My take on Shirley McCutcheon's innovative birdnest charm....


Shirley made some gorgeous bird nest charms, and when I saw them on her blog i just had to have one. I asked Shirley for one, and she very generously sent one to me. This is the same bird nest she taught to Beth at Art and Soul, and the same one that Beth taught Nina Bagley, who posted it on her blog. I turned it into a pair of earrings. The ear wires are niobium, and the nest is brass.
