Just in Time for Fall Gathering - Acorns!
A family member suggested I give acorn making a try. I'd seen pictures of this done before - a real acorn cap used on top of a bead - so here's my take on the whole thing. I had to go back outside and gather a whooooooole lot more of those acorn caps to accommodate some of the beads made, but I think the whole thing ended up working pretty well. Originally I thought of Christmas tree ornaments, or maybe just a novelty piece, but these could pass as pendants too I think. Not sure how sturdy those natural caps are, but they held up really well drilling a hole in them. Guess I'll just have to wear one for a few weeks to check them out. Hope they're received well at the Fall shows! Thanks for spurring me on to do these Gretchen!
For purchases, call 704.641.3656 - or email me at email@example.com :: If you're in the area and would like to see what I have in stock, you're welcome to give me a call and schedule a visit to my home studio. That is, as long as you remember that I make beads, I don't really do much housework! The way I look at it, dust is just a protective covering.
