Little and Large lol

I don’t have a card to post until later today for the Whimsy Wee Stamps sneak peek so I thought I would post another Christmas ornament I made.  This ornament was made from a goose and a duck egg with a lot of cutting with an air drill (similar to a dentists drill driven by a compressor).   This ornament takes pride of place right in the front of the tree.  My bezzie mate Karen has it’s twin on her tree.

Once it was finished I decided I loved it so much I wanted to try it on something bigger, so made one from a Rhea and Goose egg.  You can see the difference in the sizes in the picture below.  A Rhea shell is a lot thicker than a goose egg but not quite as bad as an ostrich shell which is horrendous to cut, but this still took hours and hours to cut then decorate with ultra fine braid, glitter and rhinestones.  All the flowers are paper tole hardened off with a resin type liquid which makes them as tough as porcelain.

A close up of the larger egg, which I (not so cleverly) taught at a convention – I pre-cut all the shells for the students.  Never ever again lol.

It wasn’t long after finishing these two I stopped decorating eggs …. I wonder why lol.

  16. WOW! WOW! WOW! These are absolutely STUNNING! Are you sure you're not playing a trick on us, and secretly bought them from a very expensive shop, maybe Harrods? Seriously though, you must have the patience of a saint to make something like this. Ooh! Just what Squirrel said - great minds obviously think alike, lol.

  34. Stunning specimens of your creativity! I tried this craft and soon found it was very tedious but I did love it. I never made anything quite so beautiful! I did learn breathing the dust was hazardous and learned to wear a mask. I soon gave this up and moved on as I had to work on this in the basement!

  46. Bev, these are totally and utterly exquisite. They are real heirlooms and I'm sure you will treasure them always. The amount of work that you've put into making and then decorating them is mind boggling. i don't think I have ever seen anything so exquisite.

  53. Oh Bev! These are magnificent! They look as if they could be sold in an upper end jewelry store. The details are amazing. I have no idea how you made them! If you ever need to raise money for a charity...these would go for hundreds I am sure! They are stunning...and you are wonderfully talented!

  54. OMG, these are stunning! I can't believe my eyes. I've seen lots of cut eggs, but most say they're done with a laser. Yours are gorgeous!! Can't believe that you taught a class in this and pre-cut their eggs for 'em. I hope it was a small class, or it would have taken you forever! I'd have these in a locked glass case! Oh my I'm flabbergasted....
