Dog Collar Thursday-May 12

Good Evening my Friends. I have not written since Sunday due to Family issues…..sorry. Today is Dog Collar Thursday, so let’s see what I can find. This little gem is just that. Made from the band of a leather Swarovski watch, transformed into a leather pet collar, this collar is small but lovely. I found this band attached to a watch that no longer worked, removed the watch and attached a lovely vintage broach. The result is a simple but…

Dog Collar Thursday

As you may know, today is Cashmere’s Birthday, my baby is 1 year old. To celebrate this event, the dog collar for today belongs to Cashmere. It is her bling or “we are having company” collar.  I started creating collars when I was constantly asked why my pretty girl didn’t have any bling. I searched far and wide but came up empty so I decided to make my own. This particular leather collar is a used belt with lovely embossing…

Love these patent leather dog collars that were a special order for a special friend(Heidi). They were a gift to give to a friend who has a Standard Poodle and their niece has a Toy Poodle.

Dog Collar Thursday

Dog Collar Thursday is just that. I am going to post a pet collar creation each Thursday. I create these collars using recycled products(usually leather belts) and bling them up using vintage jewellery. I am loving this, I try to be as creative as possible but best of all, I get to use my hands. The result is a striking personalized collar that I can say, “Hey, I made that”. These pet collars cannot be found in pet stores. This…
