Simply Stunning, and very unusual Mother of pearl egg.
These eggs are made Mother of Pearl shaped around a coconut wood egg. The coconut wood is pulped and shaped, then painted before the mother of pearl is added, The translucency of the Mother of Pearly lets the colour through.
Made in the Philipines by hand the craftsmanship in these is simply remarkable. The shell used is in just 6-10 pieces, and it creates a crazed pattern as it is pressed onto the egg, creating a wonderful mosaic pattern.
As this is a natural product, the colour and mosaic pattern on each egg will vary slightly.
The Majority of seashells sold are a by product of the seafood diet in the country of origin (as cockles, mussels and scallops are in the UK) and collected for their food content. The shells are cleaned and polished in the UK to create a stunning illustration of the beauty of nature. The sizes quoted are an average and where shells are sold by weight the actual number you will receive will vary depending on size.
