 So I wanted to make something special for a friend who lives in another state, something kind of personal.  After seeing some beautiful knitted/crochetted pendants (that I can't find the pics of now  Sad) I made this.  I decided to use 5 beads instead of the usual (or so it seems) 3 to commemorate all five of her children - the two lovely kids she has now, and the triplets that she lost, two of the babies stillborn and one who lived for 10 mins. 

I hope she likes it.

I crochet it (kind of!  I did a bit of chain stitch, somewhat making it all up as I went along) from 32 guage brass wire, then aged both the nest and the brass bird.

This shot is a bit blurry but it gives an idea of the size.

I am sending it off in the post today along with some other goodies  Grin

That's a really thoughtful gift and so beautifully made-I would be honoured to receive this as a gift x

To live a creative life we must lose our fear of being wrong.
