Please feel free to view my egg galleries and sign my guestbook!
I started egging about 15 years ago when my parents started an emu farm; The Worley Bird Emu Ranch in Cottonwood, CA.
I work as a registered dental assistant for a dentist in Elk Grove, CA; a small town south of Sacramento. I use a highspeed dental drill that rotates at over 450,000 rpm and a dremel to carve through the 4 different layers of color found in the emu shells.
The outer layer of an emu egg is a beautiful emerald green, sometimes, almost black. Carving down past the outer layer reveals a grayish color then under that is a wonderful teal or turquoise color. Beyond the 2nd layer is a pure white, which is the final layer before cutting all the way through.
I use all the colors found naturally within the shell and I carve away the shell completely to create my egg sculptures.
You will not find any paint, glues or dyes on my eggs. I like to keep them in their most natural state! I use a UV protective spray to keep the egg's natural colors from fading. Natural might and artificial lighting will fade the emu egg to a gray if not protected.
Every egg is one of a kind ~ no two egg designs are ever alike! All my sculptures are signed, numbered and a Certificate of Authenticity is issued to each registered owner.
Please visit the Gallery to view more eggs. Keep in mind, I'll custom make any egg. If you would like to order an egg sculpture or any comments.... E-mail me @ JodyRDA@AOL.Com 0rJodyRDA@comcast.net.
