Flying the Nest - Nest Bracelet Tutorial

Flying the Nest - Nest Bracelet Tutorial

Created by: Kayla Hefling

Designer Tips

  • Create the bird nests. For step by step instructions with images, see the How To Make A Wire Bird Nest blog post.
  • Use 22-26 gauge wire depending on the hole size of the beads you choose for the "bird eggs".
  • This style of wire-wrapped birds nest "baskets" work great for bracelets, earrings and pendants, because they donít have a closed-off back. You can see the bird eggs from both sides of the charm.
  • Use jump rings to connect bird charms and nests to chain segments.
  • To close the bracelet, connect the lobster clasp to one of the links on the chain. This allows the bracelet to fit multiple wrist sizes.
