These precious little egg pendants are made using the traditional batik wax and dye process on REAL blown finch eggs. They are given a base coat of uv resistant clear varnish as well as filled and coated with several layers of a special crystal clear polymer finish to give them strength and durability. (This is the same finish often used on countertops to seal coins, bills and other memorabilia into the surface.)
The level of difficulty is extremely high when working with the delicate finch eggs, but very rewarding. They are so fragile, their paper thin shells will often crumble in your fingers or burn almost instantaneously during wax removal. However, once the special polymer finish is applied, they are amazingly strong and can withstand any big hugs you may receive!
The little bead cup is 14 karat solid gold, and the bail is gold-filled. Packaged in a gold foil box and red ribbon ready for gift giving. (Gold chain and matching earrings not included.) As a little piece of artwork in it's ownright, your pendant is signed by me, the artist, and comes with a digital COA (EBSQ Certificate of Ownership) to register your piece once you receive it.
