I've been playing around with the Vintaj wire and starting making these precious little bird's nests. I actually found a great tutorial on YouTube by Denise Mathew http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBLL5M1dgcs. I decided to make mine with more of a bottom to cradle the eggs, but Denise's video was a great start. I like to use gemstones that look more like real eggs and also experiment with different sizes.
