Riding instructor gift

This is a gift for a dear lady that is a riding instructor in our area. She has done wonders for my oldest daughter.
The jewelry piece at the lower portion of the photo is a zipper pull. I made a few of these over the years - this one features a pewter horse, sterling silver components. Swarovski conponents: squaredelles, cubes & rondelles. jewelry component source: www.firemountaingems.com. Metal latch findings can be located at Michaels Craft Store or most large craft stores. I locked the dangle element into the lower portion of the metal latch finding by neatly winding a length of sterling silver 20 gauge wire in place. This prevents the jeweled portion from working its way off of the latch element.
Rectangular silver metal CD tin was covered with Anna Griffin paper; SU night of navy band is held closed with a Basic Grey magnetic snap. Tin houses six notecard sized cards & envelopes. stamp credit: SU. SU apricot & olive cardstock used as well.
Hope she likes it!
