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.
