A New Mosaic Cross

Here are the pictures:

And the detail shot:

The cross is a Grandmother gift ~ a special gift honoring the birth of the recipient's granddaughter. It is on my smallest cross base ~ 4" x 6" ~ and the background is pieced with matte iridescent white glass (it doesn't show up as much in the pictures but it's beautiful!).

The flowered cross in the middle was created by a fellow artist Jean West. She specializes in fused glass and incorporates her creations into beautiful jewelry. I was fortunate to meet Jean last Fall at a show in Houston and I spent a few hours in her studio a few weeks ago. Talk about inspiration! She's an amazing person and her artwork is fabulous. You can check out her site at www.jwestbeads.com You will definitely be seeing more of her pieces appearing in my artwork.

A Few New Mosaics

A few new mosaics to share. Enjoy!

A Baptism mosaic cross for a baby boy from his Godparents:

Two personalized mosaic angels for siblings . . . just because (and sometimes that's the best reason!):

I've shared this cross before (see Rachael's Cross post) but I took pictures with better lighting and wanted to share again:

That's it . . . hope your week started off happy!

Showing love . . . the mosaic way!

I just finished a new mosaic cross and a new mosaic picture frame:

So . . . are you wondering how these mosaics "show love the mosaic way." Well ~ let me share their "stories."

Last summer ~ I received a phone call from a client and she told me about a broken Pyrex kitchen bowl she had. She explained that the bowl was very special to her and her husband as it has been in the family for several generations. They were both sick that it had broken and wanted to know if there was anything I could do with it. The cross is the result. As difficult as the Pyrex was to cut and control, my client is thrilled with the cross. It will show their family love for years to come.

The mosaic picture frame was commissioned as a Baptism gift. I love the idea of the personalized heart . . . a great way to show love for a beautiful new baby and her family.

My artwork is the perfect way to show your love . . . not only at Valentine's Day . . . but year round. Need a wedding, baby or house warming gift? Does your sister or dear friend have a birthday coming up? Are you looking for the perfect gift for a teacher or Sunday School leader? My mosaics are perfect . . . and the really great thing is that they can be customized to suit your needs and/or desires. Who are you going to show your love to?

Happy Valentine's Day. I hope that today finds you with a joyful and happy heart!

The Angels are here to stay!

My mosaic angel ornaments have been so popular at Christmas time and I've had several requests to offer them all year . . . so I am! There's a new Angels page on my website where you can get more info and details on how to place your order. Here are a few more pictures that didn't fit onto the website:

A few Personalized Angels:

And ~ of course ~ the Charity Angels (proceeds go to the applicable charity):

I so enjoy creating these angels and watching their little personalities come to life as I add their hair, face, wings and robe. They are so sweet and fun. I'm sure you have several people in your life who need their very own guardian angel. : )
