Lariat Style Necklace featuring Bird Nest, Dainty Bird Charm and Leafy Branch

Dainty little bird charm, bird nest and leafy branch come together with chrysocolla gemstone “eggs” all set in sterling silver to make a lovely lariat style necklace.

I started with a delicate sterling silver plated link chain. I next added accents of chrysocolla gemstone which is an amazing stone of blue and green swirled together. (Each bead looks like a little mini planet Earth.) Then I added a leafy branch connector. The chain slips through the last leaf in a faux lariat style and from the chain dangles a bird nest with three additional chrysocolla “eggs.” Below the nest is a flying swallow bird charm. The whole necklace is finished with a toggle clasp.

This asymmetrical design allows you to adjust how you wear it. You can wear it shorter and closer to the neck with a long dangle of the nest, or, you can wear it longer on the neck with a shorter nest dangle. It’s very versatile and allows you to pair this piece with many different shirts and necklines as a result. The total length is 18″

It’s such a sweet little necklace and the color of the chrysocolla is so pretty. It’s just a great piece in it’s simplicity and style!

They really don’t need another store-bought knick-knack and how many times can you really give them a gift card? Well, here’s one idea that might help. A personalized, handmade pendant.

Bird nest pendants are lovely, dainty little pieces made with non-tarnish, sterling silver wire. And here’s the beautiful thing – they can be customized and personalized with the colors of your choice! The possibilities are endless. How about birthstones for a Mom or one to give to Grandma celebrating her grand kids? Maybe you want to give one to your sibling to show the bond between you both. Even one for your best friend. You could also include birthstones in remembrance of those who have passed as a way of keeping them close to your heart.
