I’m a jewelry fiend, whether it’s geeky or not. I’ve noticed when it comes to a lot of geek-related jewelry they get an A+ on the geeky part, but miss the mark on the actual quality of the jewelry design. Thankfully, I stumbled across Show Pony on one of my weekly Etsy binges and fell in love. Her fantasy-themed references already make the items a must-buy, and then her elegant jewelry designs put them over the edge.
I featured Show Pony‘s “Always” necklace on my Harry Potter & Valentine’s Day Jewelry Post. It’s pretty much one of those, “I need this for reasons.” necklaces. It’s a subtle way to show your off Potter pride. I absolutely adore mine!
Shelby also does custom pieces! I had her make a custom Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire cuff for me with the words, “Valar Morghulis”. It came out just as I imagined. It’s thick, but still easily bendable to adjust to any sized wrist. I’m throwing a giveaway with a few lovely items from Show Pony, check out how to win below!

Interview with Shelby of SHOW PONY STORE
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Shelby: My name is Shelby Isaac I’m a college student from Maryland, U.S.A. and Etsy is my creative outlet/moneymaker. I have a pet tarantula and a kitten that keep me company while I run my Etsy business.
How long have you been making jewelry?
Shelby: I’ve been making jewelry since 2010, when I opened my Etsy shop.
How did SHOWPONYSTORE come to be?
Shelby: Oddly enough, I started out making my original items out of frustration. My first purchase on Etsy was an overpriced Harry Potter inspired vial necklace. When it arrived, it was broken, leaking through the package, and no “thank you” note was included. I knew I could make something better for a cheaper price, so that’s what I did.
Which have been some of your favorite pieces to make?
Shelby: My “always” doe patronus necklace is my favorite. It’s subtle and still geeky. That’s not always easy to find in jewelry.
Do you have any geeky obsessions? If so what?
Shelby: Any other geeky obsessions… I love Tolkien and Martin. High fantasy is my thing.
What do you think your your patronus be?
Shelby: It would be a shark! A little one. Like a spiny dogfish/mud shark.
If you lived in Westeros, what would your house name, sigil and motto be?
Shelby: I already consider myself to be of House Tyrell, so creating my own house is out of the question. Growing strong!
If you were on a deserted island what video game, comic/book, movie, TV show would you bring?
Shelby: I would bring the Potter series. Television show that I couldn’t live without: Star Trek. The original series.
