What I've made with my acorns so far !

Sterling Silver Viking Knit bracelet with etched copper Oak leaf focal.
Acorn dangle is a glass lampwork bead that the "cap" of the acorn has been electroformed with copper.
Each component (Viking Knit, making the lampwork bead,  copper etching, electroforming) is a very time consuming process. I'm pleased as punch with the results.


My second attempt is a copper etched oak leaf connected with a fused fine silver chain, and the acorn dangle is a glass lampwork bead that has been electroformed to show off a copper "acorn cap"
The bracelet and leaf have been oxidized to give the silver and copper an aged look.
