A bird’s nest is a structure built by birds to hold eggs and to raise its young. Usually composed of organic material such as twigs, grass, and leaves. Human-made materials, such as string, plastic, cloth, or paper are sometimes used as well. In general, the female bird does most or all of the nest construction.
Our bird’s nest however is made completely of little glass beads. A cup nest surrounded by leaves and berries rests atop a cuff blank completely encased in exquisitely woven beads. And in its centre, a beautiful lampwork bead sits in the nest.
A fun and quirky project that is bound to bring a smile to all who witness the bird’s nest.
