Another collar going out today. I don't think I would have chosen this color combination myself, but it turned out quite nicely.

A special request collar for a friend of +Greyhounds of Fairhaven  at the Arizona Renaissance Faire.
This is a collar I completed today for a friend. I haven't done this design for a quite a while, but I really like it. For something a little extra, I had the leaves "progress" through the turning of color.

First post on Google+ from Carpe Canem! I am +Michael Sheldon, the leathersmith for Carpe Canem. I make all of the #leather #martingale #collars , and all of the jingle bell collars. The picture below is Ruby (SJ Aruba) wearing the Roses collar. The design is hand-cut and embossed into the leather, then stained and/or painted.
