My Bird Nest Necklace

Yes, I have been away for far too long and neglected this blog for too long. Work and family demands and with the CHinese New Year, I have been away to Hongkong for a short break and all.


The weather was cool and I have also been busy with writing.Yes, Writing is one of my hobbies too:) Trying to finish a little novel by the end of the year, if I can.


Oops, I digressed from the issue at hand. Some good news, is that I have been approached by an overseas store to consign my items abroad, but I am still in the midst of making a decision.


Another thing is that I am really glad with the reviews I had so far with

My version of the BIRD NEST NEckLace


There are no more in the store at the moment and I will most likely whip up a few more soon with pearls and all. I have other types of nests in the shop too.

I probably mentioned it the previous time I did up the square nest pendant, that inspiration came from a magazine article by Karen Galbraith. I have been searching for her website but there does not seem to be any, to thank her for her article.

And, I have even discovered that there are even tutorials that online on how to do up the bird nest ring and necklace. I guess the craze for nest jewelry must be rather strong to warrant such attention.
I did a search for nest necklaces on etsy and I have whipped out some great links for you:
Jewelry is subjective, not everyone shares the same taste:)
So, you may see some other forms of nest jewelry that would interest you and support some etsyians with handmade stuff too:)
Do check these nest jewelry out---
