How to make wire nest

You need wire and beads, I am using freshwater pearls but white glass would look great too. First the put three pearls on to the wire and put them together to from a group so they look like eggs.  Then I start to wind the wire around and around the pearls about six to seven times then start secure the circles by going in and out pull tight. Then turn it over the go over making a nest shape  it doesn't have to be neat.now push from the front to make a small dip for the eggs to rest in.now make a loop around your pliers and go around until your have a pleasing loop. sorry about the photos my  son took them. I hope  this helps  ~Wendylike I said in my post the blog I got this from that much better photos and she explained it much better that me.  but I hope this helps...
