A company called Mia Dog Collars recently sent me one of its unique, handcrafted dog collars.
I am so impressed with the collar!
It is absolutely beautiful and so well made.
Bojana is a jewelry designer and founder of the jewelry line MiaGems where she makes bracelets, earrings, necklaces and more. Yes, for people! She sent me a bracelet and it is just gorgeous!
Recently, she decided to start designing dog collars in addition to her jewelry.
“I wanted to create something in the memory of my first dog and best friend who went to the rainbow bridge,” Bojana said.

Her dog Boni passed away in 2012, and Bojana now has two dogs – Bella Boo (pictured) and Mili.
“Every story has an end, but in life, every end is a new beginning,” Bojana said on her web site. “My new beginning has two names, Bella Boo and Mili, and together we decided that we will create something to remember Boni. That is how Mia Dog Collars was born.”
More about the handcrafted Mia Dog Collars
Throughout this post, you’ll see a variety of the collars Bojana has designed through Mia Dog Collars. I can’t really explain how pretty they are, but I think the photos speak for themselves.
Each collar is unique, ranging in price from about $40 to $70, depending on the size and style.
The collars are currently available in small (adjustable in length from 8 1/2 to 11 1/2 inches) and medium (adjustable from 10 1/2 to 13 1/2 inches).
When she first had the idea of making collars, Bojana said she received feedback from people who owned small, medium and large dogs. However, the owners of extra small to medium dogs were more interested in purchasing the collars, so that’s what she focused on first.
Larger collars will also be available later this week (adjustable from 14 to 18 inches), according to Bojana.
She said she loves the creative process. She is self taught and constantly learning.
“I am really grateful to do what makes me happy, devoting my time to it completely,” she said on her web site. “And I truly believe I am doing things that people like.”

According to MiaDogCollars.com:
1. Each collar is handcrafted and made on a leather base.
2. Collars include a mixture of gemstones, pearls and crystals.
3. Prices start at $40 per collar.
4. Perfect for extra small, small and medium dogs! (larger collars available too)
Is there anything not so good about the collars?
- Not the best for puppies or dogs that might chew or swallow small pieces.
- Currently, there are no collars large enough for my 70-pound dog, who needs an 18 to 21 inch collar.
Would you like to win a Mia Dog Collar for your dog?
The first is a Christmas collar (pictured). Bojana designed it specifically for this drawing! The Christmas collar is a medium (adjustable length from 10 ½ to 13 ½ inches). The width is 1/2 inch.
The second collar is the handcrafted collar pictured below. It is also a size medium. This is the collar I received, but since it’s too small for Ace I decided to send it to one of you.
To enter the drawings:
Leave a comment to let me know your dog wants in. There will be two separate drawings, and you can enter one drawing or both. Those who don’t specify will be entered in both.
*Contest runs through Sunday Dec. 14. We think we can get the winners their collars before Christmas, but no guarantees! Must have a mailing address in the contiguous United States to win. Or, you can have the collar mailed to a friend or rescue group here as a gift.
*Update: Contrats to Anna (blue collar) and Emma #1 (holiday collar)!
