Both of these dog collars are outfitted for severe duty. Geared towards the protection industry or if you’re looking for a really cool one of a kind collar, you’ve arrived.
I just thought I’d share my latests works. Prior to these pieces I’ve been on the mend. A big shout out to Lisa Sylvester on her birthday today! Happy Birthday Lisa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here’s my latest Hand tooled leather leash ready for this show season. If you were wondering where I am located the answer is New Castle Delaware USA. 60 seconds from Delaware Memorial Bridge.
This leash is 1″ wide and has 40+” of tooling, all hand stitched with edges burnished to perfection. Oiled, airbrushed in multiple layers of British tan finally a top poly type finish. All leather articles require an ongoing maintenance regime ie. A quality leather conditioner/dressing assists removing dirt, replenishing natural oils etc… I have to say that but this poly finish I use on all projects in addition to a finish that has a UV protecting additive is remarkably adherent. A collar that I just couldn’t get the turquoise color correct ut um…. 5th time was a winner.. After applying finish to one of the scrap yard pieces I soaked into hot water and scrubbed 45 minutes with a stainless steel scrub thing in an attempt to remove finish from collar. I barely breached it. I might as well say I used a hand-held grinder to it and breached the finish. I did this for my knowledge so I could know hands down I am bringing to my clients not just a unique leather item but an heirloom possibly.
Where there it is my friends, my latest leash of which I quickly admit, I am no photographer and shows better than any picture I can take:}
P.S. The leash has a solid brass snap with a brilliant chrome plating. Should anyone have further questions concerning this piece, having a custom-made collar, matching leash, belt and beyond drop a line to –> firstname.lastname@example.org or comment here.
Have a great day everyday!

The dragonflies wasn’t a plan for sure but the hearts was. The fuchsia color was hard for me to get a photograph revealing it’s true boldness. If safety, comfort and style is something you consider when shopping for your special pal your here X.
These panels have history at least six(6) generations from the Oregon trail days. It has been a pleasure to work piece of such size. Really gives you the space to envision. This job is not a special order, rather an order from a gallery where one would order from a book. There are good lessons to be learned though. Practicing your technique in even dye coverage and not getting my voodoo black all over everything else. Actually blue is my most feared color. I’ve wore blue to more than one outing. I mean a whole hand blue from spilled oil dye. On all the straight cuts I use a scale to ensure straight lines. Looks much nicer without any wiggles in your work.
