Forbes Farm Has Gone Western

It's almost Rodeo time here in our little town.  That got me thinking about how many folks love the West, or what they perceive as the "West".  We Americans, and a lot of the world think of the old movies and the Roy Rogers type of actors we grew up with as "Western".   I put my own twist on my Western items adding designs borrowed from my Native American roots to many of them.  I try to draw from the colors used by the First People in their early bead artwork along with the ever popular turquoise and silver always associated with the "West".

My Etsy Forbes Farm shop is now carrying my Western wear items.  I am busy at the loom these days with exciting new items.  If there's something special you would like, feel free to send me a note.  Anyone for a beaded horse bridle?  It's in my head, but that's as far as it's gotten.  Heck, I haven't even made that collar for my cat that I promised her yet!

Happy Trails!

Your new western inspired items are wonderful. I've always lived on the east coast and these scream "west" to me. A beaded bridle is a great idea!
