    I don't think it's been covered outright. But yes, I can do double layers. :) MisssAshby's collar was a double layer, bridle top layer over a latigo collar.

    Did you have anything specific in mind for him?

    I'm really lame as far as thinking of designs goes :p but I LOVE the first collar you posted.
    This one:

    But I like the Jade stone, and I would probably want it tapered.

    Would you be able to PM me a total cost for that, with the double layers?

    Also, I can get chrome plated steel martingale chains. During the Sale(until June 9th) they are a free upgrade. After that I think $5. D ring style in 1.5 & 2 inch, O ring style in 3/4 & 1 inch.

    HaHa. Do you want an etched one? It will still be a little while before I do actually offer them, but they're in the works.

    I don't love blingy collars, but I really like that collar!

    Your collars are awesome and you're really talented! I especially love the collars for Hudson and Dekka's dog (is that Quest? I can't see her face haha). They're perfect :D

    Can you make collars as small as 1/2"?

    Thank you for the compliment! :)

    Yes, I can make 1/2" collars.

    And everyone loves Quest's collar! Even my family loved it. HaHa. Hudson's too, but something about all the colors on Quests.... It was like, "oooo shiny thing!"

    These are the Locking Snaps:

    This first one is HUGE. Pretty sure it could hold an elephant!!!
    [​IMG]

    This is the Locking Alligator Snap:
    I personally like the size of this one. I saw one in the leather shop that was 1" and a larger body. This one can hold a max strap of 3/4". I'm thinking I'm going to make my next leash out of this clasp.

    They're both a +$15 upgrade.
    [​IMG]

    Here they are on a dollar bill to also help with size. The smaller silver one is a nickle plated solid brass locking snap. That one is a free upgrade. However, it must be screwed to open/close every time you use it... so it is a little time consuming. It can not be used without screwing/unscrewing.
    [​IMG]
    I'm also looking at adding either black diamond or petzl locking carabiners as a clasp. Not sure on the price for these yet (probably somewhere around +$15-20 upgrade), I have to decide on which one I want to offer. They will be weight rated though. Is there any interest?

    I just want to say that I did PM PWCorgi the day she posted her above reply! So not ignoring her!!! HAHA!


    OK, now on to why I came in here to post!
    I created a FB page and to get the ball rolling, I'm hosting a free raffle for a stamped collar! That means a name collar or a basket weave (El Dorado) collar.

    This is Frodo's collar. I am in love.

    Even though it's not in focus, you can see more of the pattern in this one:

    Again...in freaking love. I don't think I'll ever buy him another collar. This one is pure perfection.
