Found a plate in a very pretty shade of green at Goodwill. Also found a string of shells and a string of beads, and the gold shell clip. I had the loose pearls and shells in my stash, and the big pearly piece at the bottom is from a gaudy necklace a sister gave me. I even found some wire plate hangers I'd had forever. Small round mirror from the candle section at Dollar Tree.

I'm running out the door,but I'll take a picture of the back later. I used a wire plate hanger-each end has hooks that go over the top and bottom of the plate, and the middle is a spring that stretches, so it's a snug fit,and there's a loop on the back for hanging. You can't see the hooks on the front because the two medallions/doodads fit over them. The garden mirror also uses one of those plate hangers,if you look close, you can see the metal hooks on the front. And thanks,always!

You know I don't have to tell you that I love this.  But I am excited that I feel like *I* could tackle a project of this scale someday.  Nicely done, as always.  Wink

I think this is the prettiest mirror you have made so far.  I just love the colour of the plate.

Thanks,scifimom!  The green is prettier in person-no way was I going to cover it up! It was 75 cents well spent.  Grin
