pinned it, did it 9: bird's nest necklace

This one is for you, spring. 

I have to admit that I am not entirely thrilled with spring's seemingly early arrival. I am one of those crazy folks who loves winter. I love the cold weather and I love the snow, so I am sad that we had such a mild winter. But when I see the flowers beginning to bloom and the longer day light hours start to creep in, my wintry cold heart softens. 

I didn't exactly follow the tutorial for this necklace from Sincerely Kinsey. I was more inspired by the look, then I Googled "how to make a bird's nest necklace" and I read a bunch of tutorials, and then just kind of did it using bits and pieces of other instructions. How's that for an explanation? I just made it. 

I have yet to wear this, as I am a bit of a chicken when it comes to wearing jewelry (get it? chicken! eggs!) Even a simple necklace or pair of dangly earrings have me questioning my taste in fashion.

For now, it looks lovely hanging with my other (rarely worn) jewelry.



  1. I love it! I do hope you'll wear it. I wasn't good at wearing the jewelery I've made -- mostly because it wasn't very good. But I can wear purchased jewelery no sweat, especially if it's gold. :)

  2. That is sooo cute! Thanks for sharing your PIDIs!

  3. Adorable! Seriously... your consistant crafty cuteness amazes me!

  4. I agree on the winter thing. Last year we had 10 snow days. 0 this year. At least we will get out in mid-May sometime.
    I love the necklace too. I attempted this a while ago. Mine came out ok, but I love yours more. So cute!

  5. So very cute! I love it! And since we have 5" of snow here, and I hate winter (except in December), I'd trade places with you!

  6. That is so cute! I think it is great for Spring...maybe debut it on Easter :)

  7. LOVE your necklace. So if you don't wear them, what do you do with them? Gift them?

    PS I LOVE your embroidery cotton and pinned a pic - makes me soooo happy to see COLOUR all neatly ORGANISED :)

  8. This is gorgeous! It's very impressive that you made it.

    Catherine, XO.

  9. Love! Please wear it- it is beautiful!

  10. Google a book called "One thousand gifts"
    this reminds me of this cute necklace.
    I want one :)
