Wire Nest CharmTutorial

April 6, 2011

Supplies Needed:
Wire (I used 20 gauge)
Beads
Round Nose Pliers Stand 3 beads at the end of wire and turn under the end to keep the beads on.
Start making the nest by wrapping around the "eggs" several times.
Thread end of wire up through nest.
Pull through and then continue wrapping around eggs and threading up through to make nest.
Once the nest is the size that you want pull through the last time to make a hanger. Bend wire around the round nose pliers.
Then wrap several times around the base of the hanger. Trim off excess wire and crimp end down.
I hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial on making these cute little nests.
Wishing you all a great day!

It's a beautiful little charm! But, you know, I'm not "mechanically inclined";)

Thanks SO much for posting this! I was *just* thinking this morning as I admired (for the millionth time) the bracelet you made for me, how I wanted to improve my own charm-making skills! :-)
