You already know my passion for bird nests, in jewelry that is. We’ve all seen them neat, dressed up, messy, with all kinds of “eggs” and obviously, I’ve made too many.
I’ve seen many I loved and many I didn’t like. My biggest peeve regarding birds nests are the excessively neat ones. While there may be birds out there with compulsively neat tendencies and disorders, I’ve yet to see them. For the most part, birds being the resourceful creatures they are, I tend to think they use whatever materials they find and create nests that are more functional than tidy.
With that in mind, I noticed that I hate to discard used bits of wire that have become twisted, misshapen, somewhat ugly, scraps. It suddenly occurred to me to use these for making yet another nest.
Soo..with twisted bits of wire of different gauges, I made this little nest. I have to admit, it feels good to have used up that mess of wires. Maybe next time I’ll combine different colors of wire as well, or scraps of other materials like bits of wood, pet hair, yarn, who knows!
