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.
When I first met my husband he wore this wooden tree pendant all the time. When I inquired about it, he told me he had carved it by hand and had been wearing it for years.
He quit wearing it awhile back and I thought about it the other day, wondering where it was. I dug around and found it. I cast it in sterling silver for him. It weighs 26 grams. He loved it.
