Bird's Nest Earrings

If you want to give your favorite chick (you?) a pair of earrings for Easter, follow these directions.

Materials:
24 gauge beading wire (Michael's)
6 oval pearls
earring posts or wires
E-6000 glue (for posts)

Tools:
small needle nose pliers

Cut one piece of wire 18" long.
Cut 5 pieces 5 " long.


Gather the shorter wires and wrap the longer wire 2 or 3 times around the middle of the bundle.
Spread the spines out like a spider. Since you need an odd number of spines, take one spine and weave it around the others. Tuck the end inside the nest using needles nose pliers if necessary.
Begin weaving over and under with the long wire. When you have a base about the size of a penny, bend the spines up and pull slightly while you weave to make a bowl shape.
When the nest looks about right ( or you run out of long wire) cut off the end of the long wire and tuck it into the inside of the nest. Then start weaving the spines around each other; one at a time. Wrap the end of the weaving spine around one of the upright ones and tuck inside. Take a spine opposite the last one and weave it. Repeat until you only have two spines left.
Thread 3 pearls onto the remaining spines. Twist them together near the pearls, but leave a little slack. Thread the wires through the bottom of the nest. Pull and arrange the pearls in a pleasing manner. Twist the wires and tread them back into the nest. Cut off the ends and tuck the wires out of sight.
Glue posts onto the backs with E-6000 glue or hang the nests from earring wires. Get ready for the Easter Parade.
