Acorn Brooch(es) for my Etsy Shop
Back side, the back is just as important as all other angles, imo...Artists I hope you are signing your works! :-)
Just in time for Fall...my daughter has been gathering acorns and leaves and placing them around striking red candles we have. I love the simple act of her finding beauty in the fallen acorns, the variations of colors and sizes. She saw a squirrel stuff more than one in his mouth and run off, and noted they were green.
Leave it to nature to inspire, and someone close to us to carry that inspiration in near enough to move an artist to create.
This is the first of many. Some will have leaves attached, others will be conjoined, just like in nature. I'm already imagining that fat squirrel with a full cheek and part of the acorn sticking out.
Hope you like this. It was fun to make!
