We are back from a lovely, lovely week by the ocean. It was such a gift to spend some good time with the surf and with family too. I miss it so much already that I thought I would just jump right on back into this little space of mine and see if it helps me plant my feet a bit again. So...these are some acorn necklaces I have been working on for awhile now. Really, we had the most wonderful harvest of acorns this past fall. They were a delicious shiny brown and so perfectly formed. We filled our pockets on our daily forest walks and ended up with quite a collection! I drilled some holes in a few of them and strung them on thin cotton cording with glass and stone beads. Each has a bird shell bead flying above. I am really enjoying necklace making and can't stop thinking about all of the possibilities. It is so satisfying and fun to boot! I have made a few different kinds that you can see here and here. Oh, and make sure to see this darling necklace on one of my favorite blogs!
I do hope this finds you all well and staying cool for those of you who are melting away like us!
