All size acorns are available well in time for the Thanksgiving Winter season, some special orders can be fulfilled within 5-10 days of order placement (large quantity orders of 12+ can be collected or shipped within 5 working days, small orders will be grouped with other orders and may take 10 days to be ready for shipping or collection). Prices for all acorns currently range from $45- $185
(Limited acorns are available for $35. These are seconds, which are still tactile, beautiful and daydream invoking but may contain a small defect, which can be that the size doesn’t match it’s brothers and sisters or that it’s cap sits a little differently or it may have caught an unintended dent. Still a beautiful heirloom piece with a character all of it’s own)
Watching the entire process of Jason creating a single seed takes a good 30 – 45 minutes. Many steps are involved in the making of each individual seed. Good timing and control of the glass is essential. ..
