Pysanka Pendant -- Eggshell jewelry - Ukrainian Pysanka method with chain

This pendant is a one of a kind, and Ready to ship.

Handcrafted using a variation of Ukrainian Pysanka technique - the ancient method of wax resist batik. Lines of wax are applied to the emptied eggshell, using a small tool called a "kistka". The egg is then put into an acid bath, with the wax protecting the covered shell from subsequent color changes. This process is alternately repeated (wax/acid bath/wax/acid bath). After the full design is applied, the wax is removed (by melting it over a candle flame and wiping off) to reveal the layers of color underneath. The shapes are then cut out and smoothed/sanded. Copper tone embellishments are added before the piece is covered with epoxy resin. This will strengthen the piece and help protect the colors.

Size: 2 in round.
includes a 16 in antique copper mesh chain (w 2in extender).

If desired, i can substitute a 24 in link chain.
An organza bag and gift box are also included with each order.

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.

Check back often.
