As demonstrated in 2004, our hand-carved horseshoe charm turned out well. Fast forward to present day and a search for "horseshoe charms" only returns a lot of cartoonish variations. Worse still? Most are designed upside-down to symbolically spill out the wearer's luck! Let's right this by re-creating our earlier charm.
Designing with the computer permits a greater degree of symmetry. Details like the extrusions at the heel-end are easily added.
The render process tells the computer to compute metallic detail, reflections, highlights and shadows. The end result is a photo-realistic glimpse of what it'll look like before it's committed to production.
Another render provides a very nice sense of what it'd look like if worn as a pendant and provide cues on its relative size.
CAD objects also permit calculating its ballpark price. In its initial depicted size, each charm would cost approximately $225 if cast in either 14k yellow, white, or rose gold. This horseshoe charm will be appreciated by any horse lover, equestrian afficionado, or high-stakes gambler alike.
