—the artwork of Sarahbeth Barlas— 
 
  This page displays non-commissioned SSS's Flashy Stable Halter creations from 2009 and 2010. The images are not dated and many more were made than are shown here -they were originally sold catalog style. I recognize that many of the images kept within this gallery are very old representations of my work and so do not show my current skill set; however, I like keeping them displayed to offer some fun history!
One of these even made its way into a YouTube video show :)
For an idea of my current design style and packaging, please see work listed under the current year on the Gallery page. The chronological history of SSS's Flashy Stable Halters is also found there, which you may enjoy reading.

I want you to see the quality in my work.
Each picture is a thumbnail that will open into a huge, full-screen shot.

 

PCMB Craft Show, March 2009:
I had an opportunity to split a table during the PCMB Craft Show in early 2009. This was the first time I sold a SSS's Flashy Stable Halter, ever -before the packaging was designed, when a unicorn graced my business cards, and the website didn't exist! I sold one item that day, a violet with silver hardware, to a lady for her grandchild in Oregon. I thought the idea of my artwork being loved by a child on "the other side of the world [USA]" was the absolutely most awesome thing in the whole universe!

 

Fan Photos from Tiffany R.:
Tiffany R. owns (11) SSS's Flashy Stable Halters!
She was kind enough to send me pictures of her latest collection.

 

Saddlery-sold SSS's Flashy Stable Halters:
A number of SSS's Flashy Stable Halters were sold at a local saddlery in MI during 2009 and 2010. These are the only pieces that contain price stickers. If my records are correct (thank goodness my high school self grew up to gain better record keeping skills!) I had 40 pieces available through them. When I finally pulled from the saddlery, all remaining stock of (17), shown below, was sold on MH$P two years later in 2012.

 

Fan Photos from Judy Williams:
Judy Williams received (3) of the remaining saddlery stock in her Christmas stocking and was kind enough to send me some beautiful fan photos. The images were taken in 2012, but the pieces were made in 2010.
