As soon as I heard the challenge I had an idea of what I wanted to make.  Fortunately the women in our family were having a crafting retreat weekend which gave me plenty of time to work on my entry.

I really like the whole steampunk aesthetic, which is the look I was going for with this egg.




The egg is a large easter egg, covered in black polymer clay and decorated with various watch parts and copper wire.  It is hinged and lined with red satin (sorry, no pictures of that part!).

C&C welcome, and don't forget to vote!

Steampunk rocks. I love that you used wee cogs in there and the copper wire looks great. =)

I would never have thought to cover an egg with polymer clay.  This is really cool.
