Oak and Acorn Necklace

Pin It

I don't get to make jewelry as often as I would like but sure had fun with this project!  As you might remember I started with a Graphics Fairy image of the oak leaf cluster and this oval bezel. I prepared that and let it dry. ( You can see all of that HERE)

Then life got in the way for a few days but bit my bit I began to ensemble the  leaf and acorn clusters that I envisioned on the chain. This was made all the slower by the fact that no matter where I looked I did not have any small silver jump rings ( note to self- buy some!)  So after doing all the headpin work I ended up making all the jump rings  since it was late at night ( oh for a 24 hour craft store!)

After that things were pretty darn quick and I added the jump rings ladened with the little bronze beads that I thought looked a bit like acorns and the dark pressed glass leaves and tada I was done... well just about. I need to solder all the connections for a long lasting finish but otherwise I am very happy to have this ready to wear on Thanksgiving!

Of course.. now I am thinking about something for the winter holidays...
