“I’M DEAD INSIDE.” Is it a joke? A statement of fact? A Festive Mood™ for the Halloween season? That’s for you to know and everyone else to figure out! This beautiful handmade collar/choker can be made to fit any outfit or aesthetic, from pastel goths to kinky cowboys. Buy it before October 24th and get my personal guarantee that it’ll be on your neck in time for Hallo’s Eve!
This piece has many customization possibilities, so make sure to take a peek at the last two photos for color combination ideas, to see available stamps, and more. If no preferences are given, the choker will be made with no font color in the “western” font.
When choosing leather and font color, please keep in mind that contrasting colors (light colors on dark colors or visa versa) may blend into the surrounding leather more visibly. The coloring process is an art, and results vary, so with that in mind, try to be ready to respond to direct messages about the process.
This piece will be handmade when you order it, which typically takes a week or less. Handmade means you should expect your order to be similar to, yet unique from, the examples pictured.
Here is the process I go through for each choker:
2 days: Cut raw leather and sand to size, smoothing edges
2 days: Dying leather several times to ensure color vibrancy
1 day: finishing leather with top coat for weather resistance
1 day: Burnishing the edges with beeswax
1 day: installing stainless steel snaps and O-ring in middle
Therefore, processing will take 5-7 days.
This piece is lovingly handmade, which means you should expect your order to be similar to, yet unique from, the examples pictured within an acceptable range of quality. If you are ever unsatisfied within one year of the shipping date, shoot me a message and we’ll discuss it!
