Recent Works: Dog collar "Skadi"

This collar is a kind of prototype. Though it is not the first dog collar I have ever made, it is still a new design I thought out over a longer period. This collar itself contains some minor optical imperfections - I wasn't that accurate while working on it, not knowing if it would turn out to fulfil my demands - just wanted to avoid wasting time. ;)
I made it and started trying it with my Saarlooswolfdog bitch Skadi directly.
It showed that this design works pretty well and combines functionality with noble appearance - just like it should.
This piece is only riveted instead of sewn - in the future I will prefer a combination of both for the ultimate safety of the dog.
The inner side is padded which results in a better wearing comfort for the dog.
When looking at the picture, please mind that the collar was already in a somewhat used condition when the photo was taken.

phenomenal work, simple elegant and looks usable, you may have a market if you keep them under $80. Love the designs of the other ornate collars online, but I want a workable collar I can afford.
