    Depends on what exactly are you wanting. Are you looking to make something that looks like a necklace or something else???

    Had a friend use an otter hide to re-fur his cleaned claws then use trade beads for decoration and spacing, and a tyupe of wire for stringing. Is that what you mean???
    We the unwilling, lead by the unknowing, have been doing so much with so little, for so long, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

        Small or Large necklace?

        Are you making a choker type necklace or are you wanting to make a large dance type?

        Necklace type would be OK, but if you are wanting to make the large one for dancing, DO you have the right to wear one?

        Our people on both sides can only wear one if they are either given one or a decendent of the chieftain line. Not everyone or anyone can wear one.

        Do hope that the necklace style is what you are making.
        this is all i have to say

            On the flip side of things, ANYONE where I'm from can wear a bearclaw necklace. Wether or not it stays with you however, is another thing. We have quite a few straight dancers, but we call them "freestyle." Some of them even dance with masks. Anyhow... just representing another side of the coin. :)

              Hello Ladies!

              by Nashoba
              When making a T-Dress what types of fabrics do you use? Can they be made from prints broadcloth? or are we supposed to use solid colors only. What colors? I am making another one in solid, dark blue color with ribbons. My other one was solid silky type dark red. Just curious if I can use prints?
