Custom Collars and More

We make custom, made to order collars (as well as chokers and necklaces for the vanilla types). We cater to those in the lifestyle as we are as well. All of the weaves for the collars and anklets have been tested to be worn 24/7, while playing, sleeping, bathing, swimming, horseback riding, working, and in general living. Our goal is to provide high quality collars that can blend into the vanilla world yet be seen for what they truly are by others in the lifestyle. We only use the highest quality materials this includes jewelers quality Anodized aluminum (not the soft colored aluminum so many others use) This makes our Aluminum pieces light and comfy for continued wear as well as a large variety of colors available so we can make a collar in about any house colors. Our aluminum is also very sturdy, our anklets were tested being worn for a year straight without removal while working, swimming at the beach or pool, horseback riding regularly, sleeping, and we checked for color loss of the rings or any issues with loosening of the rings we are pleased to say none of this was an issue with our products! Our Stainless Steel is both stronger and a more pure metal then Surgical Stainless steel meaning those with metal allergies normally with not have any issues with our steel. Also our steel if allowed to "Season" gets a beautiful Renaissance look to the weaves and if preferred can be easily polished back to a bright silver look with stainless steel polish sprays, jewelry cleaners or polishing cloth. We also offer high grade titanium, slow tarnish sterling silver, Gold fill ( a sleeve of gold over jewelers brass... we have yet to have anyone wear through the gold sleeve so you get the look of gold without the extravagant price), as well as Jewelers Brass, Bronze, Copper and Niobium. All of our weaves are available in all metals so just ask. Yes you can find cheaper chainmaille out here, but cheaper is not better. If you want the best quality materials and craftsmanship at a reasonable price this is the shop for you.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

We recommend using a fabric tape measure to be placed around the wearers neck crossing where the lock would sit. We suggest that the lock position be 2 inches below the collar bones to allow for tendon movement and normal swelling. This also allows for round weaves to roll and move with your neck without flipping the lock up or out of place. We do NOT suggest a shorter length and any that are ordered at a length longer we cannot guarantee the lifespan of the lock. When worn long the locks do not sit flat against the skin and skin oils and acids will wear at the sides of the lock that are not sealed in resin.

Custom and personalized orders

we love customer orders! each piece we sell is custom made when ordered so size, color, and modification are most welcome!
