Featured Artists:

Len & Candy Kay

Len & Candy are masters of their craft specializing in intricate carvings from deer antler with very strong traditional style and amazing detail.
The carvings are made from the base of naturally caste off deer antlers so no animal has been harmed in any way.

While Len may carve most of these designs again, due to the nature of the antler and the fact that they are hand carved, no two pieces can ever be exactly the same.

All carvings are supplied complete with a traditional style cord & bag.
Most cords are hand made from black waxed braid with a loop and bone or jade toggle fitted. A woven flax presentation case and information on the meaning of the design is also included.
Cords & Packing Detail

Fast airmail shipping worldwide is now from just US$6.95 for up to 5 pendants.
All pricing is in US$.

As these carvings can never be replaced if lost in transit, we highly recommend choosing one of the courier delivery option.

Deer Antler Carvings:

These are carved from the crown which is the base of the antler.
Antler is a very unique type of bone with a beautiful range of subtle natural colours and an amazing texture which makes it look and feel almost identical to whale bone.
Featuring stunning artistry, skill and very thick bone for a true 3D masterpiece.

These carvings are designed to be worn but also make stunning display pieces when mounted in their crown.

The sizes shown are for the carvings only, and do not include the display crown/frame
