I decided to make them into a totem rather than a necklace, so I added a beaded band anchored around the littler bear's waist. The beads are faceted malachite, chryophase, and aragonite. I didn't use these beads for their meanings, but for their colors.
This is the third piece I've added to my new Etsy shop, "The Foxes' Garden."
