Specializing in Pique Assiette or Broken Plate Style Mosaics


This Handmade Artists Forum member is so talented that I went picture CRAZY to show you only a part of what she does. This is Christine, of MemoriesInMosaics, who resides in central Florida with her husband. Christine does some fabulous mosaics out of a little of everyuthing, but mainly broken dishes. She includes lots of interesting extras, such as tiny flip flops, jewelry pieces, rocks, shells, just whatever she thinks will add visual interest. Christine shares a love with me for the color blue, as is seen in alot of her work. Some of Christine's work include small patio tables, shelves with hooks for hanging coats or hats, tabletop picture frames, mirrors for any wall in your home, and she even restored an old table awhile back in her blog, for which I looked and looked to feature but could not find.

Do you have a treasured piece that you thought was lost forever due to it being broken? Not necessarily so, according to Chris, as she can place those broken pieces of your treasured item into your very own mosaic, just convo her on Etsy, and ask her the details! She is simply amazing!

Visit Chris' Etsy shop and show her some love, http://www.etsy.com/shop/memoriesinmosaics.
Chris also has a wonderful blog chalk full of informative stories and pictures of what she is doing lately, along with fanily and friends at http://www.cbcrafter.blogspot.com/.
