A piece of cherry cabinet from the Habitat Restore, almost all my broken chains,a few beads, a broken compact, a small mirror from the candle section at Dollar Tree, a few charms and odd earrings, and iridescent glass tiles from the craft store. The dragonfly is from some clearanced metal garden decor, that I painted.

detail shots

The tiles are very iridescent in real life.

Little frog

I'll go over it again and fill in a couple of places a bit more. But I'm pretty happy with how it came out.
EDIT-putting a link to my inspiration here in the top post, I forgot to do that when I originally posted! I don't know her,but this artist makes cool stuff. https://www.etsy.com/shop/TUTreasures?ref=l2-shopheader-name

It is lovely! It looks like some old Arabic or Indian art-piece.

That's an interesting piece with an exotic feel. I like the association of the colored tiles and the chains. Great choice of colors too!
