Thought you might enjoy seeing a few of the broken china mosaic pieces I have done. The pretty scrolly shelf, titled "French Quarter" is available for sale at www.ourcottagegarden.com under the Garden and Architecture section. The technique of using broken china, tile shards, etc. is called Pique Assiette and it is one of my favorite ways to mosaic although stained glass is pretty darn fun, too. I use old architectural pieces as much as possible for my broken china mosaics since I am an architectural salvage JUNKIE!
This is one of the sparkly belt buckles I made for a local boutique called Envi. They are constructed of TONS of pieces of vintage jewelry. I have loved making and wearing these wonderful repurposed pieces and, fortunately, they've been quite successful for me. People just love a dash of bling to add to their jeans or other attire. Fashion that's really pretty AND really "green"...who knew?
