The antler has a deer hoof I carverd into the base of the antler then torched to highlight it. It is then all buffed up for a nice shine. The center rod is wrapped in a light gold colored buckskin. I have added a few brass & ceramic painted beads to a leather strip. The antler has nice angle for using over your shoulder. The antler measures 3 1/2". The total length is 18" long. Can make another close to it!
