This little ornament is made from a real egg shell covered in a colorful cotton fabric. In the background is a picture of Mulan sitting in front of a pink blossom tree. The little scene inside has a tiny "lucky mini" rubber Iguana made by Safari Ltd, a USA made family owned business. The little Iguana is in a garden.
The egg isn't as delicate as you may think. It has layers of glue and fabric plus the "diamond dust" covering the background. I have dropped them on Cement without breaking.
"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!”
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 her 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 45 years!
