Imitation Grizzly Claw Necklace

Wear this Necklace Imitation Bear Claw to your next event or add it to your collection!  Master Craftsman Andy Bullock made this reproduction Grizzly Claw Necklace with 3.5 inch long  maroon colored plastic Grizzly Claws.  He added a painted overlay to give them a unique look.  Andy threaded them with strips of Selvedge Edge red wool with reproduction Mustard Seed Bead edge beading.  Fancy painted round glass  beads appear between each claw.   Inside the wool, Blue Padre Beads appear between each claw.

At the top edges, Andy added drops made with Black Reproduction Wampum Beads, trade beads and Brass Hawk Bells strung on White Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing.  For the chain, he strung several spotted Trade Beads, Large White Center Red Beads, and Old Fashioned Brass Beads.  The top is smoke colored Deerskin Leather Lacing.

Grizzly Claw necklaces were emblems of bravery for Native Americans. A complete necklace could take years to assemble. Some tribes believed such ornaments were sacred and held special ceremonies to honor them.  This Necklace Imitation Bear Claw measures approximately 17 inches long overall.  You can adjust the fit with the Deerskin Leather Lacing.  One of a Kind!
