Our products are genuine bird eggs, carved and decorated with Swarovski Crystals and gold plated findings and pedestals. They can also be ornaments. Eggs used can be finch, various quail, pigeon, guinea, pheasant, banti, chicken, duck, turkey, peacock, emu, rhea, and ostrich are most common.
All of the eggs are made by me, Doreen Monahan. I have no employees. Many are one of a kind as many egging supplies tend to be discontinued. So, if I have something fabulous, get it now, you may not be able to get it later.
Please contact me thru the contact page as I have a lot of eggs available. Many are not on this site. These are just a sampling to show the workmanship, and kinds of eggs available.
Buy one of a kind gift here. Or, I also sell certain supplies and/or tools used to make these eggs, as well as the complete kit to finish the egg. (excluding the adhesives/fixatives).
Doreen Monahan grew up in the tiny town of Bernardston, MA. I drove across the country to California after college to seek my fortune. It didn't happen, but the skills my grandmother taught me, sewing, painting, floral, decoupage, etc., came in handy when I met Elsie Steinwandt an egger, who mentored me in the art of egging.
Being in California, I was able to market the eggs in Santa Barbara area, at The Mole Hole, and in other stores in California and Oregon. In 2000, one egg went to the White House via Sally Fiddyment for the Blue Room Tree. Also, while working with Sally, I made eggs that were in Gumps catalog and store for a few years during my early years of egging.
After 35 years in California, I decided to come back to my home area. Although, not in Bernardston, I regularly drive there and have breakfast at The Four Leaf Clover with my brother Damon.
