Filigree Egg

filigree egg


I have made quite a few polymer clay covered eggs over the years but never one like this. The shell has been removed from everywhere that polymer clay was not touching it. I could go farther and completely remove the shell but I like the contrast of the white on the inside on this one.

I was inspired and encouraged to create this by one of my muses. She taught me this technique. If you are thinking that a Muse is a mythical creature you are only partly right. There are muses all around us the key is recognizing them for what they are. Mine is DerondaDesigns. She has given me a great many ideas without even trying. As a matter of fact my bitchy peas came from a conversation we had that had nothing to do with art.
I truly hope that you all find and recognize your own muses.

Deronda's shop is currently on vacation but be sure to check back. She makes beautiful lampwork beads, etched copper and more.

  4. OMG! Star this is just gorgeous! You really outdid yourself with this one. I love the idea of removing the shell like that too. I may have to play around with this idea myself ;-)
