This is a mosaic I made for a tree swap here on Craftster.

The substrate is a cross section of a tree. I used glass, wire and marbles, and the adhesive was MAC.



Here are some in process images.












Back says: "it is a tree of life for those who grasp it."




Thank you for looking. Comments, questions and suggestions welcome! Smiley

That is absolutely beautiful!  Did you buy the little pieces of glass as is or did you cut them from a larger piece of glass? The fading of dark to light from top to bottom is reaaaaally well done.
