A Gift of Love- Custom Made!

It’s a real privilege to make gifts that have true significance in the lives of our clients. We made this gold pendant for our client as a special Christmas gift for his wife, a riding enthusiast who loves performing in the competitive sport of reining.

Sometimes described as a Western form of dressage, reining involves numerous maneuvers of precision and control, requiring complete communication between rider and horse. One of the more famous maneuvers is known as “sliding.”

For the actual slide stop, the rider charges her quarter horse across the arena at full speed, then reins up and slides to a full stop in a spectacular cloud of dust and dirt. Points are awarded to this crowd favorite maneuver for style and performance.

Our client supplied an image of the front gate of his ranch, showing this silhouette of a sliding rider,and had us inscribe “N2SLIDING” on the front (from her personalized license plate) and  a personal message of love on the reverse (we’ll keep that private). I’m sure she won’t forget this Christmas and will wear her treasure every time she rides. We wish her luck!

Making a special piece of jewelry can symbolize love, reward accomplishment, or mark special moments. Our custom design department is ready, willing, and able to work with you to create an ultra special gift only you can give.

With our CAD design software, CNC precision milling, and Rapid Prototype Stereolithography, we can execute almost any design. Give us a call or come by the shop– we’ll be happy to give a no strings quote.
