    Very clever nest idea. Fantastic wirework.

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love the little nest, it’s adorable! I’m currently waiting on some green kyanite beads to do a brass bird themed necklace, myself. I love seeing your work, it’s so inspiring!

    Perfect for spring and Easter, I’ve been working on the bird nests myself, a little bit bigger to decorate the Easter table :D

    Thanks for your kind words, everyone! Looks like I’m not the only one with Spring Fever…if you’re interested in how to make a bird nest, there are several good tutorials on line. Just google “bird nest jewelry tutorial”.

    This is marvelous. I see you have a web site but didn’t see prices nor how to purchase them. I looked for FreshBaked on etsy and found nothing there.

    This is a little “out of season” but here’s a quick tutorial on making wire wrapped birds’ nests I did a while back… http://www.limabeads.com/store.....gn?d=10745

    Love the birdie sitting on her nest! Spring can’t get here soon enough!!

    Thanks, Ali, for the resource for the bird nest. Of course, I should have known you’d have a great one.

    And Granny, at this point I do not have an on line store, only in stores in my area. However, if you contact me through email, I’m happy to let you know prices and purchasing info. lyndacarson@cox.net
