Art: Mona Mirror (sold) by Artist Dorothy Edwards
I often comb thrift stores, garage sales and flea markets looking for items to include in my mosaics. A few weeks ago I was at one of the giant flea markets held in Roseville and picked up a couple of lots of matched and unmatched costume jewelry. I started making these mirrors with the found loot and have been on the look out for additions to my loot collection to make more.

This mosaic was done on the infamous IKEA 10" mirror using mastic which I colored with black concrete colorant. The jewelry pieces (earrings, watches, pendants, pins, necklaces and chains) were embedded directly into the mastic, leaving no need for grouting. Grouting this type of mosaic can be messy messy messy, due to the nooks and crannies of the jewelry.

This piece is sold:
