Goat Jewelry

My current goat jewelry was based on an image of the miniature goat- that adorable little farm animal so popular now. But I like all goats, and expect to be designing some other breeds in my farm animal jewelry  before too long.
 
 Now for a bit of history. They are closely related to sheep. The main distinguishing features are that sheep horns (in male sheep only) grow to the sides of the head and goat’s horns curl up and back and both sexes have them. Also males have a very strong “goaty” smell.

You know, that smell really grew on me. There is a hint of it in goat cheese and yogurt and I do not mind it a bit. However, one of my artist friends worked quite a bit with their hair one some of her projects and became so “allergic” to the smell that she can’t even consider eating any of their products. Seems a shame- I think they are wonderfully exotic tasting and much prefer them to cow’s milk products.
There are 5 wild species. And I have no idea how many breeds of domesticated ones there are, but I imagine a whole heck of a lot more than five!

You can choose among several of my designs, from a sweet little nubian charm to a full body pin or pendant.
