Bird's Nests




I was talking to Pat Winter about the bird's nests as I wanted to make some. I decided I would make a pin out of it rather than a ribbon for wearing around the neck..


This is my first and as you can see I need a bit more practice..... I also think I need a heavier wire.... but gosh they are really fun..

Oh this is fantastic!!! This is your first attempt? It's fabulous! I want to try these but I'm not too sure how to do them, guess I'll have to find my wire and see what I come up with...

I love your little wire and bead bird nest pin!And the little charms dangling add a lot; I tried my hand at making one and they're trickier than you think, huh?!You've already got the hang of it, though....
beautiful!
