“It’s a lifelong passion, an addiction. What we do is all we do.” Liz Workland, Custom show clothier
Performance is the culmination of pursuit and passion. It takes discipline, it takes sacrifice, it takes failure, it takes time. To deliver a performance you’re proud of takes true dedication; when it’s finally time to shine, you want to be brilliant.
“Do we borrow the light? Or does it borrow us to conduct its brilliance? In expressing ourselves at the highest level, we seek to harness the light, to let it move with us and through us. Bending and refracting, irradiating blue then yellow, subtlety changing color, mirroring then transporting radiance.” Swarovski; All Eyes on You, Celebrating Athletes in the Spotlight
Rhinestones can add flair to Western wear, show off your show horse and add polish to an English style equestrian. But, at Rhinestones Unlimited, we’re more than just glitter and gold.
We’re artists, too. We’re athletes. We’re movers and shakers, pursuing that moment of balance when we can exhale and our entire being is in sync. When that which we sense instinctively becomes the movement our muscles have trained for: “Light.” Turn. “Earth.” Run. “Wind.” Fly. To find it in ourselves. To find it with another. Wordlessly. A silent language of contact and perception.
“When people have horses, they are passionate about them. You’re born with that passion. It’s not acquired.” Liz Workland
We perform as the goal to push ourselves to get to this place, and to challenge the boundaries, and to give back to the people who helped us get there.
What we wear in those moments is an expression of our own story and the history of the community that supports us. Will your costume tell of the obstacles you jumped or the messes you cleaned up, or will it tell of the moments you triumphed?
“Or is it the light that finds in you, the performing athlete, the perfect vehicle? Fluid, graceful, practiced, precise, moving within a routine yet feeling the freedom to improvise. As the light shines down upon you, will you conduct the crystal’s brilliance, or become it?” Swarovski; All Eyes on You
