NECKLACES





STERLING SILVER ACORN NECKLACE with TIGERSEYE.......$32.00

A solid sterling silver acorn is the centerpiece of this
unusual necklace. We cast from actual acorns using the
lost wax casting process. The necklace is 20” long and
features genuine tigerseye accent beads. The tiny glass
seed beads are a matte black color. A sterling silver
spring ring finishes the necklace.
This item comes gift boxed.

For millennia the acorn has symbolized the potential for
great power in a small but potent package. It is a symbol
of patience and the fruition of long, hard labor.
English Proverb: “Great oaks from little acorns grow”
...urges one to wait for maturation of a project or idea.
It is also a symbol for fertility, immortality, and survival
because the seeds of the “mighty oak” are acorns. Oaks can
live a 100 years and are considered strong and stable.
The oak tree was the mythical home of the god of thunder so
the acorn was a charm against lightening. The ancients thought
the oak to be the only tree that could consistently survive
being hit by lightening. In a German folk tale a farmer tries
to outwit Satin, to whom he has promised his soul by asking
for a reprieve until his first crop is harvested...he plants
acorns and has many years to enjoy first!. In Britain,
there is an old tradition for women to carry an acorn on her
person to delay aging and keep her young forever! Our sterling
silver acorns are cast from actual shingle oak acorns and are
a solid reproduction. Shingle oaks are a useful tree. Early
American pioneers split this oak for shingles for the roofs
of their houses.
