Etsy bead weavers team launched January theme last month: the nest! I was thinking all the winter holiday at this creative input looking for a nice design. I don’t know about you but for me the things are clear: when I need to work on wire all my idea comes from beading and vice versa.
This time is the same: the nests theme is very often found in many design of wire jewelry. Obviously the same way can be transferred in the beading technique but I don’t find it so nice. I tried to look deep to understand the meaning and the symbol. As much as I tried to get the base harder and farther I was.
Simply the nest is a nest! A bunch of springs built by first, or a sand couch made by reptiles or birds.
I have some idea and I made some drawings. I let you know more as I have something to show you. Any suggestion is very welcome!
