i stumbled on this today

this is a segment from a show that i was on for the DIY network a few years ago. They did a subsequent piece with me a year or so later which was actually a ten minute (or so) segment on one of their programs. The piece that they are showing here was a little interstitial segment. Sort of funny. i definitely didn't call myself an expert on this subject, but they wanted to make it sound like i was! hehe. enjoy!

here are a few pictures that show some of these eggs in better resolution. I don't make them too often these days as they are quite a production.... and it seems that i am moving more and more things out of the way so that i can play in the mud. But i do still enjoy the process and have spent many hours making thousands of these little eggey jewels. A few years ago i even got a commission for a dozen of them to be made into ornaments for one of my favorite designers- Rebecca Cole. (remind me to tell you a story about THAT tv show sometime! good times.)

These are beautiful. I couldn't get the video to work on my Mac, but I got the general idea from the pictures and story write-up. Truly amazing!
