BIRD NEST NECKLACES

RECENTLY I SAW INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING BIRD NEST JEWELRY USING WIRE AND BEADS. CAN'T REMEMBER WHERE, BUT I REMEMBERED HOW. AFTER MAKING A FEW PIECES, (AFTER ALL, IT IS SPRING AND THE BIRDS ARE MAKING THEM!), I GOT THE IDEA THAT MAYBE THEY WOULD LOOK A LITTLE ARTSIER IF I ADDED A LITTLE SOLDER HERE AND THERE. I LIKE THE LOOK. I FEEL IT IS A NICE VARIATION AS IT MAKES ME FEEL LESS LIKE I'M COPYING SOMEONE ELSE. (DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT SOME OF THE PICS ARE A LITTLE BLURRY. AN UNSTEADY HAND, PERHAPS!)

Great work Judy- you are so talented! I need to learn to control the solder-mine gets globby!

I'm enjoying a day in the 50's here by painting my bedroom- first I used an pil based primer/sealer over the old plaster and the fumes have sent me over the top! :)

Hope all is well at the shop. I am soooo into birds nests this year- bring one to Kane so me... :)
