I had the opportunity to learn a new craft this past weekend from HSG, our glass crafts board moderator.  She brought mosaic pendant supplies to a small Craftster moderator get together.  I've never worked with mosaics before and was very happy to learn!  I selected a few glass discs, some colorful shards and silver microbeads.  The decorative elements were glued into a pendant tray using E6000 and then sealed using a two part resin.  I fussed with my design for a good hour before I was satisfied with the placement and am happy with how it turned out.  It reminds me of the ocean.   Smiley

So pretty!! It kind of reminds me of a tide pool. I'm determined to get a personal mosaic lesson from HSG one of these days Smiley. Her talent rubbed off on you!

It's beautiful, and it reminds me of the ocean as well.

It was so much fun to make those pendants. HSG rocks. Smiley

It did turn out beautiful, MW! The tesserae you picked is for sure reminiscent of the sea.

Glad everyone had fun with them. Smiley

Very pretty - I feel like I want to pick it up and touch it.  Is it completely smooth on top from pouring the resin?

I really liked yours a lot, MissingWillow....I guess because I love the sea and it really did evoke those feelings...I love how everything looks like bubbles...very calm and soothing...I think the fussing was worth it!
