A friend came to my home and saw this scale in my guest bath. She then commissioned me to make one for her daughter in law who has been dealing with an eating disorder for the last 10 years. The only thing I asked before designing it was her favorite color, and that is purple.

Here is the project complete:

Here are the in process images:












She will come pick up tomorrow, and I can't wait to see her reaction.

Thanks for checking it out, and all comments & questions welcomed!  Smiley

I love both of them so much, and it's really great that you are helping out someone with an eating disorder in the process!

this is similar to a project I did in third grade (a gillion years ago) I made a scale out of 2 pieces of wood with 4 springs sandwiched in between. I colored it with crayons or something (not NEARLY as cool as mosaic!) and the display read "perfect" -mind you I was 8, so we all know my issues go way back!- I'm so happy I saw this today, it looks wonderful.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

I'm glad that you are mosaicing again.  This is a pretty awesome project, and I agree that you should sell them.

Nice work, both of them.
