New Palomino horse necklace unveiled and Sedona Red Rock pendants get a new look

For several years I've been having fun making Sedona Southwestern jewelry and ornaments for my shops using a faux red rock polymer clay base that includes a bit of "magical" Sedona Red Rock Dirt in the mix. A customer (now an Internet friend) asked me to design a pendant to pay homage to her beloved Palomino horse, "Sunshine", and I thought it would be a great time to shake things up in the collection and update some of the pieces while I was at it. Out with the old and in with the new for 2014 (just a little bit early)!
My raised applique Southwestern Sedona faux Red Rock pendants are now shaped like a disc, measure 1/4" (6.3mm) thick and are a substantial 1 7/8 (4.7cm) in diameter.  They look a lot like real Red Rock. They now have an 8mm jump ring at the top that allows for the cord chain to be removed so one can substitute their own chain if they prefer. The entire Southwestern Sedona Ornament and Jewelry collection can be seen at MelodyODesigns at Etsy.

The following studio photos show some of the equipment and supplies I use to make the raised appliqued pieces. The photos show the older style of pendant. 


  1. Your work is really growing and expanding! I am glad to still see your posts after all this time. I no longer work in polymer but I still love seeing what you do.

  2. Busy girl you are. Love that horse. Is it snowing up there now? Those are really great, hope you sell a bunch.

  3. They are all wonderful!! I love the horses, a great addition to your ornament collection!!

  4. What a cute pendant. Such a lively pony!
