Materials

blown eggshell, sealant

These eggs are featured in the Favorite Things section of the 2017 March/April Victoria Magazine!*

The process for creating this delicate beauty begins by sketching a design on a clean blown chicken eggshell. Then a high speed drill is used to hand carve the pattern shown above. Your egg will be cut in the pattern as shown with minor variations, making each a unique work of art and a rare and beautiful wonder of nature.

The eggs offered for sale are a large chicken eggs. Vines and flowers create a graceful pattern filling the oval that covers the front of the eggs. Please pick the natural color of the shell: white, brown, or pale green or you may choose to purchase all three.

*In most cases I will select these eggs from inventory but I may need to carve one based on your color choice. So... to accommodate variations in my schedule - especially during holiday seasons - please allow me up to 3 weeks to complete and prepare your order for shipping.

All eggs come with complimentary Lucite stands and are beautifully packaged. They are wrapped with great care and shipped via USPS Priority mail. If this is to be sent as a gift, alert me and I will remove pricing from the packing slip. Feel free to write a message to the recipient at checkout and I will include your remarks in a card.

Victorians, fond of ornamentation, decorated their eggs with snippets of daily life: trade cards, ribbons, beads, and bits of old lace. The eggs I create today echo these treasures. They are etched or carved in patterns reminiscent of fine Victorian needlework, and so I call these delicate works of art, Victorian Lace Eggs.®
