Paracord Inspiration

So photography has been on the back burner lately. Anyone that knows me knows I have quite a few rather eclectic hobies. So long as I am being creative in some way I stay happier, combine that with being frugal and you have my latest endeavor…. paracord collars. Why? Because I am too cheap to buy one from someone when I could make one.

Here are just a few photos of some of my recent creations.

Many of you already saw this one if you visited Luna’s blog to read all about our first official Dove hunt. It is a great blaze collar for our hunting season, whether actually hunting or running the woods, I like that it adds extra visibility especially since Luna is kinda deer colored.

(on a side note, blaze is apparently a really hard color for the camera to capture accurately)

A training client of mine got wind of the collar I made Luna and asked for blaze ones for her pups as well as a steeler themed one.  Took a little thinking to figure out how to get 2 colors going but I love how it turned out.

We went with a King Cobra pattern for a beagle friend, and I am so glad I ended up reworking it to get an edge in black… it had too much yellow before, now it’s great.

Naturally I had to make Luna pose with the collars too, who knew they would make a good crown?

(PS. I think I see a hint of some grey under that chin Luna… noooo)

Here are some I made and sent to Luna’s family down in texas

Luna’s half sister Birdy was especially excited to get a new yellow collar as yellow is such a hard color to find.  We hope to add more to her stash soon.  The blue one went to Luna’s littermate Gunnar.

I’m about to make an order for more colors so I can make more for Vizsla family members.
More colors and pictures can be seen in the paracord album on my facebook page.  I end up taking quite a few with the phone to share. Hopefully I will get some pics in of the customers wearing them.   Probably a good thing I am making them for others as Luna has far too many collars already.

Oh and I revamped the website after creating a new one for my mom (she breeds and sells canaries btw). Way overdue for both, but hey at least it’s done. Well work is done, so off to make a neon green collar for Whisky.

    Great collars. Seems to be quite popular right now as I have seen a few of my friends made them. I like the blaze orange one a lot.

  3. Very nice! Love the colors and your work!
