These are the pinky claws from the badger they are much thinner than the thicker center claws. But they are JUST as beautiful. This necklace features 20 authentic badger claws. Badger stands for boundaries and natural aggression. Badger is a respected brother of both desert and forest. Its long sharp claws enable it to dig burrows. Burrows that once no longer used by badger, support burrowing owls. Both animals are natural enemies but neither can survive without the other. Interesting concept that goes with the native teachings of all life is sacred and connected. This badger was not wasted. Its meat went to help feed injured birds of prey at the local raptor rehab center. Her hide was tanned and made into a ceremonial headdress, in no way was this animal at any time disrespected.

Buffalo stands for protection and I chose the blue glass beads for healing. black buffalo beads for the spirit world.
