Bird nest necklace}
I have been seeing a lot of bird nest jewelry around lately. They are beautiful and I love the trend so I thought I would try making my own. These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies. This necklace would make a lovely Mother's day gift, which just happens to be coming up this weekend! What you'll need: - Jewelry wire (I prefer using a 24 gage because it is easier to manipulate but the 20 gage can work well too with the help of some round nose pliers) - pearls or glass beads - necklace chain - jump ring and a clasp Select the beads you want, string them onto your wire and arrange them as you'd like. then simply wrap the wire around the beads wrap some wire in the space between each bead (I like the look of three loops but you could just do one or two if you prefer) this is what the back looked like. now attach a jump ring and a clasp to the end of a necklace chain and this is what you end up with :) I love how each one is so different

DIY ROCK NECKLACES! Hey guys, I am really excited about this next DIY tutorial because I got to smash things to pieces with a hammer!

Safety Pin Bracelet My daughter came to me one day and said she saw these really cool bracelets made from safety pins and beads. As luck would have it, I had just seen one as well so I promised to make her one. She wanted one made with smaller pins than the one she had seen, so I bought 3/4″ safety pins for mine. DIY Feather Necklace All you need is a couple packages of feathers from the craft store, some wooden beads (also found pre-packaged in craft stores), some hefty string (leather is great), scissors, a very sharp point and an hour or two. Arrange feathers as needed and cut them to appropriate lengths. Poke holes in them about 1/2 an inch from the top (this may need some extra elbow grease - i had to lightly use a hammer and a needle to make a hole on a few) then string the beads and the feathers together, tie off and you are DUNZO.
