Hey I have a bunch of Black Bear claws and am gonna make a Mountain man necklace for fun. I am pretty sure how I am going to make it....would love to see some examples if anyone has one they have made. Believe it or not Boulder Colorado (liberalville) is homebase for me and I think I will start wearing it around town just to see what people say....ha...

Friend of mine, outdoor writer from CA has the most beautifull one I have ever seen. Talked to a jewler frined and asked what it would cost to do one like it. Lost all interest in having one done. All his claws were set in gold. But man it was pretty.

From: Adventurewriter Date: 12-Apr-10
I was thinking of more wrapping the bases in rawhide and a few touches of maybe blue and red earthtone paint....sort of like and Indian might have....I want one to look authentic

Whoa set in gold sounds interesting for sure...

Adventurewriter,

I would like for you to post pics if you get the necklace done. I have been saving some claws for a couple of years to do just that but just never got around to it and I am not exactly a creative "artsy" kind of guy. Nothing fancy, but something along the lines of what you describe could be interesting and kind of neat.

i have claws and really want to make a necklace please posts some pics

From: Adventurewriter Date: 13-Apr-10
I have several other projects going right now so it won't be anytime soon but for sure I will post a picture.

I'm not sure I am going to do it like this but if you were to cut maybe 1/4 inch 'wafers' from a small diammeter deer horn for spacers....and a few turquiose beads which should be easy to get online or a local bead shop it should be a good start. Really easy to take copper wire and make a clasp and pound it flat with a hammer so you have two opposing S shapes...

This is a really basic claw necklace I did with canine teeth and lava and coral beads.

A few months back somebody started a Bear Claw Necklace thread and I posted this photo. This is an bear claw necklace made by an Algonquin Indian from the Eagle Village First Nation near Kipawa Quebec.

Greatbasin, That looks like the bottom jaw to a great white shark !! very neat that took some time to make....

Anyone have a good jeweler that can do a good job making a single grizz claw pendant? With just a simple silver or gold cap style…

here is mine....side 2

14k gold, platinum arrow, a ruby in the crude arrow head.

The piece it nicer in person of course and it is not particularly clean or shiny new any more.

So I'd say yes to the question above.

i have taken these pictures in SUPER macro mode to show as much detail as possible but it makes the claws appear 'ruff' ... they are actually hand buffed polished to a beautiful shine ...

From: medicinemann Date: 28-Dec-10
