Creative Mosaics

The first mosaic I made was a birdfeeder about 10 years ago in a stained glass shop in Texas. I really enjoyed the process and end product. I decided to start my own mosaic business after moving to Virginia in 1997. The first products I made were birdfeeders and candleholders using cut stained glass and glass gems. I then started to mosaic different wood and glass items. I wanted to make something that was pretty but yet functional, so after a few prototypes I came up with a wood base for mosaic trivets. I made them with cut stained glass as well as glass tiles. The trivets are a frequent seller because of their beauty and functionality. My customers often buy additional trivets as gifts after they bought one for themselves and loved it.

I've recently started experimenting with paper to make mosaic trays and picture frames. The paper is sealed with 2 layers of Mod Podge and then polyurethane spray for durability. All of my products make wonderful gifts either for yourself or someone else!

I am a juried member of the Northern Virginia Handcrafters Guild.

Returns and exchange details
My mosaics are made from cut glass, glass tiles and glass gems, which sometimes have small divets or nooks & crannies. I try to post as many up-close photos as possible, so you can see any imperfections. These imperfections are part of the items character, therefore are sold "as is". I strive to accurately portray the colors in all of my items, but sometimes it is difficult to photograph glass. And computer screens vary in color. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, please contact me to discuss refund/exchange options. The buyer will not be refunded shipping costs to return an item.
I accept paypal, all major credit cards, money orders and checks. If paying with a money order, items will be shipped once I receive the money order. If paying by check, items will not be shipped until the check clears my bank.
Orders being shipped within the US will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail within 2 business days of receiving full payment. The shipping quote for glass items includes insurance.

If you're buying multiple items, please convo me with the items you'd like along with your zip code for a more accurate shipping cost.

If you'd like a shipping estimate for a country outside the US, please convo me with your city, country and postal code so I can search the best shipping option. Shipping insurance may not be available when shipping outside of the US.
