The February EBW Challenge theme is simply Nest. You can read more about it here. Around the time that the challenge was announced, I came across this tutorial via Pintrest.
There are a number of variations of this idea out there, but I decided that this tutorial would work perfectly for a little nest that could be part of a beadwoven piece.
goals for this year, I used my skinny wrapped peyote cuff design as the base for this bracelet. The nest is so small and delicate that it doesn't need a substantial piece of beadwork paired with it. It just needs something that fits with its style.
blueseraphim. I'd never embellished a cuff this skinny with lamp work beads, but it worked very well. (I used a larger white bead of hers for the clasp, too.) I have some square beads from her in other colors and may use them for similar bracelets. Any thoughts on this?
This bracelet is available in my Etsy shop right here. Voting for the EBW challenge will take place February 9-15. I will post more information about it then. For now, you can check out the other entries for the challenge by searching "ebwc" on Etsy.
