From Reality To Silver - An Acorn's Story

An acorn from our Granddaddy Oak tree in our yard here in Louisiana. The ground is always covered with them every year. I used Craig Dabler's sandcasting kit to cast this one in sterling silver. I save all my scraps of silver from different projects and use them to cast things like this. So no metal goes to waste in my shop. Every bit is saved to use in casting new items. Recycling is Beautiful.

The acorn and branch were cleaned up with abrasive wheels on my Dremel and files. Then soldered together. I love the way it came together. This pendant is a bit heavy due to the acorn being solid.

 

This beautiful pendant is available in the online shop. Click here to see.
