Even non-hunters can appreciate the timeless, rustic look offered from deer antler chandeliers. These magnificent works of art look stunning when displayed in a home or cabin. If you want to know to get your hands on an antler chandelier, keep reading and I'll tell you some of the top places to find antler chandeliers and even ways you can make your own.
If you don't know what a deer antler chandelier is, let me give you a quick explanation - basically, they are fully functional, decorative chandeliers constructed using deer antlers. Some people craft them with the antlers from whitetail deer, mule deer, elk and even moose. It's unknown who the first person to craft one was, but their popularity has quickly spread with people and cultures from all over the world now using them.
The great thing about deer antler chandeliers is the unique, rustic they bring to a place. Antlers are one of the few items found in nature that are durable enough for use in crafts and projects, such as chandeliers. There's just something about the look and beauty of antlers that attracts people to them. Decorating your cabin or home with antlers is a perfect way to add a unique touch of style to an otherwise dull area.
Where Can I Find Deer Antler Chandeliers?
Both companies and people produce antler chandeliers, so you'll have a few different choices available to buy them from. Before I tell you where, let me first say that you're probably not going to find these chandeliers for sale in local stores. For whatever the reason, most retail stores don't carry this type of chandeliers. In fact, the only time I've seen them for sale in person is at a hunting and sports store.
You're best bet is to look online for antler chandelier dealers. There are many hobbyists who invest many hours into perfecting their chandeliers, after which they sell them online through their website or someone elses.
Another place to look for an antler chandelier is on Craigslist. I've seen dozens of beautifully crafted pieces for sale at great prices listed here. The only real downside is that you'll have to travel locally to pick it up. However, this also means you wont have to shell out big bucks for shipping costs.
Of course you can also opt to craft your own if you have the materials and knowledge on how to do so. You can find step-by-step instructions online and wiring kits sold at most hardware stores. Even if it doesn't come out perfect the first time, with a little bit of practice, you'll eventually craft the perfect chandelier.
