I made sure to wear this to determine how if feels when worn. I wore it to my daughter's graduation celebration, and it's actually quite comfortable! I had to be a bit careful when hugging people though given the baby birds' beaks.
This necklace was a labor of love. I constructed the lichen nest with several pieces of silver that I sawed, textured and soldered. The cottonwood leaves are made with silver sheet and wire, and the branches and baby birds are recycled silver that I fused and carved.
The necklace is 25", designed to be a statement piece. From the top leaf to the bottom of the nest is 7".
