I'm chatting with a sweet friend of mine last Thursday afternoon and she was wearing this pretty necklace that I couldn't seem to take my eyes off. Then it hits me! I've seen this very necklace on one of my (voluminous) blogs that I follow and then all the questions come flying out of me...

"I LOVE that! Did you make it?"

"Was it easy??"

"You found that on Pinterest, didn't you??!?!" (She is a fellow Pinterest junkie - like me.)

I meekly looked over at my husband this afternoon and asked him if I could make a run to Hobby Lobby.
His face got that defeated look and he quietly said, "Yes." But I knew it really meant things like, "Oh no. How much is this trip going to cost?" or "Doesn't she have everything in that crap, er, CRAFT closet of hers that Hobby Lobby carries??" 

I come home with 20 gauge jewelry wire, and 8mm glass pearl beads. (Well, I brought home a little more than that but for this blog post that's all that is relative.)

And then I opened up this blog post tutorial (the same one that my sweet friend used for her work of loveliness) and went at it. 

It was just as easy as it looked/sounded and here's my sweet Bird Nest Necklace.
