This stunning pendant was on display at the Curated by the Sea Gallery on Front Street in downtown Santa Cruz. It sold while on display.

I had been creating jewelry from real acorn caps and wanted to see how the full acorn would look, so I made one in a mold. I pressed the moist clay sheet into the mold and cut out two halves of the acorn. I let the two halves dry. I refined them so I could put the two pieces together. I then joined them together using silver syringe clay in a strip all around. This was delicate work, to produce a seamless looking acorn. After drying the acorn, I created a hole at the top and bottom so when placed in the kiln the hollow form would not explode.

I am really happy with the result.

I added a dangle of lapis with silver balls. This was after burnishing the acorn cap with 24K Gold Foil, a process called Keum Boo.

It is very decorative and pleasing, particularly to tree lovers.

Dimensions : 1 and 1/2 inches X 3/4 inches X 1/2 inch. Sterling silver snake chain 16 inches.

PLEASE NOTE : This pendant sold in the Gallery. However if you wish me to make you a custom piece do let me know. It will not be identical since I make everything from scratch but it will be similar.
