Finding working in miniature is a nice change for me. This one has 6 lavender roses (hence the name). Wink Completed mosaic area is 2 x 3.

The mosaic is stained glass, tempered glass, polymer clay, grout, glue and frame. Think I will be doing more minis. Smiley

This would be lovely if it were a full size piece but the fact that it's so tiny makes it AMAZING!!

The colors are so soothing and lovely together!  My goodness--it is TINY!!!

How do you keep from getting cut on those little shards (like the green leaves!)...?  Do you wear gloves?  I would think it would be hard to do such tiny work with gloves, though...

Anyway, it is a lovely piece...thanks for sharing (the frame you chose fits the piece perfectly!)

Thank you!

And just know when you do mosaics, you leave a little DNA on all your pieces. There is virtually no way to not get cute. Some days are less bloody than others. Smiley
