Announcement   Hi everyone! Spring and Fall are my busiest times of year and I am working hard on many orders. All Made To Order listings will take several weeks to be completed. Please message me if you have any questions :)

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 orginal 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.

This was such an amazing present for my Mom! Unbelievable workmanship. The seller was great and the egg was very securely packed. Highly recommended!

These beautiful earrings are perfect for a special Xmas gift. My Mom loves pysanka, and So Jeo makes exquisite art works of her eggs. Some day soon I will purchase an egg, but for this Xmas, these delicate, light-weight and gorgeous earrings will delight my egg-loving Mom. Even if eggs aren't your thing, these earrings are worth every penny: just stunning. I found So Jeo a perfect Etsy artist - personable, prompt in her response to my order, and her wrapping is gorgeous - not just careful, but beautiful. And these earrings got here smokin' fast. I'll definitely be shopping at PysankybBySoJeo in the near future, and I can recommend her enthusiastically!
