When I saw this frame I knew I had to use this dichroic glass in a mosaic for it. The pink matches exact! It was fun just to make a flower out of my imagination. Smiley

Also it is very versatile since it can be hung or put on a table. It can be oriented horizontal or vertical, too. Smiley
Thanks for looking!

Striking piece!  Is the center cut with a ring saw - or how did you manage that?  I like the differing grout colors as well.

Used my Taurus 3 ringsaw to cut the spiral. It is one of my favorite tools lately. Smiley

ooohh!  I've been eyeing one of those!  How steep is the learning curve on the ring saw?  I've not used one before - I'm a bit intimidated to try one out.

The T3 comes with a video after watching I was up and running in no time. They are really easy to use. The problem is keeping control of yourself with all the new avenues it opens in your creative ideas.
