Artist J. Brooke Patterson of Oakland, CA creates these small dioramas using real quail eggs, which come fresh from the local grocery. The outside of the shells are left in their wonderfully speckled natural selves, while the interior scenes are crafted with paper, fabric, clay and other natural and found materials. They are then filled with clear resin, so they are solid and no longer fragile. These unique pieces can be worn on a long necklace as well as used as a decorative home ornament. Each comes in a small kraft gift box with a wire ornament hanger and may vary slightly from image.
