Spring is in the Air!

The weather is dreary here in New York today, rainy and bleak.  No colors anywhere I look except for the lovely Cardinals in the yard and the occasional red cap on a Woodpecker.  Still, there is a feeling of expectation and quiet exhilaration (if there is such a thing) of the impending change of season.

Spring is in the air!  The birds know it. The trees know it,  and we sense it.   I suddenly have the urge to create more bird’s nests jewelry especially since I just recently sold the very first bird’s nest pin I ever made.

I’ve made other, similar brooches, pendants and necklaces featuring tiny bird’s nests, but this one had a special meaning for me.  It was called “A New Beginning” and it was perfect to me (not something I usually say about anything I make).

To make up for its’ absence,  I made a necklace with a bird’s nest pendant yesterday.  Strangely, it sold today.  I had been working on yet another necklace (with a bird’s nest, no less) when I decided to take a break to check my email.  Someone just bought the necklace I made yesterday along with a pair of Heart Leaf earrings.

I’ll be shipping this out tomorrow and completing the second necklace.  Guess what, I just got an email from someone asking about a bird’s nest pin!

    Thanks Dianna. This one will be part of a necklace I’ll probably finish tomorrow.

  3. Very nice. Love your bird nest pin and pendants, and I like how you did your necklace with the s-loops and the loops with the flowers on the front. Your work is always so beautiful.

      Thank you mixedkreations!!!! The center part of the necklace is one long section of wire that has been twisted into loops and spirals, then hammered. I made the copper flowers separately and attached them.

  4. I just love these little nests! And yes, Spring is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than finding homes for your nests! Congrats! ^_^

    Thanks Diane. Making these is addictive. I keep finding ways to make them easier and more realistic.
