Little Wire Bird Nests Use 24 gauge wire, (brass, silver tone or sterling silver) and little cultured pearls or pearly-looking beads. Thread the beads onto the wire. Turn, bend the wire around the beads threading back through itself here and there. The more kinks the better. You can wrap bands of wire tightly around gathered rings of the nests for additional reinforcement - a good idea when making nests for jewelry.
