“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
The story of Ammi Eggs
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 craft 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, trims and pictures. In 2014 I brought out my supplies and made a batch for Artistic Portland. 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!
I can make a custom egg for you including a name and date. We can converse on the "conversations."
