Collar chains can be worn on shirt collars as a fun accessory for any ensemble. They also make cute accessories on jean jackets and can be used as sweater chains. This collar chain features brick stitch squirrels on either end, with dangling acorns between them. Becky used TOHO Aiko seed beads for consistent color and precise shape.
