K9 collarcouture by FRIDA HULTEN
I have for many years been making necklaces for dogs, and it makes me so happy to see how comfortable most dogs are in a necklace. I have also been making dog collars. It has always bothered me that the collar has to come off when the necklace goes on. Most dog owners like to keep the collar on, always. With this design, a detachable necklace, the owner can adorn their dog when they wish.
This is not only a Dog Collar, it is a Dog Collar with a detachable necklace. When designing this piece I had to consider a simple secure way of attaching the necklace while the dog is wearing the collar. The collar also had to have a luxurious feel without the necklace.
I am using a very nice quality leather with solid brass buckle, D ring and two smaller D rings rivets with a swivel head. The necklace is attached to the collar with a toggle bar in brass that is connected to a solid copper chain. From the chain hangs solid brass beads, turquoise, aventurine, chrysocolla, garnet, glass beads and swarovski. The collar Length 390mm Width 25mm Necklace Length 230mm Width 140mm
