First of all the collar that we ordered for our dog to wear during our wedding ceremony is absolutely stunning! Geralyn was the best to work with. I described what I was looking for based on collars she had displayed in her shop and my own ideas. She put it all together even better than I had pictured in my head. She sent me pictures as she went so we could make tweaks when she thought we could make the collar even better, and it did. Instead of sending me exactly what I ordered she went above and beyond. And to top it all off she included a very touching wedding gift. When you're planning a wedding you really value the experiences that feel very personal and that was the kind of experience I had with Geralyn. I searched through a lot of collar shops before we decided to order from her shop, and I'm so glad we did!

Love these collars! My bulldog has had his 7 years...which with all the things he gets into is incredible! I got a new one for my rescue puppy because she needed flowers not skulls to match the bulldog. Thank you so much for making such a great product!!! I get so many compliments on their collars!

About

Wood Carver turned Leather Worker

I am told my first project at 5 years old was a Superman cap for my 3 year old little brother. He was really mad because it did not make him fly.

At 8 years old my Aunt Colleen took me to my first 4-H meeting with my cousin Mary. At a 4-H workshop I was introduced into leather. I did compete in leather but it was not my best projects. I excelled in sewing and woodcarving.

At 26 I was at a big craft show and saw personalized dog bandanas selling like hot cakes. I thought a leather collar with your dog's name would be more useful and last longer. That week I ordered my leather and started making collars.

After having my first baby 5 years ago I have found there is no time for wood carving. My collars have now turned into my favorite project and fulfill my need to make things:)

Thanks for checking out my collars! I have a lot of fun making them. Hope you enjoy.
Please note all collars are made when you order, you can include a neck measurement for a more custom fit:
1. Measure around your pet's neck (were you like the collar to fit) and give me the neck size
or
2. Measure from buckle to hole your pet use's on current collar.

STEPS IN MAKING COLLARS

1. I Start with a double shoulder of quality 9oz
Leather.
2. Cut into strips, punch holes and burnish edges
3. The dogs name is then stamped into the leather,
I can also put phone #'s in at this stage.
4. The leather collar is then dryed and dyed to your
color, after the dye drys, I paint the letters a
different color so they stand out on the collar.
5. Collar is then sealed with 2 coats of leather
sealer.
6. I finish the collar with heavy duty nickle buckle
and D ring, they are secured with rivets.

-IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH A COLLAR, I WILL REPLACE
IT OR GIVE A REFUND MINUS THE POSTAGE.

Thanks Geralyn
