This is a very cool dog collar that is completely customizable. It looks like a loom project but is done with beading wire and No Loom! You can stitch in your pet's name or any combination of their name, fun symbols, funny phrase (such as "Santa's Helper" or "Throw The Ball!"), your phone number (so you can eliminate their noisy name tag if you want) or even the name of your favorite sports team. There's no end to the possibilities; you'll want to make several - I have! This one's for Harry, a dog that will live in infamy! This pattern, featuring over 60 high resolution full color photos and easy to follow step-by-step directions, will show and tell you how to make your furry, small to medium breed friend a personalized collar 5/8" wide and anywhere from 10" to 16" long (keeping length proportional with the collar width). I include patterns (both wide & narrow) for each alphabet letter and numbers 0-9 as well as some punctuation marks and lots of fun symbols. I also offer some helpful tips for choosing successful color schemes, bead types, and finishes so you get a great result. This design uses a .6 inch (15mm) standard plastic side-release buckle (just like the ones on most pet collars) so taking it on and off is a snap! This collar was designed to be both comfortable and durable, and should hold up to regular wear for many years to come. Note: This collar was designed as "Pet Jewelry" only and should not be used or relied upon as a restraint, or as a collar you intend to attach a lead or restraint to for walks or any other purpose. That's my disclaimer : ) So go ahead, spoil your furry best friend with a custom collar that will make him or her look bead-utifle and show off your mad beading skills! Have fun and "Bead Happy"! Note: Similar patterns also available in Large, Medium and X-Small sizes (X-Small is pur-fect for cats as well as toy breeds and puppies).
