I think covering mirrors is my new favorite thing!
This is a 7" mirror I picked up in the candle section of Michael's.  I scraped off the little non-skid feet things before covering it in clay.



There are a ton of beads and stones embedded in the mirror.  Howlite, imperial jasper, crackled amber glass, peridot chips, glass bugle beads, metal filigree leaves, glass teardrops, dyed shell sticks, and glass lamp work beads.

Sorry about the collage picture.  I would have liked to upload a few larger detail pictures but I'm having trouble posting with multiple pictures from my iPad.

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.

Thank you! I'm doing a Christi Friesen craftalong with Katersacres on Facebook and her blog.  This Friday's assignment is a mirror in CF style. You should think about joining!
