February 2012 Challenge: NEST

It's time to go to Etsy Beadweavers blog and choose your favorite nest jewel:

The inspiration was given by last month's competition winner, who said:
“It will still be winter in the Northern hemisphere in February and I believe thinking about nestling could make us feel comfortable. What I would like us to do: If you think about (or google for) "nest", you will find much more than birds building nests. Insects like bees, hornets and others also do.
So let´s get inspired by their pieces of art. Let´s see what ideas nature gives us. I´m sure, everybody will find a way to find their own interpretation of NEST…"

You have time until February 15th to vote for the piece you like the most and please share this gorgeous display as much as you can!

February 2012 EBW challenge

This month's EBW challenge is really lovely.
Nesting is what's on my mind almost every day since my tiny house is pretty small and messy, and I'm trying very hard to make it as comfortable and tidy as possible.
So my entry for this challenge came out naturally

I had a lot of fun making the nest, it's a plastic ring covered in RAW technique and then I made a circular peyote back for it.

I would have loved to put inside some 3D hearts, but even using the size 15 miyukis it was impossible to fit in 2 of them.

Please visit our team blog, between the 9th and 15th of February and vote for your favorite entry!
