The pink beaded collar

Perhaps you remember the pink beaded collar I made for Fleur?


Yesterday, I finally got it finished.  I had not been using it on Fleur due to the weight (remember her neck had been injured) and the edge needed something.....but I was not sure what.



A few days ago, while enjoying time with other RVers, I asked the ladies for ideas on finishing the edge of the collar...we looked at round silver beads, round black beads, delica seed beads in different colors, and the after trying these ideas, Jan said that she had something that would work.  She got out a packet of black metallic cylindrical shaped beads, and said "try these".  The following pictures are showing the results.

So for all you who think pink is great on female greyhounds, what do you think?

    1. I thought that you would say "queenly" instead of "princess-y" ! After all, I've outlived the other royal hounds in my realm.

    1. Fleur goes out among her subjects every day, and while she doesn't always wear her crown, she does wear the royal jewels!

    1. Thanks Lynne, glad you like the color. I was afraid that the pink would not look as good on a while and tan hound, as it would on a black hound.
