The acorn

The acorn

“Collect the acorns, memories of your life and add them to your tree; These beautifully simple acorns not only look fab on and necklace and bracelet but will also give a lovely autumn feel to your bronze tree sculpture. The also perfectly represent the birth of something new in your life or of new family members, keep the dearness of your loved ones close, watch your tree bloom.”

If you are lucky enough to have the tree sculpture, find your family tree in its physical form, made eternal yet ever changing. Add an acorn, a symbol of a new family member, and watch your tree grow with your family.

You don’t need the tree sculpture to enjoy these acorns, wear them as beautiful nature loving single pendant on a necklace, as part of a larger branch of leaves spanning a bigger design you have imagined on a necklace or bracelet, representing your own personal aesthetic or family and friends.

Each acorn and charm is movable, allowing you to customise the jewellery you create and the sculpture you design.

Create show stopping, mystical necklaces with a myriad of leaves, studded with stars, or be beautifully understated with a bracelet, holding a single acorn, a symbol of your own strength, your own ability to blossom and become something magnificent.

    Autumnal

    Autumn is my favourite season, the colours of the leaves, crisp mornings, the freshness of the air, bonfires, Halloween and bonfire night! This acorn charm optimises that sense of autumn and all it entails. Incredible workmanship, a heirloom piece x

    Seeds of life…

    During the Norman Conquest, the English carried dried acorns to protect themselves from the brutalities of the day. Considered to be an emblem of luck, prosperity, youthfulness and power, the Acorn is a good luck symbol indeed! It also represents spiritual growth.<3 How lovely to wear as a symbol of protection and luck. πŸ™‚

    A beautiful and meaningful piece.

    This is a lovely little charm, with a nice sense of chunkiness to it (much like the acorn itself). I particularly like the traces of its former life as a coin, on the back of the charm. Along with the oak leaf (which I bought a few years ago) this acorn is a meaningful symbol for me of the work I produce in my own life.
