Custom Arrow Drum Chandelier: Handmade With Solid Wood & Genuine Rawhide
Our custom arrow drum chandelier is a one-of-a-kind work of fine art that is combination of master craftsmanship and historic design. Drums are an extremely important aspect of Native American culture, and this handmade lighting fixture celebrates the Arapaho ceremonial drum. Hand crafted with a genuine rawhide and exotic old growth cedar, this custom arrow drum chandelier has been built by our talented craftsman to last forever.
The drum is a sacred symbol to Native Americans that is believed to have the power to influence the elements, communicate with the spirit world, and even heal sickness. Considered to be humanity's first musical instrument, the oldest drum found in the Americas dates back to 700 CE, though they've been used for ceremonies much longer than that. Many styles exist including single head, double-head, and water drums that are used and played in a variety of ways.
Add a Hand Made Chandelier to Your Unique Home
Our custom arrow drum chandelier is built with the built using the age old, tried and tested method of mortise and tenon joined construction. The drum chandelier features a twin arrow design that is heat branded into the rawhide diffuser. This branding process ensures that the image becomes permanent and will never fade or rub away. The diffuser itself is hand tied with lace grade rawhide. Rawhide is considered to be more durable for leather, and its most popular use is for drumheads. It is also popular for use in lampshades, and all fine quality rawhide lampshades are made with goatskin due to its pliability and translucence. Just like is the case in all of our leather furnishings, we use only the finest quality, American goatskin rawhide for our lampshades. Our rawhide is designed to create the perfect ambiance so there's no harsh light on you or any of your decor. We never use anything but genuine, top grade natural materials because fine are is never made from low quality faux materials.
The meticulous finish has been done in the age old technique using a 23-step hand rubbed process beginning with fine hand sanding, and infused hand applied stains. There are then 20 additional steps requiring the application of wax, oils and lacquers with curing times between each process. This is done on all wood surfaces inside and out. Custom built to order, you can choose any size with any image or design. All of our custom lighting fixtures, including lamps, sconces, and chandeliers are wired to exceed all electrical code and safety requirements worldwide.

Nick travels the world observing and studying historic architecture in search of inspiration for his designs. By visiting ancient castles, and seeing the art and architecture up close and personal, it allows him to be able to build modern, historically inspired pieces using the same craft and materials as the original.
