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 for the most part my work is free-hand.  I then bleach the shells and coat with a break-resistant solution along with a clear top coat.  These eggs are "break resistant" - not break free.  These gifts are not meant for toddler-size hands (or pets) to play with. 


Designing Each Egg
 

Every egg is unrepeatable, handcrafted, and completely unique.  Each egg's beauty is presented in its natural state (not painted) - only glazed with a protective coating for strength and clear coat finish .

Each egg automatically comes with a white ribbon hanger so that you can hang either as an ornament or display.  If you choose to use as a display and prefer not to hang, the white ribbon can be easily cut and slid out of your design. To display, you can place atop a candlestick, in a decorative bowl or napkin ring, or into an egg holder you have purchased.  Your purchase of one of my decorative eggs does not include an egg holder.  Purchase includes egg only along with decorative card on the "symbology of the egg." (seen below).















Shipping


Each egg is carefully packed in a bubble wrap bag and carefully placed into a decorative metal tin.  The tin is then wrapped again prior to placing in shipping container.  I take all necessary measures so that your item comes to you fully intact and undamaged.  In stock items ship within 1 - 2 business days of your purchase.  If placing a special order item, you will receive item within 1 week (unless notified otherwise.)  Purchaser responsible for shipping costs.  Will be added at checkout.
