Eas... Christmas Eggs by Chenria Eas... Christmas Eggs by Chenria
Call me crazy for engraving eggs on Christmas... but I have a very reasonable explanation.
A family friend, a really lovely elder lady, gave me a wonderful bureau for my new flat. I always wanted such a piece of furniture :heart: they are pretty and adorable. And she had one and offered it to me for free and I was thrilled. So she didn't want anything for it and so I thought I should at least get her something for Christmas. And she always liked the engraved eggs my mom has in one of her many display places XD but mom won't part with the eggs I made for her... so we still found some leftover dyed (hollow) eggs from last Easter and so I just sat down and engraved three of them to make the elderly lady a gift she will hopefully like.

I haven't seen her yet since she was visiting her family and so I hope to give it to her next week.

Each egg took about an hour to engrave. My favorite is the purple one ^^"

Edit: Added the "New Years Eggs" XD
I did the other two eggs last week for the lovely lady who gave me the bureau :3 it is an awesome furniture and she was so happy about the other three eggs … So I decided to make two more so she has a set of five ^^*

Oh gawsh this is beautiful! I love stuff like this! These are really pretty! The purple is my favourite too, but I love all of them! :D Really great stuff, I'd love to do stuff like this, but I probably wouldn't have the patience for it! XD

:glomp: thank you so so much, hon! I am so happy you like the eggs :meow: they were fun to do.

And they are really not that difficult. With a glass engraver it is like drawing lines with a heavy pen - just noisier XD

You do such lovely work on the eggs and I was surprised to see them crop again so soon!
I am sure she will be thrilled with them. That was such a nice thing to do for her. And that was also a lovely gesture on her part. She probably knows that that bureau was going to be appreciated by someone.

Ich bin sehr für Ostereier zu Weihnachten und Schokoweihnachtsmänner zu Ostern! Alles andere ist schon so klischeebehaftet, das es langweilig ist *g*
Außerdem sind die Eier echt schön und ich bewundere immer wieder die Geduld sowas fertig zu kriegen, ohne die Dinger in kleine Scherben zu zerbrechen, oder genervt an die nächste Wand zu pappen! Wird sicher super ankommen!
