Wow! All those threaded couronnes!!!!!!! 

I have not seen so many put together like that, and they are very thin ones, which I haven't seen before, - but what a Fantastic effect they give. A spectacular piece, beautifully worked.

If making wire needle-lace onto eggshells seems too intimidating, how about making it onto (or with) chips of sea glass?  Here's a jewelry-maker on Etsy:

I'm quite fond of the heart pattern! The little spider on the rock looks fun, too. I've made some other laces on rocks...guess I'll try this, too. I can imagine putting other designs on the surface of the egg, based on the outline of a pattern laid on separately (like the heart).  The stitch diagrams are nice and clear, too. Thank you for sharing this, Lorelei!
