Acorn Pendant available in silver, brass or copper.
This Acorn Pendant is a stunning eco jewellery piece, made from recycled glass and metal.
I’ve selected 5 gorgeous colours for this collection. They work beautifully and look stunning with the metals used. The beads are cultured sea glass. They are made from recycled glass that’s processed to create a smooth, frosted finish. This pendant is a lovely light green.
I handcraft the other elements of each Acorn Pendant. The caps are individually hand cut from recycled sheet metal with a fine jewellers saw. I texture the metal and the cut out circles are domed to the fit the curve and shape of the beads. The metals are oxidised and polished back to reveal the texture.
The beads and caps are held in place by a handcrafted bail which I fashion from a silver strip of EcoSilver wire. I use a high heat to ball one end of the wire and once the pendant elements are threaded in place, this is twisted to form a tight spiral.
Available in 3 chain lengths: 40cm | 50cm | 76cm
