Stafford Viking Dog Collars by Wodenswolf Stafford Viking Dog Collars by Wodenswolf
Set of custom dog collars for a pack of Staffords called Bea, Filska and Taz.
I took the basic of my hand of doom design:

and incorporated the Stafford knots, added the dogs' names in runes and put it all into the leather - this is the first time I am actually really satisfied a collar I have made and even with all 3 of them...

Fantastic work! And these look like they could last for centuries. :o How much do you charge for this sort of collars? Just curious.

Gorgeous work, as usual. Your handcrafts never stop to amaze me. I'd love to have such a collar for my own Lapponian Herder. :)

Hrm. I guess it might give the wrong message if I started wearing collars, huh?

How do the metal studs hold up to weather? Presumably dogs can be expected to do dogly things, like get wet. And the leather itself will survive, sure, but how does the dye do? (I assume you've considered all this; it's for my own curiosity.)

Love the slight variation in base color among the three of them. All tied together in basic design, but all unique.

These are utterly fabulous. I love your leatherworks. They not only look lovely, but look like they'd feel lovely too! Those are some lucky, lucky dogs!
