Lou Petty is a native of Michigan, but she and her husband, Tim, has called Ocala their home for the last 15 years. Their move was motivated by their Quarter Horse business. Raising and showing horses led to her current jewelry business! Braiding horses tail hair into commemorative jewelry has been well received nationwide. Custom pieces designed and crafted personally by Lou have given everyone a reminder of their favorite horse(s).It gives her great pleasure to see how much the pieces mean to her customers.
Her eye for design and color expanded to braiding silver wire especially for the Artist Alley. The same method of braiding is used as for the horse hair. Commissioned pieces are always fun to design as each customer can have as much input as they want. Lou also makes pure silver beads. They can have your initials, name, logo, or pet’s name incorporated with favorite colors or stones.
Please enjoy browsing the different styles and media that she uses. Each one are unique and one of a kind. Wire wrapping sea glass and diachroic shapes are another way of designing something that may catch your eye.
Have fun exploring her “Designs by Lou” collection.
