Above is a picture of a beaded dog collar strip.  Each beaded strip has to be adjusted to the size of the collar.  With the correct size of the collar Don can then determine how long the beaded strip should be and then proceeds to design a bead pattern for this collar. Every size collar will always have a custom size beaded strip. Once the length of the beaded strip is determined Don will then design a bead pattern to fit this collar. After this process Barb will then hand bead each beaded strip on a loom.
