This is a cute little necklace that would make a great gift for your mother or grandmother on Mother’s Day, which is coming up very soon! It’s very easy and inexpensive to make!
You will need:
-3 Beads, colors of your choice
-Wire, color of your choice
Thread your beads onto one end of your wire, making a small loop at the end to keep the beads from falling off.
Loop your beads around each other, kind of tying them in a knot.
Twist your wire all around the beads about five or six times to make the “nest” shape. Cut your wire, leaving about 5 extra inches extended from the nest.
Wrap the extra wire around the nest, looping it through and around the beads every now and then to secure them to the “nest” frame.
Use the last little bit of wire to loop the nest through your chain, and wrap the excess around the loop to secure it.
And you’ve got a necklace! If you wanted to give this to your mother as a gift, you could really personalize it by using beads or gems the color of her children’s birthstones.
If you make this necklace, I’d love to see pictures! Tweet them to me @CaitWithTheFace
