Three weeks ago I came down with a virus and ended up losing my voice for a good 3 – 4 days, but although I’ve been very quiet I have also been very busy. I’m actually working on three different projects, but I can only share one of them at the moment.
I’ve made two more hearts; one has been ordered and the other will go into my shop later.
The other day I was rummaging through a suitcase full of old photographs, home made cards and our children’s drawings and the beginnings of an idea came to me. Now I’m not sure if the buzzing in my head was the virus or the new idea bouncing around! It’s part way in the making and the first one should be finished it in the next week.
I can’t help thinking these two new hearts remind me of chocolate and Smarties!
Over the last couple of weeks I have been busy making mosaic hearts to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day. They are all the same but different; the size and shape are the same, but they are decorated using different tesserae.
Probably my favourite, this heart is mosaiced in a vintage blue and orange china plate with an orange glass nugget to decorate.
This one has been mosaiced with a painted plate, showing flowers, trees and birds.
Next up comes a pretty pink and white Hedge Rose china heart.
And finally a red rose on a white background made from handcut vitreous glass.
These hearts are for sale in my shop but if you would like a heart designed in a different colour or style, please message me to discuss.
