Antlers seem to invoke something so primal and of the deep forest, for they reflect the wildness of the majestic deer that carry them.
Antlers also remind me of the ancient deer goddesses who wore the antlers on their head as a sign of respect and connection to the deer of the land, and to their guides. And how often they would shapeshift into deer and run through the forests wild and free.
Of Cernunnos the Celtic horned shaman and,
Diana goddess of the hunt and the moon…..
These days I have so many naturally shed antlers in my studio, they seem to be everywhere I turn, and I simply could not ignore them any longer, for they were asking to be made into beautiful things!
This is what I have come up with so far…..
These pretties will come with me to the Woman’s Winter Faire this week-end and then will be up at the shop next week.
Have a wonderful week-end everyone!
