Link Library with Melanie

 I have been thinking about the upcoming springtime season and watching the birds make their nests in my neighborhood and I remembered this Urban Nest project that Heather made as a free project here on Art Bead Scene last year.  I love the different colors, shapes, and textures that are mixed together, with the subtle bird reference and slightly urban industrial look.
That’s a little treasure from our archives.  Here are some things that some of our friends have been working on this week:

    A very lovely design!!
    This seems to have a coin-like pendant with some kind of leaves design, like a symbol of poetry (that's what I know). Is it really attached with those leaves or its just your idea to put them together?
