Great things may come from small beginnings and this hand sculpted acorn pendant with its red cord will certainly make a statement. It is just what you need to add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit whatever the occasion.
Nature is all around us this summer in the fashion world and you'll see nature inspired prints in fabrics everywhere this season. This acorn necklace will fit right in.
I used the lost wax method for this pendant. This method is also called lost wax casting. In this process, a wax mold is used to create a piece of jewelry. The wax mold, called a pattern, is first weighed so the amount of metal required to fill the mold can be determined. Then the mold is attached to the base and a flask is slipped over the base. Once the mold is in the flask, a kind of plaster that looks like pancake batter called investment, is mixed up and put in a vacuum to get all the air bubbles out. It is then poured into the flask. Then it must be left to dry and harden. The whole process takes a minimum of 2 hours. Once the investment is dry, the base and flask are removed. The piece is then put into an oven to burn out the wax. Next, a centrifuge is used to force the melted metal into the investment mold. Finally, the piece is cleaned up by filing and polishing it.
The acorn pendant sterling silver has been lightly oxidised and is hanging from red cotton cord to really create a dramatic contrast. This pendant has been cast from a real acorn. You can see all the natural textures just like the real thing which looks really amazing.
This pendant will be made to order so please allow 4 days after your payment.

Acorn size:1.2cm (0.47 inch) Pendant length: 25cms (9.84 inch)
