Treasured Tuesday

Treasuries are so much fun! I love to feature some of the ones my shop has been included in, and the people who created them.

First up this week is Cindy from EarthMotherMosaics . In addition to having a dad who made beautiful wood furniture, and a mom who sewed all her clothes, Cindy grew up near a town filled with artists, which helped shape she is today as a contemporary abstract mosaic artist. Her mosaics are made with small scrap pieces of stained glass,recycled mirror, broken dishes,mugs, discarded wine and beer bottles, pieces of jewelry, buttons, seashells, rocks and stones, and even microwave plates on occasion. Here is a framed mirror available in her shop.
