Designers Studioroom906 have created a collection of jewellery and writing equipment made of egg shells.

The Stitch Blooms Brooch (above) is made from the inner membrane of the shells, which can be reshaped when immersed in water, while the Childhood Memories writing set (below) is made from the shells using a high-pressure process.

"The generalised egg shell structure, which varies widely among species, is a protein matrix lined with mineral crystals," explains Nicolas Cheng of Studioroom906.

"This is a set of stationary and jewelry inspired by childhood memories, transforming the memories into pieces that remind you of your childhood with your mother," he continues.

    Who thinks of their mother and childhood when they look at eggs?! It’s a really nice idea minus the childhood bit. Studioroom906 must be bored of omelette though….

    who made the egg? well, a chicken, but then, where did that chicken came from?
    appreciated the designer concern at eco-innovation.
