Making Me Hungry

Did you know that copper wire can take on the most fabulous colors?

Chocolate

brown nest with five aqua howlite beads

Strawberry
pink nest with three brown turquoise beads

I am completely in love with the new wire I picked up for my little nests...what do you think?  Do you have a favorite?  I'm toying with different sizes of nests, too- the chocolate nest has TWICE as much wire as the more petite strawberry nest.  I'm curious what it would look like with more, but working with that much wire might just make me crazy!  As it is, I kind of just blindly plunge into it and wait for it to become something.  I really, really love the process of making these- each one turns out so different.  Or maybe they just look different to me, seeing as they're my little babies :)

Look for these in the shop over the weekend!
