Title: Tranquil Sunset - Mini Mosaic Pendant
Post by: HSG on March 03, 2010 09:19:39 AM
Here is my entry for The Little Tiny Challenge.  :)

This is a mosaic inside a pendant blank. Approximately 1 inch square. It is made by gluing stained glass, grouted (3 grout colors: yellow, light blue and dark blue), then coated in resin to seal and made into a necklace.





Thanks for checking out my entry, all comments and questions are welcome!  :)

That would be beautiful at any size, but for it to be so tiny is inpressive!

I have a question. How did you do this? it's beautiful. Just bits of broken coloured glass or clear glass over a picture?

Hi aethelberga! Thank you for asking.
It is not clear glass, but stained glass (like you see in stained glass windows). It is a pendant blank with stained glass cut to fit for my design of the ocean with the sky and sun. Then I grouted it with the 3 colors of grout. Let that set and dry, coated it with resin to seal it all.

Basically it is a mosaic, but in miniature.  :)

This is incredibly unique and beyond gorgeous. I want one to wear around my neck and a matching one (only larger) as a window in my house.

Beautiful work.

Nope. Ran out of pendant blanks. But I do hope to order more when I am able. :)
