Casting Silver Acorns

I was walking the dogs and found the cutest little acorns and thought I had to make something with them! 20130906_103638As I have never cast anything and have been collecting my scrap silver, I thought I would cast them! I made tiny silver acorns and have a You Tube link below showing the whole casting process I used.


After casting these sweet acorns I thought they would look lovely as a pendant, unfortunately you can’t cast acorns on a twig with this basic casting method, so I made a twig using wire and milled and filed it to look similar to a twig.

See my final pendant below:

    I just learned of sand casting and found this as I searched far and wide for information to devour, lol. Those acorns are absolutely adorable and the pendant is just beautiful!! I am so excited to get my supplies and start casting. Did you use fine silver or sterling?
