Library Journal Review

The jeweled enamel Easter eggs fashioned by Peter Carl Faberg? in pre-revolutionary Russia are the inspiration for these step-by-step decorated egg projects. Real goose eggs are cut, hinged, and elegantly embellished with bits of braid, pearls, and even a miniature clock. Mounted on miniature stands, the finished eggs are quite exquisite. These projects will take some practice, but the results will be heirlooms. Recommended for all public library crafts collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
