bird's nest necklace

DIY bird's nest necklace

So I've been seeing these bird's nest necklaces around Pinterest and other blogs, so I decided to make my own. I'll also include a tutorial along with this. 

What you'll need:
  • beads
  • wire - I used 24 gauge
  • jump rings
  • a clasp
  • a necklace chain
  • pliers

Start by wiring your bead and arrange them however you like. I chose to do three, but you could do up to four but as few as one.

Next, just begin wrapping your wire around the beads until you have built up your 'nest' to how much you want. 

I wrapped my wire between each bead just to keep the wire in place because it started getting a little crazy. It's almost done!

Lastly, just attach your clasp and jump ring to the ends of your chain. If you want to add one to your nest, you can but I just made a loop out of the extra wire that was on the end of it.

And we're done!
