I’ve been quite adamant about how I don’t like bling. I thought my dressage bridle with some silver piping was flashy enough. It’s not that I don’t like the look of blinged out browbands, they just weren’t for me.
Or so I thought.
And then people started posting about Dark Jewel Designs and showing off their new browbands. And I started to reconsider my stance.
I’ll admit that I contacted Amelia once and backed out. But when I contacted her again, this spring, she kindly walked me through the process yet again. She was incredibly helpful and timely. Plus, you can’t beat the price! Two custom browbands for $50?? Incredible!
I decided I wanted a browband for my jog at Rebecca. There was a purple one I had seen her make for someone else that I had been coveting ever since.
And, for my second strand I decided on something less flashy and colorful, something I could use for stadium jumping.
Georgie was way more excited about it than she is indicating in the picture. She just hates ribbons on her pretty bridle.
So here is where things get crazy. The mailing address for Dark Jewel Designs is in Albany,NY. I mentioned that I grew up about an hour from Albany in a town called Ancramdale. It’s a TINY cow town, but maybe Amelia had heard of it?
Um. Her horse barn is in Ancramdale. She drives by my Dads house almost daily! Small world. I knew there was a reason Dark Jewel Designs was the one for me.
So, I’m a blinged out browband convert. I LOVE these browbands. I could see myself giving more as gifts. Or gifts for me…
So, if you’re on the fence, check out their Etsy sight or follow Dark Jewel Designs on Facebook. It’ll be hard to resist a new browband.
