For the Nature Lover! Simple, classic Spring Pussy Willow earrings.

Unique batik designs created using the same traditional methods of Pysanky or Ukrainian eggs. The process begins by meticulously drawing out the design in pencil before it is waxed and dyed. The beeswax in applied by writing with a heated tool called a kistka, a fine stylus which is used to seal the design on the shell. The egg is then dipped in dye and all areas not already sealed with beeswax will take on that color. Waxing and dyeing with each different colored dye is repeated until the design is complete. Most commonly, the natural white of the eggshell is waxed first and then the egg is dyed in progression from lightest to darkest, waxing between dyes to retain the colors desired. The wax is melted off using a candle flame and then the pieces are cut out from the egg.

*UV Eco resin is used to fill the backs and to finish the fronts of the jewelry, giving a clear, strong piece that will last you many, many years. Most commonly, it is used to seal counter tops and bar tops. The Eco resin that I use contains UV filters so that they dyes will not fade and it contains NO Toxic Organic Compounds or Heavy Metals and is “Greenseal” approved, being formulated with no harsh chemicals.
