An egg is not just an egg. "Art is about bending things most people see as a straight line".

Carved Egg Shell Art
Handcrafted Egg Shell Carved Unique Gift
Each egg is unique and original!
PROCESS: I look for the best egg shells, with the best smoothness and quality (crack-free). I then pump in air with a special tool to empty egg of its contents. I soak each egg in a soapy solution to clean thoroughly. Once dry (usually 24 hours), I am ready to carve. I use a high powered drill created specifically to use on eggs to create fine detail. I use some stencils to trace a design beore I carve, but mostly my work is free-hand. I then take each finished shell and place in a solution of bleach to remove any remaining fragments of shell that are still attached to inner membrane. Then rinse and dry.
Every egg is unrepeatable, handcrafted, and completely unique. Each egg is in its natural state (not painted) only glazed with a protective coating for strength and clear coat finish on top. You can specify whether you want a white ribbon hanger or not. Having a ribbon hanger enables you to be able to hang or use as an ornament. An egg without a ribbon hanger is best presented sitting atop a candlestick or egg holder of your choice.
Each egg is carefully packed with bubble wrap into the special gift box.
I will take all the necessary measures so that your item comes to you fully intact and undamaged.
Please, allow me 1 week to make and ship.
Great for unique wedding/anniversary gift, new baby, birthday, graduation, retirement, gift for mom or grandma, or housewarming gift for new home. Also good to use as a Christmas ornament.
