“Personalized Beaded Dog Collar – Size Medium” Downloadable Beading Tutorial #6534

After designing the “Mix Bead Collar” for our tiny little rescue, I wanted to design something unique for my slightly larger “puppy”, a 98lb Doberman/Hound mix that Cara rescued for me a few years ago.  We came up with a very cool design that is completely customizable.  It looks like a loom project but is done with beading wire and No Loom!  You can stitch in your pet’s name or any combination of their name, fun symbols (like the hearts above), funny phrase (such as “Santa’s Helper” or “I Love Ruffin’ It!”), or even your phone number and/or address (so you can eliminate their tag if you want – or attach it to the  beaded collar if you prefer).  There’s no end to the possibilities; you’ll want to make several – I have!  This is a great collar to show off your pet (not to mention your mad beading skills) so don’t be surprised if you start taking your pooch for more walks about town!

This pattern, featuring over 60 high resolution full color photos and easy to follow step by step directions, will show and tell you how to make your furry, medium to large breed friend a personalized collar approximately 7/8″ wide and anywhere from 14” to 20” long (keeping length proportional with the collar width).  I include patterns (both wide & narrow) for each alphabet letter and numbers 0-9 as well as some punctuation marks and lots of fun symbols.  I also offer some helpful tips for choosing successful color schemes, bead types, and finishes so you get a great result.  This design uses a .75 inch standard plastic side-release buckle (just like the ones on most pet collars) so taking it on and off is a snap!  This collar was designed to be both comfortable and durable, and should hold up to regular wear for many years to come.  Note:  This collar was designed as “Pet Jewelry” only and should not be used or relied upon as a restraint or as a collar you intend to attach a lead or restraint to for walks or any other purpose.  That’s my disclaimer.  :  )  So go ahead, spoil your furry best friend with a custom collar that will make him or her look bead-utifle!  Have fun and “Bead Happy”!  Note: Similar patterns also available in Large, Small and X-Small sizes (X-Small are pur-fect for cats, toy breeds and puppies).

Recommended Materials:
–  8-10lb FireLine beading thread
–  #12 long beading needle
–  3/4 inch (20mm) Parachute Buckle or plastic side release buckle (look for ones without built in whistle (a few styles have one protruding from the side) and preferably “Non-adjustable”, though these are hard to find.  Because this is a beaded collar, it is not adjustable.

–  8/0 seed beads x (2-3) colors
–  Flush cutter
–  2x2mm Crimp Beads/Tubes
