For the challenge I instantly knew what I wanted to make, and it is inspired by a Faberge Egg. The egg is called The Bay Tree Egg, and it is the second image.





In process shots:








The only thing I bought to make this were the two eggs. They were about .15 on sale after Easter, and everything else I already had.

Thanks for looking, and this was a fun challenge! Grin

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Thanks for all the comments! Smiley

It is setting in one of my bathrooms, and looks very pretty reflecting in the mirror. Think I may experiment with doing other colors of beads, and cold porcelain flowers.
