I took a Bull Elk in New Mexico this year. I am trying to find a place that will make me a necklace for each of my daughters with the ivories. The places I found seem to sell them with ivories they supply. Can anyone help me out with some info. Thanks
Go to a jeweler that makers jewelry, not just sells it. I am negotiating right now with a jeweler to make me a ring with one of my elk ivories from my PA elk. The expense is for the metal. I am going to get a price from them for a ring if I supply the gold. I don't know if you want to deal long distance but here is the contact info if you want it. https://www.facebook.com/oletownejewelry/
kfb jewelers on main street in chambersburg make great elk ivory rings and things they made my wife and i nice rings. They have a nice display of elk ivory, Check them out i will recommend them they do good work.
Are you still looking for a person to make you one? If so send me a PM and I can look up the contact info of the guy I used. Pretty sure his Name is Mark Miller. I found him on the Eastmans forum. Off top of my head his handle was maybe 25contender and he is in North Carolina.
I got a dozen of them in a drawer. My wife would beat me if I got her a neckless made of elk ivory. I saved bear claws for a long time....finally gave them away when it was apparent I was never going to do anything with them.
