I was feeling kind of crafty the other day so I went through my list of things-to-make. Then, I remembered this great post at Just Something I Made. So, I went to Hobby Lobby, bought me some wire and beads, and got to it.
I started by stringing three beads. It took me forever to find beads that I liked for this project, but then I stumbled upon these little guys that almost look like blue bird eggs.
Then, I just twisted and turned and wrapped and weaved until it started to look like something round.
With my handy dandy round-tip pliers I added some kinks and loops and tried to make it look a little less wire-y. I personally like silver over gold, but with this silver wire, I'm not sure it will ever look less wire-y. I'm going to make another trip to Hobby Lobby this week and pick up bronze wire or something that looks a bit more natural.
Ta-da! A wire bird's nest. I love it. Like I said, I'm going to try again and go for a more twig-colored wire, but this little guy is getting put on a chain and will be a great necklace.
