bird's nest necklace4:56:00 PM
So a few weeks ago, hostessblog shared pictures from this baby shower. I have to say: Most. Gorgeous. Party. Ever. There are so many wonderful little details, but this bird's nest necklace caught my eye. Precious Meshes created it for the mommy-to-be.
I decided to try and make one. Now, I've never crocheted wire before, and it turned out to be pretty difficult (very likely I don't know the technique). I ended up circling and twisting the wire around the messy crocheted base. I used blue pearls from a pair of broken earrings for the eggs. I thought they would look a little more robin egg-like. (I'd like to try with real freshwater pearls though- they look more like eggs.)
Mine doesn't look nearly as good as Precious Meshes', but I'm pleased. It looks so springy!
Have you ever seen a real nest with eggs in it? I remember when I was little being full of wonder at seeing the beauty of a little nest with some hatched robin eggshells. It represents a wonderful little miracle. Now I pick up the little hatched eggshells whenever I find them; they are such precious symbols of new life.
