How to make it:
Cheryl loved the idea of adding a natural element to this necklace.  So she chose a photo of a bird nest for her Photo Frame Memory Charm.  These charms are so easy to use.  Just slide out the acetate and use it to trim your photo to size.  The photo slides into the acetate sleeve and into the charm.  You can even use two photos, one for each side with this reversible photo charm.
Next Cheryl made some beaded links by threading eye pins with the blue green beads she chose.  These are joined together with jump ring chains between the beaded links.  You can make your necklace any length you want.  A princess length necklace is 16″ to 18″.  Add a magnetic clasp fastener for easy closing.
After Cheryl completed her beaded chain, she added the photo charm and a butterfly charm dangle on a ball end head pin.  So pretty.  It will be one of your favorites in your jewelry box.

DIY Watercolor Splash Bird Nest Necklace Recipe from eCrafty.com
How to Make It:
First Cheryl created her bird nest pendant.  She used 24 gauge silver wire she had on hand for this.  You can find many helpful YouTube videos to show you how.  She started by stinging three 6mm aqua beads for the eggs onto the wire.  Just bend over a small tag end to hold the beads in place.  Then wrap the wire around the beads in a flat circle to form the nest.  With the last part of the wire, she threaded the wire into the center of the nest and over the outside to hold the shape she wanted.  She used a jump ring to fasten the nest pendant to her necklace.
