A member wanted me to start a new thread and post more photos of my mosaics, so here goes:
This is the top to a pedestal table.

This is a birdhouse for indoor decor only.  Each side of the roof and all four sides are different, but with the same color scheme.  I used a glass compote for the pedestal and then painted some of the etched part and added jewelry.

This is a silver tray with a Scottish theme.  I stayed at  a Scottish Bed and Breakfast on vacation and took this project along to work on and finished it in one weekend and left it for the Innkeeper as a token of my appreciation.

This is a Victorian Woman theme picture frame.  I bought all the objects in a box lid at an auction and decided to incorporate them into a mosaiced frame.

    I have a shed full of crockery that I have been saving to do such things but where can I learn the process, supplies and components. Can you please refer me to books or classes? Like how do you get the edges smooth? I love your work, it is meticulously wonderful. If I saw it in person I think I would get high from it, surely it is intoxicating to my soul.

      Library is a good place to start. I borrowed a book on assorted crafts and it had quite a bit on this process. There is always You Tube as well!
