Announcement   Welcome to my shop, Memories in Mosaics!
I have been away for a few years but am now back part time making one-of-a-kind mosaics using trendy glass and ceramic tiles, beads and jewelry. I will continue to fill my shop with many of my creations including large vanity sized mirrors for bathrooms, mosaic guitars and home decor pieces.
My work is quality with attention to detail. I meticulously place each tile with care for the overall design and to minimize grout lines.

This is absolutely gorgeous! I read in your shop that you will be closing for awhile to work on your mosaics. I hope you'll be back soon. This mirror arrived beautifully wrapped in perfect condition. The workmanship and quality are excellent and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you again. I love it!! :)

About

One of a Kind Mosaic Wall Art

I had been doing mosaics for awhile when I came up with the idea of incorporating keepsakes and old costume jewelry into my pieces. I thought it was a great way to showcase precious memories in a practical way. Most people have an old teacup or plate that was handed down from their grandmother and it's usually stuffed into a box or placed into a crowded china cupboard where it can't really be seen. Using the idea of creating mosaics with pieces of your past along with a mirror for practical purposes seemed like a great idea to me. Hence, Memories in Mosaics was born.

After several years selling here on Etsy I chose to take a break from my mosaics and concentrate on my other 2 shops: www.memoriesofyesterday.com and discountmosaicsupply.com Now I am back and full of ideas for creating unique, fun pieces including mosaic guitars, custom vanity size mirrors and kitchen backsplashes. I love using different textures and shapes in my pieces which include beads, tiles, jewelry, gems, and hand cut porcelain tiles.

I am currently working on custom vanity mirrors with my signature fan design. These will be available in several color choices so I hope you will stop in often and see what's new. Check out my photos for a sneak peek.

    I live in Florida with my husband of 27years. I am a mother of 3 grown children and grandmother to 5. Doing mosaics is what keeps me sane. I took a couple of years off to start our vintage shop but am thrilled to be back doing what I love.

Welcome to Memories in Mosaics! I am returning after a long absence and putting a new twist on my mosaics. I will be adding several kinds of guitars as well as framed scenes I create using hand cut tiles from vintage plates and other mixed media.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal and credit cards,. I ask that payment be made within 24 hours of purchase. Once payment is received I will ship your mosaic within 3-5 business days.
Shipping
I will ship Federal Express or USPS to get the best shipping price. ***ALASKA, HAWAII and PUERTO RICO may have a surcharge. Please contact me for a shipping quote.
I am happy to ship internationally, however, I leave it up to the buyer to pay customs or any other fees involved. I do all that I can to insure a safe arrival but will not be held responsible for lost, damaged or undelivered items.

I bubble wrap each piece and surround it with Styrofoam. I then fill in with packing peanuts to insure the piece arrives intact. I also purchase insurance when I ship,as well as tracking that is included in the fee. My pieces weigh around 10-15 lbs and require careful packaging, unfortunately this adds to the price.

I cannot combine shipping costs as the size and weight of my mosaics require individual packaging.
Refunds and Exchanges
You will have 3 days to notify me of your intent to return a mosaic once you receive it. I ask that you ship it back to me within 10 days of purchase. Once I receive the mosaic in the same condition it was originally sent I will refund the full amount, less the shipping charges. Buyer is responsible for shipping the mosaic back to me.
If the mosaic arrives damaged UPS and USPS and Federal Express require recipient to save ALL packaging materials to be inspected for proper packaging before they will file a claim. Be sure to keep the box as well as all materials used in shipping. I will send the original receipt to you for you to file a claim. It is easier for you to file as you have the mosaic and the materials.
Fortunately, I have never had the occasion to use their claim services as we pack our pieces very well.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to design a special guitar just for you. You can give me your color theme and I will work up a rough draft for your approval before gluing. Please contact me for a quote and more information.

I offer Layaway on all my mosaics. Please contact me for more information.
