The term "Fabergé egg" has become a synonym of luxury and the eggs are regarded as masterpieces of the jeweller's art. The eggs are made of precious metals or hard stones decorated with combinations of enamel and gem stones. Always exquisite and breathtaking.
Another spectacular Faberge egg dated 1903.
Lovely hand decorated Ukrainian eggs. All patiently hand wrought.
These are eggs decorated with a Victorian marbling technique. I adore these eggs for their detail and color. Brilliant.
My sister's favorite eggs from our childhood. She loves these panoramic, sugar molded eggs.
And of course, an egg worthy of a sea witch. This little Mermaid carving won a blue ribbon in 2007 at the international egg art show in Dallas Texas. How extraordinary a work of art using such a simple and organic medium. I am always awed by the talent that is among us. Have a wonderful day all. Sea Witch
