Announcement   FREE (small) gift with purchase, just for fun.
AND, please note, you can use the following coupons:
10ON250 to get 10% off any order of $250 or more

Welcome to my shop, where I sell my handmade glass mosaic art. Each object is unique, and carefully designed and crafted.
I have only a small selection in my shop, because I work slowly, paying a lot of attention to the quality of the mosaics. Please do drop by often, because the selection of items for sale does change regularly.
My work varies from the simple small flower vase you can bring someone for a birthday, to a large mosaic fruit commission by Walt Disney Imagineering, and anything in between. The full range can be seen on www.lauraleonmosaics.com

Also, you can see a fun short video of how a mosaic was made here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Yv7_vJdSKo

Thought it looked lovely on the screen but even nicer in reality. Bought as a gift but tempted to keep it myself! The mosiac is so precise and perfect, it is a pleasure to behold.

Beautiful piece of art. The colours are very harmonious and it is perfectly made. I have been looking for a peace sign for my home for some time and this is the loveliest one I have seen. Very pleased.

About

If it does not move, cover it with mosaics!

I am a self taught mosaic artist, learning about techniques through books and internet, and practicing many hundreds of hours.
Each object I make is carefully planned. I first make a rough design on the object itself, and then collect all the tiles, beads, ball chain and other items that could possible be included in the item. And then the fun starts. I will test the colors and shapes many times before actually gluing them down, playing with the colors and texture, but rarely with the design.
I am meticulous about grout lines, they must be as narrow as possible, to create a clean look. I usually color the grout to match the tiles, and seal it. I will go over the entire piece to make sure there are no sharp edges (learned that the hard way, ha!).
The hours of work that go into each piece are never reflected in the price. Each item I sell is in large part a present to the buyer. I could not possible charge you for the fun I had in making it!

    Some people practice Zen to relax, I make mosaics. I love the process of combining different colors, textures and shapes into a piece of art. My favorite materials are glass, mother of pearl, and all kinds of glass beads and dichroic drops.

Questions about your order?
Please if you have any problems with your order.
If anything breaks in transport and you can send me the picture of how it arrived, I refund you your money and shipping cost immediately.
If you received the item in perfect order and are seriously disappointed with the quality (never actually happened), then I will refund you the purchase price if you send it back to me and it arrived all in one piece.
Payment
I accept PayPal from everyone outside the Netherlands. Buyers from within the Netherlands are encouraged to use bank transfers.
Shipping
Mosaics are heavy. I try to use light weight bases, but glass just weighs a lot. Shipping prices are set for regular speed shipping with DHL International.

The shipping prices are set correctly for one item, but for more than one item, it is difficult to estimate. If you want to buy more than one item (highly recommended!), please send me a note, and I will weight the combination and tell you the correct shipping fee.

Shipping to the US takes about 8 working days, to the UK it generally arrives within a week, but I cannot guarantee this.

If you need express shipping this is possible. It depends on the moment you place the order how fast the express shipping can take place: there is a 2 day delivery time to the US from the moment I can have it at the post office before 3 PM local time. So express orders placed on Friday afternoon would not arrive before Wednesday the next week. Express shipping to the USA costs around $ 75 for a single item, $ 100 for a package with two items. Express shipping to other locations varies with distance and most Western European countries are around $ 50 for a single item. Anyway, for express shipping, please convo me for the expected time and cost.

I take extreme care to wrap items carefully in layers of bubble wrap and a sturdy box. If the base is ceramic (which I rarely use), I even double pack.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to do commissions. I have done some wonderful commissions producing entirely new items based on a general request. And I have done commissions replicating an item already sold.
It can difficult for me to reproduce an item that already sold, in the exact way. I may not have a similar base, and also may no longer have that particular type of glass. I can usually make something similar.
Please also see www.lauraleonmosaics.com for examples of my work.
Privacy
Etsy supplies me with some personal information relevant to your purchase, such as name, address, and mail address. I share that information only with the shipping company so they can deliver the package. I do not store your information anywhere, I do not put you on mailing lists and I will not contact you for promotional purposes.
