Bird Nest Jewelry

 
Bird Nest Jewelry - Purchase Here

I love weaving silver wire into tiny bird's nests filled with tiny blue eggs...it makes me happy.  Simple pleasures, right?  There's just something peaceful about sitting quietly weaving the silver wire in - through - and out that feels so right.  Everything drifts away as my fingers coax the wire into the shape of a tiny nest.

I guess you could call me a "bird girl" as I love feeding and watching the birds that visit the feeders all Winter.  I also gather up all the nests that fall from the trees after a storm in the Summer and have them under glass cloches in my house.  I think they are beautiful and amazing.

So many flights back and forth gathering pieces of grass to weave into their nest preparing for the eggs that will soon be protected there.  Isn't that amazing?  

So, I will continue to weave silver wire into the shape of tiny nests to wear around someone's neck giving them pleasure each time they fell it against their heart.

Stay warm and blessed my friends - xo Julie

I love your birds nests, they are so cute and sweet. I agree that there are something special about birds nests, they are small miracles as also birds eggs are!

I hope you're having a wonderful day, we (Mollie and me) are freezing because since yesterday it has become really cold here! I am so tired of winter and snow...

Many hugs to you!
