Creating mosaics is my life!

Growing up, I was the kid that is every mother's worst nightmare to take shopping…the kid who feels the need to touch everything! Soft, hard, scratchy, smooth - didn't matter, I had to understand the object in a tactile way. I was also interested in anything creative and explored many areas, but none of them left me completely satisfied.

Then, on a trip to Sicily and Italy, my eyes were opened to a world of mosaics that I’d not known existed. After viewing the stunning ceiling of Monreale, the bikini girls of the Villa Romana del Casale, and St. Peter’s Cathedral there was no turning back. I was hooked on learning everything possible about mosaic.

The feel of the tesserae in my hand, the weight of the nippers or hammer, shaping this glass that is at the same time hard and soft, then placing each piece with my fingers. Mosaic is the perfect combination of my innate need to touch and desire to create.

My main focus in mosaics is wall art - but a little while ago I discovered making mosaic jewelry. It was so much fun and very satisfying to make - a piece of mosaic wall art can take me weeks to complete sometimes depending on its' complexity - but mosaic jewelry comes together quite quickly.

I'm hoping these little pieces of wearable art inspire a new love of mosaics in their future owners!!

    Mercedes is obsessed with all things mosaic. Most days she's creating larger mosaic art pieces, but every now and then gets a hankering to create super small. It's during these super small days she creates mosaic and micro-mosaic jewelry.
