About the Pysanky Technique -
Ukrainian Hand-Decorated Eggs,are made using the ancient method of wax resist. Lines of wax are applied to the emptied eggshell, using a small tool called a "kistka". The egg is then put into a dye bath, with the wax protecting the covered shell from subsequent color changes. This process is alternately repeated (wax/dye/wax/dye). After the full design is applied, the wax is removed (by melting it over a candle flame and wiping off) to reveal the bright colors underneath. The shapes are then cut out and smoothed/sanded. Goldtone and Swarowski crystal embellishments are added before the piece is with epoxy resin. This will strengthen the piece and help protect the colors.
Gift Packaging: Each pair of earrings will be packaged in an organza bag and
Decorative green gift box . An information card explaining the pysanka eggshell jewelry process will be included, as well notes on how to care for your jewelry.
About me and my shop:
Writing pysanky is a tradition that has been observed in our household ever since i can remember. It is a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation of Ukrainians for well over two-thousand years. I am proud to carry on this tradition. I create pysanky with traditional patterns, but i also enjoy creating fresh interpretations and original designs (like my beach-inspired seashell patterns).
The pictures show some of the eggs I have in stock at the moment or have recently sold. Call me about a specific egg you are interested in, or call me about a customized and/or personalized design (I can incorporate names / dates into the design). They make great gifts, especially to commemorate a special birthday, anniversary, new home, or just to give to someone special.
More designs will be posted shortly.
