After arriving back home from a week in Wisconsin and Illinois visiting friends and relatives; there it was! My package from HSG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First off, this really cute necklace with shells and a bluish crushed glass or rock background.
It's on a black metal bead chain necklace.
Next is this mod-looking mosaic.
I told my husband it could be flowers or trees and he said, no, no, it's eyes from a snail. oO LOL!!!
The blue behind the "eyes" (or flowers/trees) is a metallic blue. I tried to capture it in my photo by taking it outside but I don't think you really get the shininess and brilliance that it has.
And check out that border frame! It's got rectangle glass pieces in blues and aquas and greens with silvery metal dots embedded. Even the sides of the picture have the mosaic pieces! I love the whole 60's vibe of this piece. It's so incredible!
And if all that wasn't enough, the last project is this spectacular initial mosaic framed in a heavy, hot pink, fancy scrolled frame! (It's not wooden. Maybe resin?)
The base underneath seems to be made with a multi-colored fabric (?) or paint (?) with fruits or plants. Guess I'll have to wait until HSG can describe it. Then it's got these clear glass triangles overtop surrounding the ultra yellow K initial that's practically glowing it's so day-glo! (LOVE IT!)
Plus, the four round glass pieces are like bubble-shaped magnifying the fabric, (or is it paint?), underneath from the base. I tried to capture this in my photo but, again, it doesn't show the 3-dimentional image. Here's another view but I still couldn't quite get the bubbliness. Or did I? LOL!
I love, Love, LOVE everything and I'm so happy! HSG is a super swap partner!
This whole swap was just great!
