I have yet to make a necklace out of the claws of a dog I loved who passed away while I was in South America. I clipped them before I buried her. I want them secured in silver I think, and attached to a chain.
Presently I have a road kill grave yard in my back yard. I scoop up what I find and bury it, seems more human than just driving over them. Plus it is in keeping with my ideas about the earth. We should feed the earth.
