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!

Seven Eggs In A Basket

Or, well, a nest really but who’s counting? Oh wait, I was that day. A friend of mine wanted a custom bird nest pendant made to represent both the kids and the daughters-in-law as well. Which made for SEVEN eggs in one little nest. I have to be honest, at first, I wasn’t sure it was possible. But I pulled it off. And it came out pretty darn cute:

She liked that the nest was a little crowded because that’s really how her Mother-in-law’s home is; full of people and love. So it worked out to be perfect for UK Mother’s day. (Which is celebrated in April rather than May here in the States.)

Where there’s an idea, there’s a will and a way. And this is just one example of how I’m happy to take an idea – like starting with this and making it a seven birthstone egg pendant with a swallow charm that was the perfect, custom gift. So let me know what I can make one-of-a-kind for you!
