The Horses of Ben Nighthorse Jewelry
Native Americans often believe that a person can inherit some of an animal's virtues by wearing an image of it. That is one reason why noble creatures have always played an important role in Nighthorse Designs. This love of animals, especially the horse which is seen as a symbol of freedom and strength, inspires him to create new innovative designs. As he says, “I have always liked horses for their emotion, strength, and dignity.” Ben and his wife Linda are champion Quarter Horse trainers; this personal experience provides him with insight and understanding as he creates his newest equine designs.Ben Nighthorse Jewelry can be found exclusively at Sorrel Sky Gallery.
