Red striped Pysanka pendant
This pendant is made from the shell of a Ukrainian Easter Egg (Pysanka). It features a geometric design, in shades of red.  The original Pysanka from which this piece of shell came was broken, which can be seen in some of the surface and 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 antique gold tone plated (lead free and nickel free).

Measurements: pendant - 4 cm long; 2.5 cm wide (1 1/2 inches long; 1 inch wide); chain - 50.5 cm long (20 inches long)
