35 Pieces and Ball Chain

It only took 35 pieces – of this and that – to create one of my favorite mosaic tile light switch covers.  I used a hard plastic double light switch cover, an antique rhinestone brooch, purple iridescent tile, purple beads, black and white Millefori, a clear glass gem, silver tile and silver ball chain. light switch cover

Glued the brooch and purple iridescent tile border first, then glued the rest and let it dry before gluing the ball chain around the edges.

After the glue dried, I used a charcoal grout to make it  pop! Chaz loves it!  Me too but …

Bubbes Brooch – SOLD

I’ve come to terms with the fact that this piece and many others – from my private stash – have to be sold since all of my light switches, walls and floors are already covered. Less is more unless you need a groovy new light switch cover.

THROW BACK THURSDAY another blast from the past … 

The antique cupboard was loaded to the brim with vintage glass objects waiting and wanting.

My goal was three glass on glass windows by month’s end.

Peace of Santa

The Santa head sat in a jar, with other doll heads, until he went on to become a part of this beloved Mosaic Tile Holiday Sign created during a mosaic tile class of the past.

This peace was created with a bit of vintage china, glass gems, glass hearts, pennies and a little peace of Santa all glued and grouted on to a vintage wood sign with a hanger.

Peace of Santa is an older chap who has led a gently loved life – with some minor bumps but not bruises –  and the finished peace measures approximately 8″ inches long x 4″ wide x 1″ deep with a built-in wire hanger and black painted back. On Sale Now! 

Proceeds from this peace will be donated to a local food shelf in the North Country. Thank you.
