tess' tesserae Mosaics & Upcycled Oddities

My nickname is Tess, & the tiles or glass or objects one adheres to a backer for a mosaic piece are called tessera (singular) or tesserae (plural, pronounced tess-a-ree). So the shop is called tess' tesserae, with the sub-title explaining a bit of what it is I do.

I started doing mosaics as a bit of creative fun in my down-time. I found that I really like using found objects, used items, and other recycled bits & pieces. I enjoy thrift shops & the whole re-use vs buy new philosophy & I incorporated this into my craft. This is why I use the term "upcycled" in my sub-title. I think oddities is just a term I like & it sort of rhymes with tesserae :)

I am constantly inspired & impressed by many artists & craftspeople both online & in my local community. I like having the chance to share my creative ideas & items with others here on etsy & at local events.
