One of my top 6 priorities for 2013, is to work on my ministry to others. I have scheduled time each week to spend focusing on my relationships with my friends. This week during my friend time, I made these simple Bird's Nest Necklaces. I was given one from a friend and I love mine. I have several friends that are expecting or just had a baby and I thought they would make great gifts.
- Needle nose Pliers
- Wire Cutter
- 24 Gauge Wire
- Jump Rings
- Lobster Clasps 10 MM
- Glass Pearl Beads 6MM
Arrange beads on wire with just a bit of wire left at the end. You can use as many beads as you like in this step. (Sorry for the blurry picture, I was multi-tasking and holding my 6 month old)
Wrap wire around beads until you have your desired width.
Leave about 6 inches of wire at end and cut with wire cutters.
Wrap wire between each bead and around all wires 2-3 times. During this process attach a jump ring or make a ring out of the wire. Cut wire and tuck end into back of nest.
Place chain through jump ring and attach clasp at one end of chain using a jump ring. Attach another jump ring to the other side of the chain.
