A New Nest


About this design:

I wanted another way to use one of the "nest" pendants we Chicks made. I loved using the copper wire to make the nests. I found a nice copper bracelet, just begging for pretty charms. I added the nest, and then a few companion charms and crystals. This one is for me!

Components:

Heavy copper charm bracelet, copper nest with glass-pearl eggs, assorted copper tone charms from our LBS, Czech glass beads, magnetic clasp, copper guard chain, copper findings.

    Harriet, this is just beautiful!!! I love the addition of the bird and feather charms to your bracelet — they tie in perfectly with your lovely nest! :D

    Thank you, Sandra. I still have 2 finished nests left and no idea what I will do with them. For a while, making those was a little like eating popcorn…just one more, and one more… LOL

    Harriet, what an adorable charm bracelet! Love that bright copper. Your nest is perfect! I’ve tried 2 nests now, and both of them looked like my eggs were on top of the nest – sigh! Guess I’ll have to try again.

    I love Cookie’s idea of making earrings with your 2 spares!

    The nests are a lot of fun to make, altho’ my fingers got tired. LOL
    I thought about making nest earrings, but they are not really the same. I just can’t take as clear a picture as I would like. The copper creates a glare, no matter lighting I use.
    Me and my camera..a most uneasy alliance. ;)
