Wire Easter egg by UrsulaJewelry Wire Easter egg by UrsulaJewelry
There is an ancient tradition - to paint Easter eggs in Ukraine. As a child, I often did it with my mother and sister. We did "pysanka" - painted patterns molten wax, then dipped in egg onion peel. Obtained orange egg with white pattern.
It was a very enjoyable craft - we sat by candlelight family, were calm and unhurried conversations became closer to each other. I love spring holiday of Easter. I myself bake festive bread for this day and decorate the eggs with his little daughter.
But today I'll show you an egg that I made from a copper wire. I used Swarovski beads of sky-blue and ivory color. This colors very well with copper and symbolize spring sky. This egg is the size of typical chicken eggs, but I want to try to do even bigger.

Beautiful!

When I was in high school, our German language teacher was from Ukraine.  One week when we had a special program of alternative classes we could take, she taught a class on traditional Ukrainian Easter Egg painting (wax and candles and all that stuff).  I took her classes and loved it!  I still have some of the eggs I did in that class, low these many, many years ago.

Really like how you've captured the essence of this grand tradition in wire and beads!

Lol! Yeah but they didn't wire-wrap them!!! You bridged the gap between wire-wrapping and Faberge!! I love the story of you and your family painting eggs by the way. Such lovely memories to have that you are now passing on too.
