Celeste… 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 ‘Celeste,’ a gorgeous white wild horse, outlined in 24k gold and set against a pale blue background.

Inspired by her beloved Texas and the wild horses she loves so dearly, Shirley has gone back to her roots here. The white of the horse’s coat and the tiny 24k wires outlining its shapre shine against the bright, pale blue background. The tiny gold wires used in the Cloissoné jewlery making process outline the horse’s head and neck, making it stand out against the blue of the sky. The result is a one-of-a-kind wild horse that seems to come to life before your eyes.

The Celeste White Horse Lapel Decor Jewel

Celeste is one of a series of horse jewels in Shirley’s newest line of fine jewelry creations. Along with Embarr, Arion, and Astrelle, 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.
