One Acorn Necklace


About this design:

The acorn serves as a statement of strength, potential in life, and perseverance. This necklace is a really easy way to give someone something meaningful without having to express it with words.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • 18" finished sterling silver chain
  • 1 Grace lamp work glass acorn
  • a couple sterling silver slides

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
This is probably the easiest necklace I have made yet! String on your acorn, then holding both sides of the chain together, slip on the sterling silver "slides" (tube & o ring), dropping them down to the acorn. If you can't get your clasp on the chain through the "slides", remove the clasp using the same technique as opening and closing a jump ring. Then simply re-attach the clasp. That's it!

    Ali, this is a very pretty necklace. What a great design. I love how you used the silver chain (as opposed to say, brass); it seems to highlight a blue color I see in the acorn’s cap.
    Love the gift idea! Thank you :)

    I have the Eucalyptus acorn sitting on my table still waiting for a design to formalize… Maybe this is it! :) Love this! I have a friend who’s husband is a captain in the Navy and oak leaves (acorns, too??) symbolize an officer’s wife. I was looking for something to make for her for Christmas. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Saw your necklace yesterday and knew I had to have it, am ordering all the components today, my very first jewelry making challenge! If successful, I will make them for my two best friends. Thanks for including the symbolism of the acorn.

    This is wonderful. I’m going to give it a try but instead of the lampwork acorn I now have a use for all the big fat acorns from my 100 year old oak tree that I’ve collected. A little epoxy to the cap and wire the acorn and I should be good to go. Thanks for the inspiration.
