Inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=208731.0 I decided to use some wire and old beads which I've literally had for about 2 years. After making loads of nests I decided that the best thing to do was to pair them with the swallows which I've become so obsessed with lately, which resulted in lots of necklaces... I'll only post close ups of a few to spare you, but I made them in lots of colours..









This necklace is like the ones I posted the other day, but in brass. They don't photograph very well, but the thing in the middle is a swarovski heart:



Here are some earrings, most of them match the swallow stuff. The last pair are so pretty, the photos don't do them justice at all.

Thanks everyone Smiley, I'm really in love with making them now, so much so that I've almost used up all the wire I've had hanging around for years. Guess I'll have to buy some more lol.
