"Altogther" Deer Antler, Quartz Crystal, Vintage Lamp Hardware and Beaded Chain Necklace

$ 95.00

This enchanted spectacle that seems to light up a path through the forest floor is composed of a raw, unpolished piece of deer antler with the most fascinating natural grooves and ridges, a gold-tone vintage lamp hardware component perfectly fitted with a clear quartz crystal point, and adorned with upcycled chains and beaded threads salvaged from multiple necklace strands. This art piece is rich in elemental design and holds a certain recognizable warmth to it. The design is held by two strands of 4mm brass boxcar chain measuring 22.5''. 


Components discovered in Hendersonville NC, Bethel VT & Algonquin IL


After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it is preserved and/or sealed to ensure its longevity and protection. Each and every item is made by hand by owners Nathan and Ali, therefore, some small imperfections or variations may be present in your design. To us, this only adds to the beauty and rarity of your particular piece. 1888 Design does not claim ownership over the design or production of any vintage, antique, or otherwise repurposed object used in the creation of our jewelry. 

Each 1888 Design piece contains unique elements of symbolic or historic value that mean something different to us all. Let's break down what the elements in this design are


Antlers twisting and branching towards the sky atop the crown of a forest animal remind us that nature is both majestic and powerful. Antlers grow in pairs and fractal upwards branching out like the tree of life. This should remind us that all things in life exist in balance. Both beautiful and powerful, fierce, and majestic the antler serves as a symbol of protection and our innate connection to the natural world. The antler reminds us that we must exist in harmony with our environment finding balance for the benefit of all is a responsibility we are born into as stewards of our planet. An antler worn as a symbol of our deep connectedness to the wild can be a daily reminder for anyone seeking to reconnect with the rhythms of nature.


The Deer is widespread throughout mythology from all over this world. It has represented an object of worship, a messenger, an enchanter, and a reincarnation of deities. In short, the deer represents a connection to those things in life that are otherworldly, supernatural or divine.


Staving off the darkness with artificial light is as old as the discovery of fire itself. When human beings discovered fire and materials that would hold a flame for long periods of time like animal fat, they have been creating ways to illuminate the darkness. Lamp-making can be traced back to as far as 70,000 BCE with evidence found of animal fat-soaked moss in a hollowed out rock that when ignited would act as a lamp. In the Middle East, the earliest lamps had a shell shape. Now they are as good a canvas as any for human beings to craft into a myriad of decorative shapes and materials.


Quartz crystal is ideal for strength, healing, emotional clearing, meditation, and lucid dreaming.


A chain is a strong connection from one thing to another allowing it to be an excellent symbol of unity and connectedness.
