Finally, I am pleased to offer a bird's nest ring! This nest is constructed upon a slender yet sturdy sterling silver (.925) adjustable ring base, handmade in the USA by another Etsy seller. The nest is made of randomly crocheted and woven fine silver (.999) wire, with freshwater pearl eggs nestled snugly and securely inside. The nest is approximately 5/8 inch or 15 mm across and 1/4 inch or 6 mm in height. The ring is a 1mm band with a hammered texture that is adjustable to fit comfortably up to a size 9.

You may choose any number of pearls from one to five, or one turquoise egg in your nest. Please let me know your choice during checkout. If you do not specify, I will send a 2-egg nest as pictured.

This ring is also available in oxidized silver, which is a dark, antiqued finish with glossy highlights. Also available in goldfill.

Birds make their nests using materials they find in their environment. They use twigs, leaves, feathers and grasses, even hair, mud or bits of trash to build safe shelters for their delicate eggs. Some are very simple, and some are so densely and elaborately woven that they are used for many generations.

I began making these nests out of bits I found lying around, as real birds do. I collect all the scraps from unsuccessful projects and experiments in wire crochet. When there's enough, I crumple up the leftover bits of mesh and bind them tightly together into a nest. Former "mistakes" find new life this way as nesting material - it lets me feel free to try new ideas.


The symbolism of the bird's nest makes it a great gift. It's perfect to celebrate a pregnancy. People order them for their mothers, grandmothers or sisters with one egg for each sibling in the family. One bride gave pendants to her mother and mother-in-law on her wedding day to commemorate the couple "leaving the nest". And another bride chose one to wear for her wedding, moved by the fact that they are made using pieces from former mistakes. Both she and her husband, her childhood sweetheart, had made the mistake of marrying the wrong people before they found each other again and made their home together. Three pearls were for her three new step-sons.
