This little ornament is made of a chicken egg shell. The figure inside is a little "lucky mini" Coyote*. The background is southwest desert scene. The covering is a cotton fabric. It isn't as delicate as you may think. It has layers of glue and fabric plus the "diamond dust" covering the background.
"lucky Mini" Coyote, made by Safari Ltd, a family owned business.
"I love my 'Amy Eggs'. We bring them out every year. My children loved them and now my grandchildren love them". I get them custom made with names and whatever theme is a favorite that year." Vickie Kendrick
“My eggs have held places of honor in my holiday decorations since I received them....(about 45 years ago). Honestly I'm shocked they all survived this long, but I'm so glad they did!” Debbie Lebeck
I started making “Faberge” eggs in North Carolina in 1972 while my husband was stationed at Pope Air Force base. Eggery in the south was big back then. I learned to hinge duck eggs, with doors, and put music boxes inside. I even made a couple of Ostrich egg clocks. What I loved making most were the little chicken eggs covered with fabric and little scenes inside. When I moved to the Monterey Peninsula I sold my eggs at a Christmas store in Carmel and at The La Playa Hotel Christmas show where Maggie Eastwood (Clint’s wife) bought personalized egg ornaments for their children.
I stopped making eggs as life went on, but always kept a supply of miniatures. In 2014 I brought out my supplies and made a batch for Artistic Portland, a Co-op store for artists in Portland Oregon. I love making these little ornaments. They are very sturdy and have two layers of glue plus a layer of “diamond dust”. My friends and family have had these ornaments for 40 years and bring them out every year to hang on their tree.
I hope you enjoy them too!
