This Bur Oak acorn is probably the most intricate hollow form I have ever fabricated. Techniques included fusing, carving, and soldering about 100 pieces of sterling silver wire into the stake-formed cup.

The Bur Oak is often referred to as the "most majestic" of the oak trees native to North America. The acorns have a fringed, mossy scale around the rim of their caps, hence the common name mossy-cup oak.

The hollow form pod is 2" round. The leather cord and hand made silver chain measures 19-24", designed to be adjustable.

This piece is one of a kind.
