I made this mosaic with a repurposed mail/letter box i purchased at the thrift store that was pretty in its own right ........but i decided to make it my own design.......
Some RS prussian or german transferware fruit plates in rich hues served as my focal points...and i just loved the art noveau type butterlies patina they are made of a wrought iron and were around a three wick candle stand of course i saw them as pretty additions to my mosaics and a hammer freed them for my use....... they surround the top of this note box and give it that special romantic charm that i just love...........i framed the front with italian adventurine twistie glass rods and heart millifiore rods hand cut .....so they are very rough and tie in nice with folky tuscany shades and sahara tan grout that was used. I decide to keep the hardware on it since it was in nice like new condition and went well with my design.....the inside of the box/top is lined in crused velvet type material and is in nice conditioni would have pictured this but i am only allowed 5 pictures and thought that showing all sides was more important......
I just love the way this turned out it is prettier than i imagined.......I hope you love it too
All my designs are one of a kinda copyrighted signed and numbered original works of art........limited to an edition of 1.... no one will have one like it .............they make great conversation pieces....
