Announcement    Otherwise known as “Pysanky”, Ukrainian Eggs are an ancient art form still practiced today. These are done in the traditional way of using beeswax and dye in a wax resistant process, or batik-like process, on blown eggs. The whole process takes many hours to complete, the total time depending on the intricacy of the design. The symbols and colors decorating the eggs have special meanings, and can often mean many different things.

Shipping insurance in included with all egg shipments. Please see my policy page for more information.

Thank you for stopping by my shop! If you would like more info on Pysanky or to see more pictures of eggs please visit my website at www.dandylioneggs.com.

About

I started making Ukrainian Eggs around 1999 when I came across a book and kit on how to make them, and gave it to my grandmother, who had some geese and loved to decorated their eggs. Well, I ended up using the kit myself after she tried it and decided it wasn't for her, and ever since, I have loved to make pysanky whenever I have time in my busy life! I enjoy making traditional pysanky from many different design books as well as coming up with my own contemporary designs, and sometimes mixing up the two. I draw inspiration from anything I find beautiful or interesting. I love the symbolism and the different meanings that can go into the egg, as if the egg itself is telling a story, or giving someone a blessing or wishes for their life. So far, I have worked on quail, chicken, duck and goose eggs. One day I will gather the courage to tackle bigger eggs such as rhea, emu, and ostrich! I live with a husband, 2 kids, 2 dogs, a cat, fish and a gecko so finding the time to decorate eggs has been a challenge. I hope to continue doing it as long as I can! It's been very rewarding sharing them with others.

Hi and welcome to my shop! Each egg comes with an egg stand or a finding attached with ribbon for hanging and wrapped in a gift box. If you would like me to attach a finding with ribbon to an egg that doesn't already have one, I will be happy to do it, just let me know.

A note on pricing: I try to price my eggs on a scale of how much time they took to make. The simple ones are generally lower priced, and the more intricate, complicated eggs that took much longer to make are higher priced.
