These cute bird’s nest charms are just perfect for spring! I created mine as pendants, but they could just as easily be turned into keychains or just decorative charms for an Easter basket or centerpiece. I think these necklaces would also make a sweet gift for a baby shower. You could use plain pearls for a more classic look, or choose the mother-to-be’s favorite color.

  1. Image or video 
    Gather your materials. You can use all the same color bead, or mix it up!
  2. Image or video 
    Cut the jewelry wire about 30 inches in length.
  3. Image or video 
    String 3 beads on the wire. Make a notch at the end of the wire and begin bending the wire so that the beads gather in the middle of your nest.
  4. Image or video 
    Bend and turn the wire to create a nest shape. At every turn, weave the end of the wire it in and out so every loop of the nest is secure.
  5. Image or video 
    It doesn't matter which way you bend the wire because the messier it is the more “nest-like” it looks. Keep going until you’re happy with how your nest looks.
  6. Image or video 
    To create a loop for the necklace chain, cut a 3 inch piece of wire. Using your pliers, attach one end to the nest, form a loop and twist it until it is secure.
  7. Image or video 
    Cut your chain to the desired length. I like long necklaces so I cut my chain about 20 inches long. Add a jump ring to each end of the chain followed by a spring ring to complete your clasp.

    Your necklace is complete!
