Founded by artist and equestrian Laura Lee Parker, ICONEQ Designs elevates everyday practical accessories with high quality materials and custom embellishments.
As equestrians, we are no strangers to hard work and long days. I’ve lived like many other equestrians - doing whatever it takes to keep horses in my life. I’ve had a variety of jobs since I was thirteen. I left public school for online classes my sophomore year of high school, so I could better balance work and riding. At times, you could find me at the barn at 1:00 in the morning, because that was the only free time I had. At nineteen, I started my career as a tattoo artist, and was able to ride and show more consistently.
It took me four years to realize what Iconeq was. Was it minimalist leather work? Or opulent, hand painted designs adorned with crystals? It swung through a wide spectrum, depending on what inspired me in the moment. There was so much room for variety, and so much space to create. I was trying to decide what to leave behind, so I could figure out what aspect of the equestrian world Iconeq fit into. It felt like someone handed me a grand prix horse, and kept asking me what color cross rails I was going to jump with it.
Equestrians of all disciplines and walks of life have hugely inspired me. Along with everything from architecture, runway fashion, nature, and so much more. To me, Iconeq was a way to break out of the precedents that had been set for us, and give myself and other equestrians a way to be as refined or as bold as they want. Finally I realized that instead of focusing on the color of the cross rails, I realized I could simply raise the jumps.
Iconeq started out as an outlet for my own self expression. I quickly found that creating unique and personalized things for other equestrians fueled more creativity and joy than I could’ve imagined. There’s something truly special when someone wears something that was designed just for them or their horse.
After submitting an order form, you can expect to hear from us within two days. The timeline for custom orders fluctuates depending on the time of the year. Most orders are completed within 2 weeks-1 month after we receive your order form.
We can customize just about everything but the horse! English and Western tack (yes, even saddles), to equestrian apparel and accessories from head to toe. Hats, helmets, shirts, show coats, stock ties, gloves, belts, bags, breeches, jeans, boots, and more!
As long as they are cared for according to the recommendations we provide, the crystals hold up very well over time. As with all tack and apparel, normal wear and tear over the years can be expected. That being said, I only use the highest quality crystals available, which helps them look lovely for years to come when properly cared for.
Pricing is based on the complexity and scope of the design, as well as the amount of crystals needed to complete it. Because each order is unique to the customer, each order is gaged on a case-by-case basis. In general, I base pricing starting off of the $50 minimum, which covers up to 100 crystals in just about any application.
You can pay an additional "rush fee" of $100 per project (Laura's schedule permitting) to have your order processed and completed within seven business days. Simply mention this in the comment section of your order form.
