" Autumn Acorn " - necklace
We turned our clocks back this weekend -
so autumn is officially here . So to celebrate
it - i created a necklace .
I`ve wanted a large real acorn for months , but
i have not managed to find one - so i decided to
make myself one - out of fimo .
Acorn size 1.5 " - painted and sealed - and the nut
part has gloss on it . The leaf is from a copper brooch -
a hammered effect and to get the pin off - i soaked it in boiled water
- and it just came off ;o) Then i cleaned it and drilled a hole
in the top .

Photo - done with the flash and is clickable ..






The loop on the acorn is from a metal screw
eye that i carefully screwed in before i baked it.
The oven temperature is so low - it didn`t melt the metal ;o)


Then strung them both onto a piece of
faux suede thong .

You never cease to amaze me girl, you made your own acorn and gorgeous it is too. I think the copper leaf is just perfect with it :)

Our clocks change next weekend, and I am dreading it, don't like such short daylight hours, but I will get used to it like I always do :)
