FABERGE EGGS

I have been fortunate enough over the years to have seen almost all of the Faberge Imperial Easter Eggs. They are too beautiful for words. Since I will never own a real one I decided a beaded one is next best. The House of Fabergé made thousands of jeweled eggs  from 1885 through 1917 many of which were miniature ones. The most famous eggs are the larger Imperial Easter Eggs made for Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia. Fabergé was given complete creative freedom in creating the eggs.  The only stipulations were that each egg must be unique and must contain a surprise. Of the 50 made, 42 have survived.

Choose beads with jewel tone colors to represent the enamel work. The tiny eggs show the Starburst pattern done in four additional colors. Choose shiny gold and matte gold beads to represent the golds. Choose a silver bead to represent platinum.
