Local mosaic artists and glass factory.

Today morning I will go to glass factory Spectrum Glass Company for tour. I can not wait to see the whole process how glass is made… I checked the company’s web site, all the information…. and soon I will be able to check it by myself! Mosaic ladies from this area will go and I [...]

Glass grinder – next step???

Do I need this??? I found myself in need of grinder couple times… (two right now ) When I was trying to shaped blue and green tiles to fit them into pendant, when I saw one mosaic with all the tile pieces with grinded edges… We will see, for now these are what I found. [...]

Success!!!

With friends’ help I tried my “new” tree and it looked like the glue worked better after couple of days. I had to do new tree, I put more glue and I waited couple days to test it… My first two mosaic pendants are finished!!! I am really happy, I can think about new visions [...]

Disaster

The glue is not good, flowers can not stay on blue tile on my new pendant. I was able to tear them of with my fingers so it means I need another solution. E6000 is Crystal’s suggestion. There are so many trees to make… Probably the tile is too polish and the surface is not [...]

You never know

I should finish pink box, blue frame or two pendants which are waiting to be glued… but not this time… This time I took paint brush into my hands and I made frames for my friend. The friend has beautiful hand made silk for sari… the pattern is perfect for as many different designs as [...]

Blue Project

The vision about squares in different colors could not leave my mind… I bought different kinds of tiles in different colors, shits of glass, glass cutter. I spent hours on cutting. First I was terrified by cut glass. Through whole my existence I have heard my mom’s voice “do not touch the broken glass, you [...]
