I can vouch for Swamps abilities. He is a very good craftsman.

Yes Swamprat- that is what I like. Do you also work with finger bones instead of beads.

PM me if you are interested in doing some custom work- thanks in advance

Check your state laws, bear "parts" are illegal trade material in Texas.

The bear claw necklace shown isn't for sale or trade, but is just to show the type of claw necklaces I make. A similar necklace could be made from the claws of any animal.
Hey, Swamps, I wasn't trying to steal your business. :D More power to anyone who gets orders these days. Do you have any photos of your work that you'd share? I'm always interested in seeing other people crafts.

Looks like he is just wanting somebody to work with what he already has. So no sale or trading of the actual material will accur. Much like taxidermy.

No no MSG, you wouldn't be stealing any "business" from me....I tend to "share" my stuff rather than sell it. By no means do I do the quality of work you do, I am very impressed with you skills and patience.

keep all those pics coming. Very nice Musselshellgal. I appreciate your perspective.
Swamp, I am way behind on seeing your craftsmanship. Please share as you see fit!

I am still working on my 1st beaver hide stretched on a natural wood twisted frame.
and my bear claws are collecting, something should be done with them. :roll:

:shock: :shock: :shock: Wow ! Im impressed. I love the turtle rattle and she turtle shell drum. I've had one of those types of turtle shells hanging on my wall since last year, wondering what I was going to do with it. Excellent idea. Nice drum and I enjoyed seeing your metal work.

Are those triangular metal things at the bottom, are they for hanging deer/game, pelts? Wow if so, how lucky can one person be, to have a monogrammed piece of artwork to hang a carcass from? :mrgreen: For the fur trapper who has everything.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I really like your knives. Really.......as in drool I really like your knives. and especially like your small hatchets. Don't see how I can live much longer without one of those. :--D
