosewood box, storage pouch and a powerful rare earth magnet on the back. Naturally, when you’re not showing off your fabulous wild horse lapel decor fine jewelry, keep her in her silvercloth pouch so she won’t get tarnished.
