Crafts,

Tell us about your business.

Acorn + 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.

What makes your business stand out?

We create something beautiful out of what would otherwise be discarded or burned.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Design for yourself, not for the trends.
