Brown and black geometric Pysanka pendant
This pendant is made from the shell of a Ukrainian Easter Egg (Pysanka). It features a traditional geometric design, in black on a brown egg. The original Pysanka from which this piece of shell came was broken, which can be seen in some of the edge imperfections. The epoxy clay in which the shell is set serves to stabilize and protect the egg shell, giving it strength and durability. The laquer over top of the shell preserves the designed portion. The bezel setting and chain are copper (sealed to prevent discolouration).

Materials: copper; epoxy clay; egg shell; clear lacquer

Measurements: pendant - 2 cm long; 2 cm wide (3/4 inches long; 3/4 inches wide); chain - 47 cm long (18.5 inches long)
