Teeny 6 - NFS

2.75" by 2.75" plus frame - Eco smalti, dichroic glass
 
I've created a number of red mosaics during the course of the blog, and naturally have accumulated a fair bit of red scrap, shich comprises the majority of the pieces here.  Then I went for full drama on this piece by using textured dichroic glass as accents.

Teeny 5

2.75" by 2.75"- Aragonite cluster, eco smalti, marble

I've had several aragonite clusters (the orangey thing) for a number of years now, and I've just never found the right spot for them.  They either have seemed too small, or I don't have enough of them, that sort of thing.  But when I started these teenies, using one as a focal point just seemed perfect.

Teeny 4 - SOLD

2.75" by 2.75" plus frame - Galena, marble
This piece was loosely based on my earlier piece, "Greens of Nature".  The earlier piece is one of my personal favorites from the blog, and I had some leftover pieces, so this wee piece was born.

Teeny 3 - SOLD

2.75" by 2.75" plus frame - Black Tourmaline, eco smalti, filati

This was a really fun one, and totally followed one of my tenents of small mosaics:  letting the materials suggest a design.  I started out by arranging the black tourmaline pieces at the bottom, and it completely reminded me of those poles that you see on docks sometimes that always seem to have birds on them.  So of course, then I had to have a bird, and doing such a tiny bird was challenging, but satisfying.

Teeny 2 - SOLD

2.75" by 2.75" plus frame - Smalti, marble, pearls
 
Okay, these are really fun, and I really think they are cute.  I'm feeling sad I could only get 8 of these frames.

Teeny 1 - SOLD

2.75" by 2.75" plus frame - Eco Smalti, fossil crinoids
 
So I found these adorable frames that are just 4 3/4" square and decided it would be fun to take my daily mosaic even smaller for awhile.  The frames have an easel arm at the back for shelf display. Due to the size, these teeny mosaics are just $50.00.
