This unique little diorama is made from a real egg covered with a cotton material (the material in the 2nd photo is the material that is on the egg in the store.) I forgot to take a photo of the new one. In the background is the beautiful St. John Bridge just North of Portland Oregon. In the foreground is a tiny deer surrounded by nature. At the top inside are clouds made of cotton. It is very strong as it has layers of glue, "diamond dust," and fabric. It comes with a little stand made of a !/2 an egg shell.
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!
