The city of Aveiro is known as the Venice of Portugal because of its canals and lovely hand painted and colorful boats called "moliceiros".

The city dates back to the 10th century when it was known by its first Latin name of Alavarium, literally, "a gathering place or preserve of birds." The Moors invaded and then held it until the 11th century, after which it became popular with Portuguese royalty. In the winter of 1575, a terrible storm closed the entrance to its port, ending a thriving trade in metals and tiles. The same storm also created a reef barrier at the Atlantic Ocean.

These tiles are located on the facade of a very, very old building in the lovely town of Murtosa. To my dismay, many old buildings have fallen in disrepair and this is an attempt to preserve a little of the patrimony of Portugal before it's too late.


The tiles are approximately 2 cm x 1.5cm. WATERPROOF, lightweight and with tile design on BOTH sides! Earrings can come with or without bead/crystal.

All my tiles are replicas made of polymer clay where the image actually becomes part of the clay through baking. No glue is used in the process. The pieces become waterproof and scratch resistant. Due to the handmade and hand shaped nature of each tile, slight variations will occur, as no two pieces are alike.

Take a little bit of Portugal home with you!

Hand made in Portugal!
