The shell must break ...

The quote inside this egg reads "The shell must break before the bird can fly". Unfortunately, the scans don't show the contents of the egg very clearly. A photo would be so much better, but I can't take a photograph to save my life. I have to rely on scans for virtually everything. I just loathe taking photos. Why is it that what you see is NEVER what you get? I have no patience for trying to adjust camera settings to trick the camera into taking a photo of what I am actually seeing or adjust the lighting so that the camera picks it up correctly. As I said I have no patience for it at all. If I could afford it I would most definitely hire a professional photographer, so until that time I will continue to cram everything in the scanner. But, enough of my venting my frustrations .... The egg is 1 3/4" X 1 1/4", depth is a little more than 1/2 an inch. The overall size (not including the chain) is 2 1/2" X 4". Inside the egg are very small clear glass balls, the tiniest gold glass balls ever and a white dove. I am just in love with the bird nest and eggs charm hanging at the bottom. I am working feverishly to get these on the website and make them available for purchase. I was hoping to get to that point by Thanksgiving, but I don't know if I can do it.

This one is stunning. I know I'd buy it if I walked through your booth. :)

I think you made this one with a huge idea of detail: thought about everything. Tejae said the right words in her comment, couldn't find better words to go with it!
