This elaborate egg ornament was inspired by both the fabulous jeweled Fabergé Russian eggs of Fabergé and beautiful Ukrainian pysanky “painted” eggs, a folk art form that dates from the tenth century. Our “faux” (imitation) jeweled egg adheres to all the color and motif symbolism of traditional pysanka, but is so richly embellished with glittering aurora borealis crystals that it could almost be a real Fabergé egg! Techniques include numerous types of needlepoint stitches.
