Spur Necklace

Show off those long spurs by wearing them as a necklace or stringing them around your favorite wide-brimmed hat!

  1. Draw two guidelines across the turkey’s leg on either side of the spur for the saw to follow. The lines mark a section of leg bone slightly wider than the spur.

  2. Cut through the scale and bone. Hacksaws, jeweler's saws and band saws work well.

  3. Peel the dried scale and skin from the bone. A sharp knife will trim the skin around the base of the spur. Make sure you don't cut the spur cap from the bone!

  4. Clean the leg bone by scraping with a knife, sanding with sand paper and steel wool and polishing it with a buffing tool.

  5. Note that the leg bone is hollow. You can string the spurs on heavy monofilament fishing line (15 to 30 lb. test line works best).

  6. Beads may be added as spacers.

  7. Tie off the line to finish or add a clasp or a barrel connector. You can find these fastening devices at hobby shops and jewelry supply stores.
