Artwork on eggshells have existed since the age of the pharaoh around 3000 BC. Today there are many forms and styles of eggshell art which include intricate miniature painting, jewel and gemstone work, beadwork, engraving, and other creative endeavors.
The unique miniature hand paintings of artist SarahLeah Beitz appeal to many throughout the world. Since her farm days in Oregon in the 90's, her work continues to grow in expertise and unique themes. Miniature art scenes and specialized art jewelry have been the most sought after. Hand painted ostrich egg lamps have also brought much delight and amazement.
While being born in Oregon, she gains her inspiration from the land of Israel and Jerusalem where she lives.
SarahLeah Beitz uses unfertilized farm duck eggshell. It is three times the thickness of chicken eggshell and is easily adaptable as her art canvas.
She also enjoys using farm goose eggs as her canvas, even though it has a rougher surface than the farm duck eggshell.
In some mosaics chicken eggshell is utilized. No usage of wild duck eggshell are utilized nor ever encouraged to be used.
