Announcement    Attn: The wait time for Made To Order Commissions is very long, please keep this in mind before ordering or contact me to see what I have that will be ready soon.

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by my shop!
I have been receiving many orders, I'm so glad that you all like my work! However, I can only work so fast and need to catch up! A great problem to have, I know, but please be aware that any new Made To Order items will not be started until I catch up with my backlog of orders. Wait times can be very long but I hope they are worth the wait! I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I am leaving my shop open, any in stock items are ready to ship immediately. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message!

Did you know that my jewelry is totally handmade and is environmentally friendly? The resin I use to strengthen the pieces is commonly used to seal countertops, so it is extremely durable. It is crystal clear, contains UV filters to keep the colors bright and is made with NO Toxic Organic Compounds or Heavy Metals and is “Greenseal” approved, being formulated with no harsh chemicals!

I make two types of jewelry, whole small eggs and cutout pieces of larger eggs:

1. Small eggs such as finch, lovebird and parakeet eggs are injection filled and coated with UV Eco resin to create mini Pysanky jewelry! The finch eggs are a mere ¾” tall!

2. For cutouts, I carefully cut out pieces of the eggshell using a rotary tool with a diamond blade. For these I mostly work with chicken, turkey, goose, rhea and ostrich. Then the backs of these pieces are filled with resin for strength. Once the resin has cured, the pieces are trimmed again with the rotary tool, hand sanded and then the holes are drilled. A topcoat of UV Eco resin* is used to give them a crystal clear shine.

Pysanky or Ukrainian Easter Eggs are an ancient folk art from Ukraine. They are created on real eggshells by alternating the application of hot beeswax applied with a stylus or writing pen called a kistka and dipping in dyes of progressively darker shades. The traditional symbols and colours each have different meanings. The last step is to remove the wax with a candle flame to reveal the beautiful design hidden beneath.

I pride myself on my original designs which come from my own life experiences and imagination. I find that nature is one of my greatest inspirations and you will often see flowers, birds and other beautiful elements that are found right from my own backyard. I hope that when looking at my eggs you will feel the intensity of the passion and dedication that I put into my work.
