So the other day I was given some quail eggs that never made it to the incubator...

I've blown about 2 doz. and still have a few to go, like another 3 maybe even 4 doz.

Guess I can't call it blowing as I used a syringe. These shells are very thin. At one point the suction was too great, pulled the egg out of my hand and the needle shot straight thru to the other side. Stopped at my finger.

Broke it - vibrations from the Dremel. It only rotate at 35,000 - I know I'm crazy but have ordered one that does 400,000 rpm. Lack of vibrations will help my wrist as well as the egg.

Mended with shaved toothpicks, patience, glue and when the patience flew out the window guess it was replaced with a few choice words.

I'll do another one when the new engraver arrives.

Whale, I truly thanks ya m'am, I s'apprecitates the compliment.

Just wish I had the talent to design. I'm a very good copy artist but not a creative one. There's those that can and those that teach. LOL I'm a good teacher.

thank you!

Anxious for the new engraver - hoping it is all it is touted to be.

I did make a discovery (learning -learning) those white dots are undried.

Wasn't sure if I would like them clear, silver or gold. As it turned out I did not like them when they dried clear I painted them gold. Don't like that effect either - too much. So then silver is my next try- probably even do it on this one. If I don't like that I'll actually do it a white that remains white.

I believe the original one I'm copying from the 'net is using tiny rhinestones which is beautiful. You need to find tiny ones though as too big will look trashy. I haven't found any tiny ones I can work with yet.

Ya know, sometimes it's a well-spoken "blue" word that makes a job go right.

Look for rhinestones for nails. You can get them off ebay fairly cheaply. I bought the last ones from Fire Mountain Gems. They have a huge selection and also have filigrees that can work for stands.
