showcased some lovely examples of 30s bakelite and celluloid jewelry with an oak and acorn theme in one of her beautiful moodboards, I have been unable to get them out of mind, so thought I would repost my favourite examples here (I also included an amazing image of acorns "in the raw," originally from Sally Jane Vintage's blog
). I think acorns are the cutest things going and these vintage lovelies take the humble little nuts and make them something even cuter! Sometimes I still have dreams of trying to make some little baubles out of actual acorns. I blame Martha Stewart. Ever since I accidentally saw her make an acorn into a little lidded locket, I have had these nutty crafting ideas. har.
ha ha, i was planning to do a post exclusively dedicated to these, as i've got quite a few examples
Oh darling! Sorry to accidentally snipe your nut post topic! You should still do it!!!
I love that bracelet! Many years ago I made a necklace out of acorns, but let's just say it didn't have a very long shelf life. LOL
I've been eyeing this Danecraft acorn necklace for a while. It really is perfect for fall.
Oooh... how pretty!
I have a wooden brooch with acorns hanging off of it. I always forget to wear jewelry. I'll have to add it to my go-everywhere jacket to get me in the fall mood. Thanks for the inspiration, gals :)
AHHH! Love too much! I also love acorn prints, though that's a bit unrelated.
no worries, there's plenty of room out there for nutty posts :)
It was pretty common in the Mzke do and Mend era for ladies to make jewellery from real acorns, I say go for it! I'll be trying it this year for sure!
I too love acorns and had a recent dream that I was "little acorn girl" -- meaning that I was an acorn girl, quite literally. They ARE positively adorable, and I wish I could figure out what exactly this dream meant.
Gorgeous baubles, J...
I miss seeing you around my blog...
This post really inspired me! I've posted a tutorial on how to make your own acorn earrings on my blog if you are interested :)
I loved that leaf brooch, and then I saw the acorn bracelet and it was love at first sight, sigh...
