How to Create Your Own Nest Egg

Tomorrow morning before you crack your breakfast egg and dip your bread soldiers into its succulent golden yolk, stop and consider that you might be able to turn this beautifully shaped, delicately coloured piece of nature into a fabulous work of art. At the same time it could start you on to a new and fascinating craft that will give you hours of pleasure and possible profit. Join with me and become egg bound, in this most pleasant and creative pastime.

Egg decorating has been with us since the 13th Century when, as a Folk Art, it was customary to paint eggs and distribute them as gifts, especially at Easter and other religious celebrations. This devout and deeply symbolic ritual is still continued and carried on all over the world.

Many countries have devised and fashioned their own traditional art form, and to this day they still practise painting intricate designs, and fascinating beadwork skills handed down throughout the generations. It is easy to recognise the country of origin when confronted by these miniature works of art.
