This acorn necklace is the perfect accessory for your fall wardrobe! The necklace comes in a black jewelry box with a sweet scripture card and an oak leaf gift tag; which makes it a great gift!
I introduced this little acorn necklace last year and it was a huge success! So, my intent was always to bring it back this fall! With the challenges this year, it’s been much harder to get things shipped. I was only able to get a limited supply of the acorn charms and jewelry findings needed to make these necklaces, so I only have 40 total this year!
The acorn is a symbol of strength. From one tiny acorn, a mighty oak grows. When I think of strength, this verse comes to mind: She is clothed in strength and dignity and laughs without fear of the future. Proverbs 31:25. The acorn is also a symbol of new life, so acorn pieces are often gifted to new or expectant mothers. Aside from the symbolism, I really love wearing nature inspired pieces.
I wanted this necklace to be affordable for everyone! So, I made this little necklace in brass, rather than sterling silver or gold. Each necklace is made by hand. Last year many of you requested a longer chain. So, this year I have the necklace in both 18 inches and 24 inches. The dainty brass chain links are all soldered and has a lobster claw clasp. The acorn charm is 19 mm x 12 mm. The version last year also had a tiny pinecone charm. I wasn’t able to get those pieces, so this year’s version has just the acorn charm. In all honesty, I removed the pinecone charm from my necklace last year and wore it with the acorn alone. I prefer the simplicity of just the acorn charm. Both the chain and charm have a slight oxidized finish that gives the necklace a vintage feel.
THE PERFECT FALL ACCESSORY
I’ve been wearing this necklace nonstop since the beginning of September. I wore it for a while because I wanted to make sure it didn’t tarnish before selling them. And, I’m pretty impressed! I haven’t noticed any tarnish, except a tiny bit on the lobster claw clasp. And, it’s just a small amount. Otherwise, the necklace looks the same after one month of daily wear. Now, I was careful not to get the necklace wet and keep it away from any perfume. And, I did take it off at night.
I also simplified the packaging this year by using a black jewelry box. And, instead of a separate card, I had the information for the acorn and scripture printed directly on the necklace card. The music printed oak leaf is now a gift tag that can be attached to the box for gifting. The box will be tied with gold twine, so it will be ready for gifting! I think this could be a sweet little gift for girlfriends, daughters, nieces, etc. Or, you could place one on each girl’s place setting at Thanksgiving table.
Now, for the most important part – how much does it cost? I’ve kept the price the same this year at $15 plus Priority Mail shipping. All the items I sell in my Etsy shop are handmade by me and help me with the expenses of my blog. So, I really appreciate every purchase!
