Have me create an instant heirloom of timeless appeal that will be treasured by generations to come.

I will immortalize any subject of your choosing with this time-honored practice of cutting profile portraits of paper from the digital images you provide!

The best silhouettes start with a detailed profile photograph. To ensure a crisp and lifelike silhouette, it is important that the photographer be on the same eye level as the subject; it's best to have the sitter positioned in front of a plain background. While I can alter hairstyle and clothing, even add or subtract hats, I can't produce a true and recognizable profile without the proper image!

I will provide a sketch from the photo you send and, upon your approval, will use it to cut a bust from the finest imported French silhouette paper. The traditional size of a bust is between 3 and 4 inches in height. It will be centered and glued on 8 1/2 by 11 inch ivory or white card stock - unless you request an unmounted cutting. If you are interested in a larger profile, indicate the size you prefer. All silhouettes are special order and require direct contact with me so that I can fully understand and meet your expectations.

I offer duplicate silhouettes - cut at the same time as the original - for a small additional charge. Click the option for a duplicate in the menu above and I will add one to your order.

These portraits can be used in many creative ways; they make fine designs as etched and carved eggshells! Contact me with your ideas and have me make something that reflects your individual style.

Absolutely stunning eggs that I can’t even describe how beautiful they are. I’ve received them very quickly. I couldn’t be happier

I had a terrific experience working with The Nest at Windy Corner. I will be commissioning more work in the future because of the high quality upon which I can rely and attention to detail.

The eggs Beth makes are exquisite. The amount of detail is mesmerizing. Got this for my Easter-egg-loving Mom, and it will be a wrench to give it to her. I will definitely be shopping at theNestatWindyCorner in the near future. Beth's works are worth every penny. Wait until you see how she wraps each package - not only is the egg delivered in its own cozy fiber nest, but that nest is nestled in crisp whit paper grass which fills an oblong container tied with a golden bow, topped with a beautiful blue snowflake and then wrapped in tissue paper depicting nest and birds! It's like getting a present inside of a present. With each layer, my smile just grew! Beth you are amazing!!
