An adorable creation that brings out spring!
I saw a necklace once that was kind of like the one shown but it was waaaay expensive so I did my own version. Good luck! :D

  • How to make a bird nest pendant. Egg Nest Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Create a "nest" out of some fairly flexible metal wire-- this can be very random just make sure that it is oval shaped and looks like you pressed your thumb into the front of it.

    Step 2

    Next, put your chain through;

    Find a length that is just right for you, cut your chain and loop it through the top of you "nest"

    You can use a jump ring for this if you want, however it is not really necessary and looks better without it.

    Now attach your jump rings and lobster clasp (I needed 2 jump rings to attach a clasp) to one end of you chain and the other jump ring to the opposite side.

    Thirdly glue on your "eggs" (pearls) to the "nest" that you made using either a strong glue or a rubber cement in small amounts.
    Leave to set over night and flaunt in the morning! ;p

I loved this so much that I made one for myself! My parents couldn't tell what it was, but three year olds could, so I count it as a success! Super cute, thanks for the how to!

That is too cute!!
I think to make sure that the beads don't fall out, the first step could be to thread them onto the wire. Just a tip :)
