Default Help me design a Paco for Jackson

Okay, okay, I'm psycho. I thought I was getting over this collar addiction. I had bought a little 1/2" skull collar from Paco a few weeks ago during their sample sale, but I think it was a littleee too narrow for Jackson for my preference. So I sold it (the paco addicts FB page is amazing) and shipped it out.

So now I just want to design a new one. I still wanted the skull theme, just a bit bigger. I found out Paco has these brass skull conchos (I like him in brass better anyway) http://ravenswoodleather.com/index.php?p=product&id=854 ... and they're 1" however if they're turned to the side, they will fit on a 3/4" wide collar.

So I'm trying to decide how I want it designed. I'm not very creative...

I drew this:


(and yes, I realize my 'skulls' look more like peanuts )

I was thinking a name plate (like the Double Agent collar) in the middle, with the skulls on each end, and in between that some brass diamond shapes.

But... any other ideas? I'm not 100% on the name plate thing yet. I know it will increase the cost, so not totally sure.

Any other design ideas would be awesome. I'm not a huge fan of rhinestones, for the most part, but willing to hear any and all ideas

I have a collar with those brass skulls....
- they might spin on a single layer collar
- they won't look good on a 3/4" collar (they barely fit on the 1" part of Talla's collar)

You can see the skulls on the collar in this photo:

Oh, darn... thanks for letting me know! They told me that they would fit on a 3/4 collar but yeah, it looks like it'd be a pretty tight squeeze? Hmmm, might have to re-think my options... Darn, I was all excited about brass skulls! lol.

You can always order smaller brass skulls and mail them to Paco:

I really like your design idea! I think it would be cool to do something like this:

[ 8O <> o FETCHING TAG o <> O8 ]


*80 = skull, <> = diamond, o = solid colored stone
