The Little Acorn Gold
This little acorn is a reminder that we all start out small but are full of the potential of the strong and enduring oak. A symbol of wisdom, growth and strength.
I found a tiny acorn at The University of Limerick after a storm, cast it in silver and added a layer of 18ct hard gold plating.

Please note that solid gold pieces may take extra time to create.
How to care for your Jewellery
Your Andrea Mears jewellery is made from a variety of metal alloys and plated finishes, as well as genuine Swarovski crystals and semi precious stones.
Owing to the nature of the materials and how its made, your antique finished pieces will all look slightly different and unique.
Remove your jewellery before engaging in activities where it could get accidentally damaged such as exercising or swimming.
Do not get your jewellery wet or expose it to household chemicals, makeup, creams, hairspray or perfume as they will damage the plating and cause tarnishing and discolouration. Put your jewellery on last after applying these.
Wipe your jewellery with a soft clean cloth after wearing and always store in its original box to protect from damage and discolouration caused by the environment or sweat.
Handle with care. Due to the delicate nature of some of the materials, stones and crystals used, jewellery can be easily damaged by dropping on a hard surface.
