Decorated Duck Egg Emerald Swarovski Butterfly Jewel Box
• This item is a real duck egg that I've made into a jewelry or keepsake box. The egg was hardened first all around the inside with several layers of 2-part epoxy before the gold-plated hinge ring was epoxied on; then I fashioned a liner for the inside with pieces of beautiful, rich white satin and gold-colored trim. The outside is trimmed beautiful matching Swarovski Austrian Crystal chains, pearl chains and beads, flatbacks and gold-plated findings. I've used a (brass or) gold-plated stand.
• This beautiful collectible would make a wonderful Mother's Day, anniversary, Christmas or birthday gift (especially for those who have birthdays in May since Emerald is the color for that month)! It is a OOAK because I have made no others exactly like it nor were any molds made from it! The design is also mine! It is best to place this jewelry box in an area that is free from sunlight and up away from children and animals....such as a mantle, dresser, curio cabinet or bookshelf! Also, because glue is involved in this design, keep it away from heat sources (including overhead return vents from your heater)! Even though the egg is hardened with several layers of epoxy, it is still considered an egg and should be treated as such! It WILL break if dropped from several feet up because of the weight of the stand and other findings on it!
Item will be shipped via Priority Mail in a 7x6x6 box but I pay for the insurance and file any paper work IF there is a need for it (customer will get a full refund if a claim is filed). NOT for shipping outside the U.S.
• DISCLAIMER: This was an abandoned, non-fertile egg to start with from free-range birds! It was then sterilized after being blown. The eggs were not raised for this purpose nor were any birds harmed in the process of collecting this egg. This is just a way for me to use something that was left for Nature to take care of!
