I made Mensa a new collar tonight.

I cobbled this one together out of stuff I had in the *leather box* (and elsewhere). I could have made it months ago, but tonight I was taking inventory and found that I had just enough stuff to go for it.

And we all know Mensa needs another collar (to make an even dozen).







The ring in back is a descending ring rock climbers use when they (we!) have to bail on a climb before topping out. I shined it up with some steel wool and was really happy with how it turned out:



Unlike the other collars I have made Mensa, this one has practical applications. I can attach a leash to the ring and take her for a walk, which means we will be using this collar for more than just looking cool.

I *field-tested* it tonight when we walked down to the corner to get the mail:



Here's links to some of the stuff I used to slap this one together:

What a glamour girl she is with all her collars :) Very cool collar though - I am so not crafty in any way shape or form. Although I do have plans to tie dye my horse's sheet. . .she looks fantastic.

Such a creative talent you have, Chaz. I agree with Brum that you have a career in this. We are looking for a nice Gladiator themed collar in pink for our girls, incase, you need an idea.

That is fantastic! I've love to be able to make something like that for Rumor. I don't think it would serve much purpose from a practical standpoint, but it looks gorgeous.

It looks great. LOL! I can just imagine the looks my neighbors would give me if I walked Lena around the neighborhood with a collar like that.
