Long Live the Egg

German gem carver and gem artist Manfred Wild of the firm Emil Becker in Kirschweiler, Germany, claims he’s produced more jeweled eggs than the famous jeweler Carl Fabergé. Wild says that in 20 years he has created more than double what “old Carl Fabergé with all his big staff” put together in 40 years.
