About UsAcorn + Archer is a Nashville-based accessories line inspired by natural specimens, ancient artifacts and the balance found in modern physics. With an emphasis on harmonious proportions, each design takes life as a sketch that is carefully translated into the appropriate medium by founder and designer Carolyn Burgess Sellers. Using primarily organic materials of wood, ceramics and leather Carolyn, along with her husband David, focus on reclaimed, recycled and sustainably sourced woods among other materials.
When not creating jewelry, Carolyn can be found bringing new life to old relics or rearranging furniture like a mad woman. David is most at home in the kitchen or working to restore his 1972 BMW.
Our Products+ Due to the nature of wood, no two pieces are exactly alike. Slight variances in color and grain pattern are to be expected and will vary slightly from the item depicted in our photographs.
++ We care about our planet :: It's important that we are all aware of our impact on the environment. We use reclaimed, repurposed, recycled and sustainably sourced materials as often as possible. The bulk of our wood supplies are salvaged from the cast offs of other regional wood artisans.
Care+ All of our products are minimally processed (cut, drilled, dried, sanded) and conditioned using food safe oils, making it safe for your skin. We do not use polyurethanes or harsh chemicals as a finishing agent. Our jewelry retains the natural, organic look of wood and will stay beautiful longer if not subjected to prolonged exposure to water. If you do wish to recondition your jewelry, we recommend natural finishers such as bee's wax and/or butcher block oil. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
For ceramics: All pieces are high-fired in an electric kiln and glazes are hand-mixed, designed to be beautiful, durable and easy to care for.
