For this acorn I started with a seven sheets of silver. I soldered and sawed six sheets, then hammered them into little cups. I then soldered the two cups together to create a hollow form. With sterling silver a hollow form can literally explode if there is any moisture left inside as it is heated, so it’s essential to have a pinhole. When the moisture evaporates (as it is heated) it is possible to solder the hole shut, which I did with a small piece of wire to create the acorn tip.
One of a kind. This acorn hangs on a leather cord, 25-28", adjustable.
The length of the leather cord with handmade chain at one end is 17-20".
