Last picture in this listing is a photo of the actual artist. I also donated items to various prisons to help fund their Native American programs and help those who can not help themselves. Inedible meat is donated to zoos and local raptor rehab facilities. I also carry real wolf, mountain lion and bear items on my direct website but they’re not allowed for sale through this venue. This claw has 20 authentic badger. (I-No-Li) claws coated in a protective finish so that they will last a lifetime. These are the thick front claws. This necklace features 20 authentic badger claws. Badger stands for boundaries and natural aggression. Badger is a respected brother of both desert and forest. Its long sharp claws enable it to dig burrows. Burrows that once no longer used by badger, support burrowing owls. Both animals are natural enemies but neither can survive without the other. Interesting concept that goes with the native teachings of all life is sacred and connected. This is the necklace you will receive. Necklace measures 22 long. Largest claws measure 1.5 around the curve measured professionally. Beads are made from white buffalo bone carved beads. Buffalo stands for protection and I chose the blue glass beads for healing. Black beads for the spirit world. American Badgers are NON-endangered. Leather used comes from Mule deer or Odocoileus hemionus Bone/horn beads on this item are made from domestic raised buffalo: Bubalus bubalis I do not use endangered species on my items.
