Eggshell brooch.

Last year I published a series of posts about the eggshell brooches my mom made in the 1970s. They were made by blowing out the egg, using a Dremel tool to cut the cabachon shape, and decoupaging a picture onto the eggshell before placing it in the bezel. I found a similar brooch on Etsy.
I suspect the flowers are decoupaged rather than handpainted on this piece, but it is a lovely brooch all the same.
