I would like to have an egg carved as a special gift as something very unique for my daughter's wedding. Do you take commissions?
All the eggshell sculptures that I carve for you are bespoke and custom-made (even the ones listed in the shop).
Eggshells you see in the shop are semi customisable, where you can have the same design in a color of your choice and personalize it with names or initials and/or a date engraved on the eggshell.
Alternatively, if you wish to have a bespoke eggshell hand-carved incorporating a different design (a design that might have some sentimental value to you, for example., a design from your mum's wedding ring, or incorporating unique elements from your mum's home, where you grew up, or if you like butterflies, etc., I can work with you to create something truly unique and special. Simply fill in the contact form with your requirements and I will book you for a free 30 mins consultation call to discuss this with you further.

Yes, you can have names/initials and /or a date engraved on each eggshell sculpture.
