A while back I wrote about Jim Brandvik, an artist who engraves horseshoes.

I was particularly intrigued by his use of horseshoes… you see, there was a story of a woman who sent her beloved, passed horse’s shoes to him for some sort of special tribute engraving.

The shoes turned out B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L.

What a great idea!


And then he came up with a ton of other ideas of ways to gift engraved horseshoes plus other horsey engraved items – jewelry, knives, spurs … just about anything that can be engraved, he engraves.


Evidently, he sold some work via my blog post so he thanked me with a gift!


This is a professional photograph of the farrier nail necklace I received!


This is what showed up in the mail!  It was a very nice Thank You card and this lovely champagne diamond engraved horse shoe nail necklace!

I was flabbergasted!!!

This is my lousy photo of the beautiful gift that came in the mail with this Thank You card!!

I’ve added the professional shot from his website so that you can see how beautiful it really is in person.  My photography doesn’t do it justice!

Wow!  Thank you, Jim Brandvik!

And, in turn, I decided to peruse his website again for items that I liked.


1)  I loved these horseshoes as a wedding present for the horsey couple!  How sweet, Western and elegant in the same breath.  Of course, it could be English, too…

New Wedding shoes – engraved.

2)  I love jewelry, so of course I went to that first…

I love cuffs!


This blacksmith bracelet is only $39!!


Fun and different! A great wedding band alternative!


I love this rough, copper cuff!!!! $179

I wonder how many of these he can make? – Those nickels are tough to find!


3)  For the guy who likes knives, I thought this was a creative gift.

I’m not a knife gal, but I think this is a great idea for the guy who is into them…


A different style…


4)  Other cool items:

I’ve always loved these – even though I don’t like spurs, I’d love to wear these (without rollers) on my boots!


Edge engraving! He’s branching out!


Custom belt buckles!


THANK YOU, JIM… I totally appreciate your gift to me and will wear it with pride!
