Bird Nest Necklace and Earrings / Обици и колие "Птиче гнездо"

Time for another Pinning with Purpose post! The other day, I was working on a project that turned out a complete disaster. However, I managed to salvage several pieces of kinked thin wire - a good opportunity to make a bird nest pendant and here is the first ever tutorial I came across. I made two small dangles with hematite beads - just the right size for earrings.
Време е за поредната публикация от серията "Пинтерест в действие"! Наскоро започнах един проект, от който нищо не излезе, но успях да спася няколко парчета тънка тел - чудесна възможност да направя висулка "Птиче гнездо", а това е първото уроче, на което попаднах някога. Направих две малки висулки с хематит, тъкмо за обици. 

Then I made a pendant with larger beads. Still, something was missing, the set was too plain. Bead tassels! Yes! And three chains of different shape, size and color - black and silver - to add even more texture!
Направих още една висулка с по-големи мъниста. Но като че ли липсваше нещо, нещо по-така. Пискюл! От дребни мъниста! Да! Завърших с три синджира с различна големина на халките и цветове - черно и сребро.




You can tell by the number of pictures how exhilarated I feel about this set, right?
Сигурно се сещате от броя на снимките колко съм въодушевена от този си комплект, много хубав ми се получи, нали?

  1. I too save up kinked wire to make birds nests, the kinks make the nests look very real

    1. You are right about kinked wire, Divya! The small nests turned out better than the big one which I made of wire directly from the spool :)

  2. It is a lovely set and I am hitting my forehead with my hand and saying; "Why didn't I think of saving used kinked up wire for making those cute little birds nest ?" Sometimes the most obvious thing can be over looked. Thanks for a most useful post. :)

  3. These turned out so great! The bird nest charms are something I've been wanting to learn to do myself for AGES and have never actually sat down and learned to do. Yours turned out so beautifully that I'm definitely going to have to pin the tutorial you used for a later date. Oh, and the tassels and triple mixed metal chain really does add some ZING to the necklace. I would be exhilarated with these too. :)

    1. Thanks, Hope! It's not my first try but the first I actually liked and decided to use. Kinked wire makes better nests unless you like them very orderly :)
