These weren't necessarily made for Easter, just as Spring decorations, but this seemed like the best place for them anyway.

An old book of bird's eggs meets a wooden necklace. A bit of light sanding, a scissor snip or two and some glue later, and voila! Smiley



The book had two eggs on one page for some of the smaller eggs, so I included one on each side and then their names on the little tag.

Very cool! When I first saw them, I thought they were set in the wood. Awesome job.

Thank you! I inked the edges of the eggs, so they wouldn't have the white paper edges against the wood Smiley
