This is a 20 x 16 Framed Shotgun House Mardi Gras Bead Mosaic constructed from Mardi Gras parade throws.The beads on this mosaic came straight from the parades of the 2012 Carnival Season.

Each year seven thousand tons of Mardi Gras beads are thrown away. Only 2 percent are recycled. My solution is to take the Mardi Gras beads and make them into art. I repurpose, or rather upcycle, Mardi Gras Beads into household items and art. I only use beads that I have caught, ,my friends have caught, or that I have purchased from a local Mardi Gras Bead Recycling center (such as ARC in New Orleans) in order to not contribute to more waste.

Details of the Shotgun House Art:

The mosaic is completely made of Mardi Gras Beads.

It is placed within a traditional black frame (20 x 16).

The mosaic minus the frame is 20 inches wide x 16 inches tall.

With the frame, it is 24.5 inches wide x 21.5 inches tall.


I take extreme care when shipping my mosaics due to the fact that a little bit of love went into each piece. I wrap them and place them within the appropriate parcel. I also purchase shipping insurance on each piece.

For International Shipping, message me for a quote. The price below is just a placeholder.

Custom Orders:

I make custom pieces such as this House in different colors and different animals. Custom pieces take 3 to 4 weeks to make depending on the size and complexity. Please message me with your requests. I paint the design and send you a proof before I start working on the mosaic portion. That ensures that you get exactly what you want.

If you have any other questions feel free to message me. I will respond within 24 hours of your message and most of the time I respond within an hour or two of your message.
