The atarah, which really means "crown", is the "collar" - the part around the neck that usually has the blessing on it that one says while donning a tallit.  I believe that the reason the prayer is usually put there, is so the wearer can read the blessing. But if one has the blessing memorized, then why not have something on the atarah that is meaningful to the wearer? In the past, I've embroidered or appliqued verses from the Torah, prayers, beautiful quotes that resonated with the wearer, a line from a Hebrew song, many symbols and designs. It's all up to you. The ends can be squared off or pointed. This is another opportunity to create exactly what you want. 

Below are examples of what some people have chosen.  Please click on a photo and scroll through them for ideas. I know the thumbnails are blurry, but when you click on them, they will become clear.
