This was an entry into a juried craftshow for our local 'Bread & Honey Festival'. There were several craft categories but the only one my eggs would fit was the "anything with a bee" category. This is a large goose egg, black on the bottom and variegated gold leafing on the top. I used gold cording to make the beehive 'lines' and doorway and the leafing went over that. I found a vintage costume jewellery bee brooch that I used as the thumbpiece. The flowers on the stand are painted a pearl white and I added a crystal to the centre of each flower.
