          drill holes in the claws.. they have to bone in...not just the casing. then wrap them in otter fur (to replace the bear hair) ..make sure the hole goes throught the otter as well, then string them up with whatever beads you are using... If you only have the casings and not the bone in... then fill it in with off white fimo and shape the top llike the bone and then make a hole in it before you bake them in the oven . Also if you want to shine those claws up nicely...go buy a 3-1 buffing pad from walmart.. about 1.00 and it's for nails...three separate areas in concession for makeing them smooth and shiny without damage.

                    I remember seeing a craft magazine article on how to construct one but it will take me forever to find it. Basically, you drill holes thru the base of the claws and then sew them to a rolled fabric rope-like core. Its this core piece which is covered with a long strip of otter fur, winding around between the claws. If you have very large claws you may want to drill a second set of holes in them. You string large trade beads through these second holes to act as spacers for the claws. Many necklaces had the head and/or tail of the otter left hanging down the back. There are definite tribal styles for beadwork decoration so you may want to try to track down some museum examples for the tribal style you want.

                        Blackbear, I've seen some of Tis Mal Crow's work, but no, I was not thinking of that. I was trying to recall an old hobbyist magazine, like Moccasin Tracks or Powwow Trails which had an article on construction. (I think!) The filing cabinet in my head is getting too big and stuff is getting lost! Somewhere I have an index to all my craft mags but I can't find that either!

                        dance til you die might also ask his question in the straight dance forum as I know at least a couple of those folks have made otter/claw necklaces.
