Couch-Bound Crafts: Wire Bird Nest Pendant

So my time healing up on the couch is making me a little stir-crazy. Managed to bring a few supplies and sit with the sleepy miss for a while, and I finally tried a project I have been meaning to for a while: the wire bird nest pendant. I love it, turns out they’re fairly easy – even on pain meds. ;)

I just used some 24-gauge silver-plated wire and some glass pearls (since that’s what I had) and with a little help from my jewelry pliers and wirecutters, I had myself a nice little pendant in about 15 minutes.

Yes, that would be said pain meds in the background. :P Getting operated on is so inconvenient, lol! And blogging from my phone really isn’t the same, either. Can’t wait til I’m better!! I link to these fabulous parties!

    How precious! Being on the couch apparently allows for other projects in your life! GET WELL SOON! :)

    I love all things bird and this is beautiful. I'm sure it's a blessing just to be able to craft while healing. Why does laying on the couch doing nothing sound so glamorous when we're busy but is totally tiring when not?

    This turned out really well, love the little nest. I make Jewelry but haven't done much wire wrapping. I may have to try this one…it's so cute. I have glass pearls too and love them.
    Hope you are better soon.
    Take care!

    Popped over from Tater Tots and Jello…. That turned out so cute! I have been doing some couch bound crafting myself. I made a ton of clothespin magnets because they were easy to make while sitting on the couch! I hope you recover and get off the couch quickly!

    Aren't these fun? I made one for myself a while back, then my daughter had to have one, my mother in law, a girl friend, the girl friend's boss, my daughter's friend… I'm warning you, you better not ever wear it outside your house!
    Get better soon!!!

    Your's turned out great! I like that you made your own ring to hook to a chain rather than a jump ring. I've made some of these and they are so easy, but I did the jump ring. Looks Great!!
