Additional Information
A bird’s nest is a structure built by birds to hold eggs and to raise its young, composed of organic material such as twigs, grass, and leaves. Our bird’s nest however is made completely of little glass beads. A cup nest surrounded by leaves and berries rests atop a cuff blank completely encased in exquisitely woven beads. And in its center, a beautiful lampworked bead sits in the nest. A fun and quirky project that is bound to bring a smile to all who witness the bird’s nest.
Students will Learn:
Learn how to cover the cuff blank using flat chenille and right-angle weave; how to build the nest using a netting stitch; how to attach the nest and embellishments.
