Lookin for a little advise on bear claws/teeth. I got teeth i just finished pulling (boiled loose). I also have 3 feet worth of claws (not sure were #4 went). Im lookin to put it all on a necklace for my rearview mirror. Tryin to get a few pointers on the best way to polish it all, and cant deside, quick in or out of the claws, not sure which way i like better. So which will be easier to work with putting on a necklace, and which will stand the test of time better. All  :twocents: welcome and appreciated.

Great post and pics. Not trying to add a sales pitch here, but if you bring them to me we stick the claws (which don't have to be cleaned off real well) in with our dermestid beetle colony and they clean EVERYTHING off down to the last stitch of tissue, leaving only the claw and nail pedicle. They do and awesome job and it only takes about 2 days to complete a full set of claws.
