" 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 ..
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 .
