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.
