My Story...

A few years after earning my BFA at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, I was working a desk job and making art on the side. As my art started to gain momentum, I was able to transition away from my desk job and now I can say that I have been a full time artist/designer for 5 years!

My company, Made by Cassandra Smith, all started with an idea I had one day to paint geometric, modern designs onto shed deer antlers. I gravitated to the shed antlers because I love the quirks and beauty of items from nature, and because they are 100% humane (deer shed their antlers naturally every year). The reaction I got was phenomenal! My antlers started appearing on blogs all over the world, and eventually I ended up being featured by Better Homes & Gardens, US Weekly, Design Sponge, Anthropologie, Harper's Bazaar, Bergdorf Goodman and more.

Since then I have started expanding my product line and am now hand-painting my designs on a variety of objects. Everyday I am coming up with new ideas and I can only see my business growing from here!

Returns and exchanges
If your item arrives and it is not as you expected, please contact me. I am open to accepting returns if you are unsatisfied with your purchase. I will also accept returns or do a touch-up if any paint is chipped when you receive an item.
I always try to ship items using USPS Priority shipping. If your item is particularly large or heavy I might have to use Parcel Post. If you need any item by a certain date please let me know right away so I can make sure to ship it on time.

NOTE: For international customers purchasing antlers please allow extra time for shipping. All antlers need to go through the U.S. Wildlife Department for inspection prior to leaving the United States. This generally adds an extra 7 - 14 days to the total shipping time. Contact me if you have questions about this.
