February’s arrival is late! But it looks forward to the end of winter and the hope of spring. Our Bear necklace is a reminder of the coming warmth and the bears awakening from their hibernation. Each one of these is hand braided with both braintan and barktan leather for a delightful color contrast. Not only is the pewter pendent of a bear, but he has left two pewter paw prints behind too. The braid of this necklace measures roughly 24 inches and it has a lobster clasp in the back of it for both safely and the ease of taking on and off. One of the joys of a handmade item is that if you need the braid a different length you can always contact me. Each Bear necklace may have differences in the colors of the leathers in the braid, however it will always be a mix of both braintan and barktan leather tanned by my husband. Do you know someone who would enjoy a handcrafted Bear necklace?

Last fall I got the closest I’ve ever been to a wild bear while riding bikes with my son. A bear cub actually ran out of the brush and crossed right in front of us. We were extremely busy just trying to get stopped quick enough that we didn’t collide with it. It is not a memory either of us is bound to forget. What bear stories do you have?
