X-Stitch Easter Eggs

 

Easter is just around the corner, and that means it's time to stitch some eggs! Okay, okay. I kid. These amazing goose-eggs were stitched by Forostyuk Inna, a Ukranian artist. I haven't been able to turn up any other examples of her work apart from this link. Anyone know of her work? I wonder how she did that. Curved needle? Beading wire? Magic? I started to think maybe they were halved and then put back together, but how do you halve an eggshell without breaking it? Any ideas, dear readers? I'm stumped.
