Eight Acorns is nature-inspired terrarium jewelry and home decor items, featuring preserved botanicals and herbarium collected from all around the world. All pieces are meticulously created solely from my home studio, currently based in Sharon, MA.****

Hello and welcome to my natural corner, where you can take time to "smell the flowers". Flower giving has such a long history of traditional symbolism. Whether it's for showing emotions, celebrating memorable events, mark passion, sympathize grief, show an interest, or just to plain say 'I love you' - it's obvious, that flowers make us happy! It's indeed hard not to smile when you are presented with a bouquet of something so vibrant and full of life. Giving flowers, means creating an intimate connection with somebody, making them feel incredibly special and beautiful. And that's exactly what I want my work to be about - making people feel loved and capturing this feeling in the little glass ball to carry with you everyday.
All flora that I use in my work undergoes a special preservation process, then gets encased in the highest quality jewelry-grade acrylic, followed by sanding and polishing each piece by hand. It's a long labor-intense process that can take up to two weeks from the very beginning, but it ensures flowers keep their fragile beauty for a lifetime. I have many years of experience in resin casting and creating truly quality pieces and my own design is something I'm very passionate about!  The use of earthy natural materials help me to create unique pieces perfect for the modern, bohemian girl.

About EightAcorns

Sales 6,883
On Etsy since 2010

Nature inspired

I got obsessed with resin back in 2008 when I introduced myself to a jewelry making through the internet community. I worked mainly with polymer clay and hard acrylics but my absolutely favorite medium was this sticky messy resin, that made my pieces look like clear shiny glass. I loved it so much, that my focus shifted mainly in to that direction. After opening my Etsy store this also became a part-time occupation that allowed me to support this hobby and master new skills. I tried casting different things into the resin and once I tried to preserve dried leaves this way. Botanical pressing was something I did for fun and pleasure. I liked sandwiching flowers and leaves into the heavy books and in the couple of years I had huge collection. They all ended up in keepsake albums, framed on the walls and all over the house. This time I also started wearing them as necklaces and this is how my botanical resin jewelry begun. Next summer I experimented with flowers, dandelions, moss and lichens. My work became all about the art of nature, or rather art of preserving it.

I try to diversify my collection by adding new seasonal specimens each year. In fact, every time I'm going for a nature walk or ride the bike my eyes excitingly scan around for the little treasures. I especially love doing it in the Fall, when there are acorns, pine cones, tree bark and rustling leaves beneath the feet. My work is mostly made to order and is now produced in the little home-studio based in Sharon, MA. I personally grow many of the botanicals I use right in the backyard garden or forage them from the local woods. In 2014 I renamed my store Eight Acorns after my most popular little amber acorn necklace.

I absolutely love retaining the fragile natural art, just like Mother nature creates her amber with trapped ants inside. Nothing is eternal, but this is a way to prolong brief natural beauty.

This is absolutely a soul satisfying work for me and I feel fortunate to share it with people all around the world.

Not at all! Each pair weights only 3 grams. Resin may look like glass, but it's psychically closer to plastic, so earrings ave very lightweight on the ears.
