If you don't have a metal frame to make your mica lamp shades, don't worry there is another option, though it may require a little more work! Take 4 or 6 coat hangers. Bend one of those hangers into the shape of a circle. Use a mug or a round container to get the desired shape. Do the same with another hanger and make it larger so that it can be the lower rim. Take 3 or 4 hanger pieces cut to the same measurement and connect both rims with them leaving equal spaces between them. Now comes the slightly harder part.
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.
Do not be afraid to try out different styles for your new replacement lamp shade as there is no reason to be stuck with the same old traditional lamp shade. Try a different shape or size and see how that fits into your home.
Antler lamps also accompany many other western elements in home decor. In the Northwestern states or "north woods" antlers may be attached to snow shoes and complimented with rawhide lamp shades
