This is an egg that I did in 2001. I call it "The Flower Fairy". After drawing pattern on a Rhea egg, I cut and hinged the doors to the front of egg along with the lattice cuts on the sides and back. The inside is painted and sprinkled with diamond dust glitter. The flowers inside I made from tiny strips
of paper called "Quilling". The flower fairy was hand made by a person in Connecticut where I lived at that time. The exterior is the natural Rhea egg color with light green painted at desired locations of the design. The fine gold braid is used to outline design and doors. Pink crystal chain surrounds the doors, along with gold braid. Clear no hole beads are placed on the door
and gold filigree shapes are added for extra finishes. The egg is then mounted on the stand and a top finial is added and attached.
