Three Muses..Eggs..

The Challenge this week on Three Muses is to see what we can do with eggs!
I thought I'd show you one of my Goose  eggs.  A friend and I went to a Saturday class to alter a goose egg many, many years ago and this is what I did on that Saturday.
It's an egg casket that opens up to reveal the brilliant blue lining.
The outside is painted a cream pearlescent and the top has gold mesh stuck on, decorated with 'jewels' and tiny thin braids stuck all round.
I don't think my fingers and hands would let me do it now. I made several at the time which sit in a cabinet but this was the first one and my favourite.
Every time I look at it I think of that day with my friend Anne and what fun we had.
Sadly Anne passed away several years ago.

Before I read your post I thought I was looking at a fine Faberge heirloom, June! It's just amazing. I love your new header, too--the words are very meaningful to me

What a gorgeous work of art, June! I also thought I was looking at a Faberge egg. When I saw it I thought of the Faberge exhibit that is traveling around and will be in our city in July at the fine arts museum. I can hardly wait.
