Nesting instincts

Three hours at the bead table with cups of hot steaming coffee, good music and rains keeping company- here is what the Sunday had me doing.  

Grey-brown eggs in a silver nest

The bird that makes a golden nest lays green eggs :D

I can't decide whether I like the messy bird nest that I had made earlier better or the ones above. What about you?

By the way, these were made without using pliers with the exception of just cutters to snip the wire in the end. Rest of it is genuinely 'handmade' in the real sense of the word. Or hand twisted so to say. Yes, I've g sore fingertips that hurt a little as I type :( But next time I shall hopefully not complain about them and show them off proudly like a hard working skilled craftsmen. :) 

There is something about a bird nest that looks cozy and warm. Don't you think? :) Just string it in a wire or any chain and use it as a pendant. Or lock it in your keychain clasp. Or just hang it up on a softboard at your study table. I think these will also make cute gifts for a baby shower.

I think I like the messy one a lot more :|
Maybe its because it looks a lot more natural and real :)
But thats just my opinion....all the pieces are fabulous, by the way :)

I think the messy one makes a better pendant, whereas the tidier one makes better earrings. In any case, do you know how much I am drooling over all of them?

@Unmana: Sure why not! I am in the process of making another one (I am keeping this one for me :D ), will let you know once it is listed.

@momofrs: Hehe. I too like the messy ones. They look more comfortable. Like my own house :D messy yet comf. :P

@Pallavi: Hmmm. That is a nice thought. But attaining that symmetry in making two separate nests is difficult. But earrings is a good idea. Thanks, will work on it.

@Kanchan: Thank you...Sure!! :)

Btw, in my comment list, I see Pallu cuddling a dog and Kanchan cuddling a goat. Cute pics both! :)

Actually, I already have a gold pendant with a green peridot, and this would be too similar. Unless you're making it bigger? If you have bigger beads of course!
