Several years ago I happened upon an old Mexican silver belt buckle. One seemed to turn into about 6 of them and they ended up in a drawer gathering dust. When I was looking at these belt buckles I thought that they would make a great little frame for some western motif. I designed the necklace about 2 years ago and just couldn't find the right image to frame. I started working with PMC (Precious Metal Clay) and found the perfect media to create exactly what I needed so the search was on for a bucking bronco rider. It took about a year to find the right size figure but I finally did. I had originally designed this to have several strands but after trying a couple different compositions came up with this one. Does it sometimes take you forever to complete an idea? Are you usually happy with the outcome?
