Saw this poem and was moved by the words:
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
unseen, unheard, but always near,
still missed and very dear.
Author Unknown


Wanted to make a mosaic using this and here is the final product. Using stained glass, tempered glass, beads, grout and grout tinting.

The 4 sides are all mosaiced, and it can also be hung on the wall or be free standing.

It is beautiful...it made me cry... Wink Cry

I love how you did the feather...and that you chose a feather for this piece...it is something you can hold and yet it is so easily taken by the wind...

Lovely inspiration for your work...nice job!

Thank you so much, alwaysinmyroom. Smiley The feather idea came from my sister. She sees random feathers and is quite certain they are reminders from her husband. I tend to agree.

HSG, that is really beautiful -- the feather really makes it! How did you do the words? Are they sandwiched in clear glass?

The words are printed on stock then glued to the substrate and clear glass glued over that. Thank you, Sonjaboo  Smiley

This is a really special piece. The words are beautiful, as is your design. It's a very peaceful mosaic. I'm happy to see it honored with a 'best of' award for 2014 Smiley.

HSG,
Congrats on this being in the Best of 2014 list!

What a beautiful, awesome project!

The poem is so lovely.
It's so cool how you made it into a kind of tile for the mosaic.

The feather looks amazing!
You are so talented!
