Default Jaded Horseshoe

Hello all,
My brother is both the one who got me into brewing beer and the one who came up with this idea.
We are both bald and a bit bitter.
This will be the neck label for any new beers we produce.
Had some fun modeling a horseshoe in the computer, then added a nice jade shader to the mix.
Cheers,
Bob

The only thing i'd suggest is adding some texture to other parts of the design (or i guess eliminating the texture, but i like it), right now you have this very rich looking horseshoe, and everything else is very flat...so experiment with ways to get away from that flatness and i think it will look significantly better (not that it doesn't look good already)

Thanks Gents.
Rockford, this is going to be used as a neck label, and the less patterning, the more likely it will print. I tried a couple with some nice detail and they came muddy out of the printer. Surprisingly, the jade still showed through.
I'll be doing something different for the body of the bottle.
