While attending UC Berkeley, where she studied drawing and printmaking, Brooke of California began creating handmade wallpaper in her spare time. However, as time when on, she found herself drawn to the life-giving nature of eggs, and began creating these ornaments for her family members. As she began to sell her unique creations to the public, the demand continued to skyrocket. Brooke now creates these inventive dioramas in everything from finch eggs to ostrich eggs.

This ornament is handmade from a real quail egg, which is filled with a small recreation of a robin’s nest, then filled with resin to seal it.
