I was fortunate to take a nice brown bear recently. I am having the hide tanned but have not decided what to do with it yet.....full mount or rug. However...I have always wanted a large bear claw necklace. So my question.....is it possible to pull the biggest claw off of this hide when it returns from the tannery, then replace it with an imitation claw so I don't botch the full mount or rug? And...if so....any suggestions on the best way to finish the claw for a necklace?
Thanks in advance
