    I have a client who is a Bear hunter and guide. He wants to have a Bear claw necklace made. He's describing something that may require a silversmith/jeweler/artisan. He wants the base of each claw inserted into a little silver "cup" and strung into a necklace. Do any of you out there know who might be able to do this work? Especially looking for someone in the northern Wisconsin or Michigan UP. Failing that, anywhere.
    Thanks all,

    contact wolfwoman on here, i know she does some of that type work, and she might be able to steer you in the right direction, or get it done for you, Russ

  3. Any Silversmith/ Jewellry designer should be able to do it for you! I've had Black bear, Cougar and Grizzly done before. In my opinion the hammer finish (center) looks more rugged/wild than a smooth polished look!
