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 blue 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 oak tree lovers.
