Little Polymer Clay Bird's Nest

Here's a little nest with eggs that I made out of polymer clay. I'm going to make a few more and put them in the little bird cages we have hanging at work. In a few weeks they'll be replaced with birds. I haven't had the easiest winter and to me this nest symbolizes new beginnings, re-birth, and (of course) Spring! The nest is about 2" in diameter and 1" high at its tallest. It is made entirely of polymer clay.
Interestingly, when I baked the nest I used the toaster oven we have at work which is old and not gauged correctly. Because of this, the eggs browned a little on top. I actually really like that they did, because it looks more authentic now like the nest has actually been outside and had a bird sitting on it.
