The Kiwanis Club of Colonial Capital recently heard a program about the history of Fabege' jewelry and the jeweled eggs he produced for the Russian Royal Family. The program was presented by Matthew Duffy, a retired army officer who formed a company called Artel who now manufacture miniature Faberge' egg pendants and jewelry. Mr. Duffy traced the lives of the Faberge' family from their origins in France to Germany, Estonia and finally Russia. Pictured are Club President, Maloy Jones and Mr. Duffy.
