An Egstasy represents birth and re-birth,

as you can see, it is an egg within an egg.

And ... believe it or not ... that is up to you ...

each Egstasy is designed by my guardian angel,

which I call my unseen hands.

The proof is here within this site.

For ..... the more you know me,

by the more you read,

the more you will come to believe

as I have come to believe .....


THERE ARE ANGELS AMONGST US

WE NEED ONLY TO WATCH,

WE NEED ONLY TO LISTEN.


Egstasies are all created as tributes,

and this particular Egstasy was created

as a tribute to those we love to love.


CREATION TIME: 12 hrs 43 min


Much goes into creating these one of a kind

pieces of art. Such as searching for the items

needed to create the piece ... and some of those

seem to appear out of nowhere, just when they

are needed most. An explanation? Well, once,

I needed something that was a specific size

and could find nothing in my home that would

work. At which point I decided to go check the

and there on my welcome mat was an item that was

absolutely perfect ... someone had dropped it,

maybe it had stuck to a shoe, and had come loose

on the doormat ... no matter what the reason,

the why or the wherefore ... I had EXACTLY what

I needed to complete the piece I was working on!

That particular piece was The News Fountain Egastasy,

and the items was the stand that the egg would sit

upon, a small piece from an old lighting fixture.

A GIFT FROM MY GUARDIAN ANGEL!


Anyhoot ... we were talking about creation time

and what was not included ... such as drying times,

which are lengthy and numerous. Basically, creation

only takes into account the time that the piece is

in my hands ... HANDS ON TIME ... for the breaking

and chipping of the shell, as well as the Benameling,

the beading, and the placing of the crystals or gems.

Which means that the piece is often in my hands

for up to eight hours, without a break.


TIME DOES SEEM TO FLY BY!


You will see, in the picture further down,

that all Egstasies are beaded on the inside wall

of the outer egg ... and the outer edge of the

outer egg is also beaded, then set to sparkle

with a gemstone, or crystal, set upon each bead.

Delicate work that is very time consuming, but

the final results work every tick of the clock.


All Egstasies are created as Tributes, and this

particular piece was created as a tribute to those

that we love to love ... such as our most favorite

celebrities ... but also to include our all of those

that we love and cherish within our day to day lives.


Specifically, those that I had in mind were


MARILYN MONROE & ELVIS PRESLEY

HUMPHREY BOGART & LAUREN BACALL

JAMES DEAN & NATALIE WOOD





KATHRYN HEPBURN & SPENCER TRACY

DORIS DAY & AUDREY HEPBURN

and on a more personal note

my dearest friend

Trudy MacMillan





The Ist Valentine Egstasy was created

using a duck's egg and a cockatiel's egg,

plus glass beads and Swarovski Crystals.


THIS PIECE REMAINS AS PART OF MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION.
