I'm doing a holiday market in a few weeks and a big part of my inventory are nest, egg and bird related items. I have been making multiples of the same design - like the nests above with some eggs in a smaller size. They are so much fun to create, I feel like mother nature over here weaving together such lovelies.
Nests symbolize the home, security, safety. I like nesting, doing those little things to make a house a home. I'm very thankful for my nest! This bracelet features a Green Girl Studio nest, pewter branches, a branch disk bead and labradorite.
Eggs whisper to us of renewal, birth and hope. An egg is a promise of good things to come - and who doesn't want a reminder of that!
"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" - Matthew 6:26
I think that verse is why I like these symbols most of all - they are a gentle reminder to me that my needs are always met, I can let go of my worries and trust in things bigger than myself.
