Those of you that are regular readers know that I pretty much do anything craft-wise. But I do have few specialties. One of them is Ukrainian Egg Art, or Pysanky. I love doing anything with lots of details and Pysanky, as you can see, is a very detailed art. True Ukrainian eggs are full of symbolism and usually tell a story. My eggs don’t necessarily tell a story and are very Americanized, but the process and the attention to tiny detail are what keep me enthralled.
Each egg is made by using a process of melting bees wax and adding colors of dyes. If you would like to see how it is actually done, check out my tutorial for Ukrainian Eggs. Most of my eggs take about 10 to 12 hours to complete and each one of them is an original, one of a kind piece.
These Ukrainian eggs make beautiful unique Christmas tree ornaments and can certainly by displayed year round. They make a beautiful, one-of-a-kind gift for someone special. Be sure to check out my Etsy shop to see some of my collection. All eggs are shipped gift-wrapped and ready for giving!
