Ostrich eggs are so much fun to work with, first of all, they are huge and very sturdy to hold. The above egg measures 7" x 5.5" and I think, would be very hard to brake.
I used lots of gold and silver on this piece and went with a dragonfly and leaf design. I also added clear Swarovski crystals floating all around the design.
My Red Rose turkey egg, painted with a full, open red rose. I fashioned a hanger for this egg out of pink Swarovski crystals. I've had roses on the brain lately, I'm working on a red , red roses ceiling tin at the moment. I've also been working on a new Emu egg jewelry box (this one has nothing to do with roses) with the theme of little blue birds. I'm recoving this week from a nasty case of the flu so it feels like I'm just getting back to work and into some new projects as well as working on some special orders for some friends here in blog land. I should be showing some of my new pieces soon.
