Eggs symbolize new life and joy during the Spring time. I have chosen to decorate eggs and use them also as hanging ornaments for Christmas. Originally I adhered to traditional designs inspired by old folkart from Central and Eastern Europe.
Later I decided to start creating my own designs, depicting animals, flowers and eventually buildings, bridges and lighthouses. Besides that, I have also developed a concept of the International Snowman and the Rainbow collection.
International Snowman holds a flag of a certain country with an inscription of Merry Christmas in that particular language. The Rainbow collection promotes diversity and love with designs that include a rainbow in the shape of a small heart.
Each ornament can be personalized or customized with an inscription of your choice.
