Not only is this my entry in the glass challenge it is a gift for the lady who cuts my hair. She is a HOOT! Loves everything from the 50's and so this is in the rockabilly theme. Her maiden name is Harrell and she is calling her salon Hairells.

Ooohhh---love it!
I really wanted to make my fiance a mosaic guitar for his birthday, but haven't gotten to it yet.  I was just going to do it on plywood--I never thought of reconing a real guitar!  They look awesome and soooooo perfect!  Great job!

Very Cool HSG!  Once again you knocked it out of the mosaic park!  Amazing work. Love your choice of "flame" glass.   Wink

I feel like I shouldn't always tell you how awesome you are because there is supposed to always be room for improvement.  But then you go and post another AMAZING project and what choice do I really have here?? Cheesy

You relifed this little guitar into a gorgeous gift!  Thanks for sharing!

Thank you!

Earlier this week I delivered the guitar to Tracey, and she literally cried! She was so thrilled and I was very happy she liked the guitar. Grin

Its always nice to hear a happy ending like that!

I too, am hoping for another challenge---it really pushes you to push the envelope, and glass is one of my new favorite mediums, so I need all the pushing I can get!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
