This bear claw is cast in solid bronze, weighs an impressive 28 grams and is every bit as awe inspiring as as the animal which once bore it. The bear claw is cast from a museum-quality replica of a Black bear claw, a mighty animal which makes the forests of British Columbia its home. Every tiny detail of the original claw is replicated in the bronze, from the fissures of the knuckle to the grooves and channels in the claw itself.

If you look carefully you can even see the growth ridges and battle scars this claw would have once witnessed.

My wife designed the spiral motif which is carved into all our talons and claws, and it really gives the piece a uniqueness and resonance of its own - I love the synchronicity of her design with the claw. The piece is completely reversible, and can be worn so the spiral can be kept as your secret.

Measuring 2" from top to tip, it's easy to see how this huge animal is so dominating in its habitat. The claw hangs from a carefully positioned jump ring which gives the piece a great balance, and I've hung this one on approximately 1 meter of the finest Spanish brown leather. Also included is a Lost Apostle bronze clasp, which allows you to not only adjust the necklace to whatever length you want to wear it, but also saves having to tie a messy great knot in the leather itself.

Like all my jewelry, this bear claw is cast in the finest jewelers bronze and polished and finished entirely by hand. A patina is applied to the piece to really bring out the spiral detail and all the intricacies of the claw itself, and finally a special process is applied to the piece to stop it from tarnishing - this is one claw that will look after itself.
