Mosaic Stained Glass Peace Sign, Warm Browns, Copper, Handmade, Housewarming, Birthday, Great Gift Idea – 12 inches

I call this my *Shagadelic* Peace Sign because of the groovy stained glass that I cut into tiny pieces making it look like a shag rug. The center ribbon in stained glass is the color of copper called Van Gogh Glass separating the warm palette of browns.

Painted in brown, signed and grout is sealed. Comes ready to hang.

Happy Friday!

Today’s choice as my Featured Item is another mosaic peace symbol. I’ll be adding more items to the online store soon (hopefully this weekend) and I’ll make sure to announce when there’s been additions to it.

This 10 inch mosaic peace sign is a particular favorite of mine. Using earth colors, there is something to be said for the soothing effect these respective colors have. Combining hand cut dish shards and stained glass, lots of cool Millefiori pieces, frosted glass gems, glass beads with flowers on them and grouting it all in charcoal has given this peace symbol a true feeling of peace.

I’ve added ribbon to the sides and painted the rest with complimentary colors in greens. There’s a D-ring on the back and it’s signed and dated.

This would make a great gift for the college bound student or a nice gift to give yourself.

Because I’m in love with peace signs, this week’s featured item is one of my favorite mosaics.

This item is named “Be True To Yourself”. It is made using vintage dish tiles in yellows and browns with opaque decorative gems, daisy Millefiori and a pendant that gave it its name.

This very groovy peace symbol measures 8 inches and has a lot of personality. The outer edge has a polka dotted ribbon and the back and inner edges are painted in a complimentary yellow.

Price: $38.25 ($25.00 each + $13.25 shipping and insurance) and can be purchased through my online store here:

More items will be added to the site as I unpack them, take new photos and of course make new mosaics as well!

Have a great weekend!

In the Studio

There’s been lots of prep work this week for more “Wish Upon’s” to be added to Etsy. Grouting and finishing touches are happening within the next day or two and they’ll be listed either Sunday or Monday. Keeping your wishes safe is the perfect use for them. I have pictures of them holding tea bags, candy and jewelry as well but I am thinking the stain that is inside the box could cause those things, if not used immediately, to pick up the stain smell which is quite strong. Wishes are the best use for them and what they were made for! They are a great decorative accent to any room in your home or office.

I was playing around with beads and the peace symbol ornaments yesterday and I think I came up with a larger project for them to go on. They are a bit too delicate to hang up as they are. I think the beads would fall off easily if they were touched a lot or bumped. After I made 5 of them I thought about the adhesive I used. I think it might have been best to use something different and stronger, but I really don’t want to take all the beads off and start over (I used tweezers to add each bead), so we’ll see what happens next. I have something in mind for them but am not real sure of the direction it will go, so until then, you can see how they look on my flickr photostream.

You can also see the window I’m working on. What a joy this has been. It is a very long process but once it’s completed it will be so cool. I have quite a few windows to work on and am really excited about that. As I work on this one, a peaceful feeling comes over me. It is quite relaxing to just let the design form on it’s own, allowing my fingers to make the decisions as to what comes next. I have been listening to music or have the TV on and just let the mosaic form as I do so. I like not having any idea where it will go or what it will look like. That’s my favorite way to mosaic. Let it flow!

I’ll be adding a Saturday blog post each week now which will include all the Etsy Treasury’s I have been in and made myself as well as the ArtFire Collections I make. It will have all the links in it to show them all in one convenient blog post!

Monday’s Treasury choice will be posted as usual. There will be more Treasury’s each week now that I’ve joined a few teams on Etsy. I will be sharing items from each team as often as I can, weekly for Home Gallery which was stipulated in their guidelines. I love making Etsy Treasury’s and ArtFire Collections so this is good news for me!

Enjoy your weekend. Make it creative!
