White Horse Necklace - 1.25" bone - Adjustable!
This adjustable surfer necklace features a white horse made of bone powder that measures approximately 1.25" long and about 1" tall. The horse is very smooth and feels a bit like stone (and if you press it to your cheek, it is ever so slightly cool to the touch), but it is not heavy at all. It feels relatively light when worn. There is black necklace rope that is adjustable to whatever length you choose -- long or short. Two small dark brown wooden beads decorate the necklace above the white horse.
Please note the size of the horse. At 1.25" long and 1" tall, it is not a large horse, but is not tiny, either. The pictures make it seem very large, because they are close up! (When we first saw the photos, we thought the horse would be very large and hang heavy. We were pleasantly surprised to find out it was smaller than we had imagined, but we like it!)
As you can see by the photo, the horse is mostly white with some black accents to show a bit of the musculature and basic design features. (It reminds us a bit of the Westbury White Horse carved into the hill in England.)
"White horses have a special significance in the mythologies of cultures around the world. They are often associated with the sun chariot, with warrior-heroes, with fertility (in both mare and stallion manifestations), or with an end-of-time saviour, but other interpretations exist as well." -- Wikipedia
How to adjust the necklace size
When you first receive the necklace, it may seem too short to pull over your head. Don't worry! You can extend it to a very long length, about 18" long, if you choose. If you want it to fall low on a sweater, it will adjust to that long length. If you want to wear it shorter, closer to your neck, you can do that, too. To adjust, pull on one of the strings or pull at the tied rope portion just above the beads and you will be able to slide it and adjust to the size of your choice. If you have never worn an adjustable necklace like this, it is easy to adjust - just slide the rope/string and check to see what is the right length for you.
