Antler lamps also compliment many other rustic elements in home decorating. In the Northwest or \"north woods\" antlers may be added to snow shoes and complimented with rawhide lamp shades to use as fabulous wall sconces. The light colored wood and rawhide lacing of the shoe, combined with the leather binding and pleasant glow of the rawhide shade, make it a wonderful match. No matter if you decide to adorn your antler lamp with southwestern light rawhide shades or western style dark rawhide lampshades, the choice is yours and the effect will be stunning.
There are also different techniques for making the antler lamps themselves. Some lamp makers use glue to hold the antlers together. Others may fasten them together with rawhide thong for a rustic Indian look. And some of the most attractive antler lamps may include a combination of being glued, drilled and screwed together, with the holes sealed for a natural look. Better quality lamps will almost always include rawhide lamp shades.
Antlers are acquired in varying qualities that are valued like rare coins. The best quality is awarded an \"A\" grade. The grading system, indirectly, has to do with the how much time the sheds lie exposed on the ground before found. The longer they are left exposed, the more they break down. New antler sheds are dark brown in color. Sheds that are not discovered quickly will begin to bleach in the sun until they become a chalky white. Another reason they loose their value is because of chew marks from small rodents and stains from wet ground or moss.
Repairing Damage: Remove the plug of your plug in hanging lamp once in a while and assess the socket if the wires and connections are good. The continuity of the cord should be flawless. Apply duct tape as needed and non-corrosive grease on all junctions, terminals and plugs to prevent corrosions.
Smaller antler chandeliers are sometimes fashioned from whitetail deer antlers while large chandeliers may have many tiers of huge elk antlers. Weather your decorating space is large or small an antler chandelier will compliment western home furnishings.
