Tiny versions of real-life items are one of the biggest trends right now, especially in jewelry-making. If you've been wondering how to use common jewelry supplies to make something unique, this tutorial on How to Make a Bird Nest Necklace is for you. A recycled sunglasses lens is the base for copper wire, which makes a realistic miniature bird's nest, and turquoise acrylic beads, which mimic robin's eggs. Glass glitter adds a fun splash of whimsy to this adorable pendant. All of the colors in this bird's nest pendant are customizable, so the results are only limited to your imagination!
