Side Table



This mosaiced side table was a huge job to complete. Mosiacing round legs takes a lot of time and patience. It sits on the floor directly below my matching perfume bottle cabinet. Italian tiles complimented the pink china and mirror pieces.

Wall Cabinet


A pretty wall cabinet that I keep my perfume bottle collection in. I used pink china and mirror pieces.
The little beaded tassel that hangs off the front was also made by me.

Photo Frame


A large free standing photo frame. I mosaiced the whole piece with mirror pieces and used black grout.
I would not recommend using black grout, as it makes a huge mess and is not easy to clean up. It was the first and last piece that I used black grout on!

Mother Urn




This large URN is part of a set of two. I called it Mother Urn, as I have a smaller one (not completed yet) which I have called Daughter Urn. I hope to begin the daughter in the not too distant future. I used white and pinky red floral china interspersed with mirror tiles.
It took me 2 years to complete!

VERSACE CHINA TRANSFORMS AN OLD TABLE



I was very lucky and was given a large box of broken Versace china. I found a old base and had a round top made to fit then applied the china. I also used some small gold tiles.

Broken China Urn


This large terracotta urn was made using broken china and dark blue glass from a broken bottle.
It is hard to see, but the broken bottle is rounded and adds more detail to the flat china.

Cow Print Mosaic Mirror




I made this mirror for my farm when I was in the "COW Theme" madness.
I found cow print china at Target and used blue china and mirror pieces to compliment the cow print.
