Eggshell Jewelry: A rose brooch.

I saved the best eggshell brooch for last. This is my favorite one and is also my mom's favorite. She wore it often and can still remember exactly which suits and dresses she wore it with. You know how when someone wears something they love they have a sparkle in their eye? Her eyes sparkled just talking about making and wearing this brooch. I love the softness and Victorian feel of it.

Even though the exhibit of eggshell jewelry is now over, the small look into my mom's jewelry box is not! Next week I have some other handmade brooches to show you.

This series of the eggshell brooches was just wonderful. I'm looking forward to seeing other treasures.

Have a wonderful weekend.

This is beautiful! It is very Victorian. It would be fun to get together with friends often and make things. Too bad people are so busy anymore. Thanks you so much for sharing. Connie
