“My Newest Nest”

  

Description from Southern Chick: I just finished making my third nest necklace. I WAS NOT going to sell it. We went to a dinner party this evening and it got bought right off my neck along with the earrings too. Oh well.
I can't see where to add my picture that I just took of it, though.

    Oooo, I Love this, Southern Chick! Love that peridot flat teardrop! I LUST after it! That just sounds so bad, doesn’t it?

  2. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Thanks Debra…Lust away! That’s not too bad, I guess.

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Could be worse, huh?

    Just realized I haven’t beaded ANY today. Think I’ll get off and bead a bit.

  4. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    This is really frustrating…I can’t find the pic that I just took of my necklace! I even saved it by name. Oh well. Have a great night…and Happy Mother’s Day

    great pick and lovely necklace…congrats on the sale! :)

    Southern Chick says:

    Thanks chickies…I don’t know how we’ll be able to find each other by wearing our nests, when I can’t keep them for more than a few hours! And gem chick…those peridot DON’T have holes! It was just lucky stabbing and jabbing! OMG! That’s why I wasn’t going to sell it! I wasn’t going to do that again!

    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    You go girl!!! Positively adorable necklace! Love the Peridot and the leaves are just perfect – they really pop against the copper!!! Outstanding!!! Think I’ll wear mine to church tomorrow and see what happens! Is that tacky? Oh well…. :)

  13. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    I see now the ‘leaves’ are Peridot teardrops…Gorgeous…

  14. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    jill, you can do it! its a little weird holding it together and wrapping the wire, but I’ve made and sold 3 this past week, and each one is easier and better…Just not the peridot slivers that had to be strung.

  15. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Thanks so much shannon!

    Southern Chick says:

    Jeanne,I’d love to see the set you make for your daughter’s prom…Will you post a picture, please? And Jill, I’m shocked that I’ve sold anything, but its been nice. I just started beading 3 weeks ago. I’m so glad that I found Limabeads…Y’all are great encouragers!

    Thanks for the tip, Jeanne and the compliments. Hi, funny chick…I hope that I have the right chick names for the right real chicks!

    Southern Chick – thanks for asking about Kelsey, much better, trying to get her to rest more, not easy but it is paying off :)

    Three weeks, are you sure??????? LOL The nest is beautiful!!

  27. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Thanks again. Yep, just 3 weeks. I have so much to learn about wire, gauges, beads etc. its scary! I have taken two classes and you all told me how to find the instructions for the nest necklace. I saw one a couple of weeks ago in Richmond, Va and I wanted to copy it. That’s where this whole nest necklace “thing” got started. Thanks to y’all!

  28. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Poor little Kelsey…keeping a little down is HARD to do! Even when you know they need to rest, they really fight it, don’t they?
    Well, Happy Mother’s Day! lol! I know she’s worth it and you’re a great mom.

    Southern Chick, your necklace is gorgeous! Love the peridot! What will you use for your next nest?

    Good night!

  33. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Debra, Thanks for the compliment. I’m going to make another one just like this one. Then, I’m going to make one of my daughters one out of sterling silver and amethyst beads. That is her birthstone. Actually, the wire isn’t sterling. Its sterling wrapped copper, I think.

    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    A very pretty , very green pick!
    Wow, what a cute nest necklace.
    You rock!

  35. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Thanks Harriet…Has anyone made another new updated and improved chick list…maybe one with some locations attached? I’ve gotten confused about where everybody lives. I know a few, but there are so many of us now….

  36. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Here’s an updated picture or me…instead of the Grand Canyon

  37. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Love the precious picture, Southern Chick! Thanks for inspiring me. I’m going to make one of those nests asap!

    Can’t wait to see the amethyst w. silver!

    Mary S - Sweet Chick says:

    Southern Chick, Your necklace is amazing!!
    You’ve only been doing this THREE WEEKS?!!
    I am so jealous! First because your work is phenomenal and second because so many people are buying them off your neck!!!
    More power to you chickie!!!!

  39. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Southern Chick, it is beautiful!!!!!!!!! I love it! I logged off last night before too much chat got started on this and before you posted your picture. WOW! You go, girl! and such a compliment to have it purchased right off of your neck! So happy for you! (I finally got my wire for the nest last night – the stuff I had was too fine, so while running to Michaels for something else, grabbed that! I’m anxious to make mine – more so now, after seeing your latest creation!)

    Adorable necklace, precious picture!
    Agree w/ Southern Chick about the list. Maybe we could put it on the private chick blog, and then I’ll say where I am. After all, West Texas is an area big enuf to be a state of its own! Uh=oh, tall Texan again, and I’m really only 5’4 1/2″. Happy Mother’s Day!

  42. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    What a beautiful necklace! And a beautiful pick! I am so impressed that you have only been doing this for 3 WEEKS? You have talent girl!

    I have tried 3 nests so far and am having trouble getting them to look like the eggs are recessed into the nest…I wish there were a step by step video for this! I am one of those people who totally gets it…AFTER you show me how!

    Can anyone give me suggestions? Thanks!
    How are you all getting the wire to look kinked or messy?

  43. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I’m SO with you Sparkle Chick! Seeing the process is the best way for me.
    All this in 3 weeks? Super woman!

  44. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Southern Chick! you have a new picture with your screen name. Is that you with your little girl?!!? Gorgeous! Happy Mothers Day!

    CAS says:

    Southern Chick! Wow, you rock Chicky, you really, really rock! 3 weeks!! You amaze me, I started beading, off and on, 2 years ago, and I haven’t sold anything yet! The necklace is stunning! I can’t wait to see what you do next. :)

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Beautiful nest necklace, Southern Chick! Add my voice to the congrats on the sales, too! Way to go!

    You really caught up on the learning curve, I must say. You’re a natural.

    I’ve made about 6 nests, and STILL can’t get the nice, fluid look you have. I’ve settled for a loopy, tangled look on mine. Wasted too much wire already. :P

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Love your nest! You know, I have peridot chips and they are drilled. However I’ve seen that you can get drilled or undrilled chips…maybe you got the undrilled!

  48. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    My goodness…I didn’t know that this many chicks had left comments about my nest. Thank you thank you over and over again! Y’all are wonderful! Pride went before the chickies fall, though. I haven’t been able to get the silver and amethyst nest to look right yet! I’ve remade it 3 times. The glass beads break or its just hard to hold onto. I don’t know what’s going on.

  49. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Now it really is time to finish my wine sip of wine and hit the bed. Love to all of you! Have a great day tomorrow. And I hope that Belly chick didn’t get too much snow! That’s rough!

    Love you nest necklace and the fresh pick. Into my favs.

  51. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Thank you 3KJewels…can I ask are you the 3Kchick from PE Island in Canada..It seems like there was a name change a couple of weeks ago and I didn’t follow it….

  52. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    OhBTW, I got a little order of lb beads today. The beads that I won from solving the little puzzle for the fresh pick’s b’day. I also go Botwana Agate…It is stunning! I also got the green Chrysoprase. Another winner. I don’t think they’ll go together, but I’ll figure something out. LOL

  53. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    I am 3KChick, yes, but I live in the beautiful province of New Brunswick, Canada. PE Island is a neighbouring province, a small island off the east coast of New Brunswick. A very beautiful place. A fantastic tourist area. Absolutely gorgeous beaches surround the island. There is a 13 kilometre bridge across the Northumberland Strait connecting the two provinces.

    Southern Chick says:

    Someday…I’ll be able to visit! My mother just loved it when she visited there in the early 90s. Well I’m glad that I remembered you! Talk to you soon. Love ya!

  55. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Thanks, Southern Chick. I think we had this conversation a while ago. If you look on the net you can find lots of info on the Confederation Bridge. It is a construction feat, believe me.
