Watch out or the "Hypno Buy Me" watch will come out again...who needs gas, walk!  It's better for the earth.  Pretty jewelry will make you happy while you are walking

That is wicked cool!

My guess is 22g square and half round wire...  How close did I get?

Close enough 21g square and22g half round with a small piece of 18g on the wrap in front. Although it's not silver. It's 14k gold filled wire.
SO........Drum roll....The prize of two and a half atta boys is awarded to MrsWTownsend... Or should that be atta girls ???

I listed it.... for a lot of money. So if it sells I will spend the money on me... to compensate for the piece going away to a new home.
 I do still have some of the jade left, but it's not big enough to make another claw :(

I actually have enough to do several more pieces of jewelry but to make a claw the material has to be thick enough, and what I have left doesn't seem to be
