READY TO SHIP!
This design idea combines TWO egg shells of the same size and shape to create an unusual and delicate lace effect. I used a high-speed drill to carve patterns in both a soft green and a white chicken egg shell. I attached an oval lace applique cut from the white shell to the front and back of the carved green shell. The green color peeks through the white lace in this fine hybrid egg. This large chicken egg measures 2 inches tall.

Each egg I create is a wonder of nature, a rare and beautiful work of art.

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.®
