Who doesn't love a bird nest?? These small nests work up so quickly and use up scrap wire and leftover beads. In this tutorial you will learn how to make these incredibly cute nests. I will show you a basic technique for creating an organic looking nest, then give you some ideas for variations. There is also a mini tutorial for creating your own bail by making a wire wrapped loop. Afterwards, I will describe each nest in this first photo, how it was created, what size wire was used, etc... I also include some examples of jewelry ideas using the nests as pendants. This tutorial is suitable for beginners.
