A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to talk with Sara, the artist who started DogCollarCharms.com. Dog Collar Charms lets people take any photo or image and turn it into a unique, personalized dog charm for their dog’s collar. The story behind this creative business is pretty cool. Sara had been working with glass jewelry for a long time when one day, she created a charm with a photo of her sons and wasn’t sure what to do with it. She was sitting in her studio looking at it when her Wheaten Terrier started barking. She clipped the charm onto Yogi’s collar and – poof! – the idea behind her business was born. Yogi’s new accessory got a ton of attention at the dog park and Sara started making charms for everyone who wanted one.
With the new baby getting all the attention around our place lately, the Great Danes were feeling a little left out. So we thought we’d help them get in on the action with a cute new dog charm of their own. Buying the charm online is an easy, three-step process.
First, you upload the picture. We chose to use a photo of Some Boy.
Then, you adjust the image so that it’s the correct size and is zoomed in just right.
Finally, you choose the border color you want.
The charms are $24.95 each and show up in a matter of days. All pictures come out sepia-toned on one-sided charms that easily attach to your dog collar the same way their ID tag does.
Hati looked nice and refined in her new accessory.
Loki, the ham of the family, likes all the attention she gets with her new dog charm. And as much as she seems to like Some Boy, I think she enjoys showing the little guy off around her neck.
