A recent development in the beaded egg is the icon egg.  Religious pictures, small icons, are glued to a wooden egg, and then the rest of the egg is decorated with all sorts of flashy beads.  Some have jeweled crosses, others have rose embroidery.  These appear to have originated in the Hutsul areas of Ukraine.
