small silver oak leaf and green glass acorn necklace

Regular price £76.00
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. Well, I'm not promising you'll get all that with this necklace, but it will look lovely and maybe this oak leaf acorn cluster will become your own safe-keeper!

Sterling silver oak leaf with a unique leaf texture taken from a real skeleton leaf on a 45cm hallmarked silver oval belcher chain. The silver pendant is approx 1.3cm wide and 2.7cm long from top of bail to bottom of leaf. The leaf itself is approx 1.2cm x 2.1cm.

The beautiful glass bead acorn is approx 1.5 x 1.4cm and is made by a lampwork glass bead maker based in North Yorkshire.

The gemstones that gives it that little bit of sparkle are peridot along with a creamy pearl.

There is a larger version of this necklace available, some with different colour acorns. The last picture shows the relative acorn sizes used in these two necklaces.

The picture is representative of the necklace you will receive, but as the leaf textures are created from real skeleton leaves, each oak leaf will differ slightly. This makes each pendant unique
