Making a Bear Claw Necklace - Part 1

A friend mentioned that he had tried to add a Bear Claw necklace to a figure but finally gave up as it was just too difficult.  To help him out and show how I go about it, and as I was currently working on just that detail, I thought I'd do a couple video segments.  Here's the first one:

  2. Enjoyed your blog, just started wood carving course recently.
