Story Mirrors are a new endeavor of mine.  How many of us have costume jewelry of our mothers that we do not wear but can't bear to part with? Or some damaged  china or dishes that were our grandmother's but cannot bear to part with because of sentimental value.  Or even a collection of things that COULD be repurposed? A Client collects personal items and gives them to me to incorporate into a mosaic. Mirrors are typically 20" square but can be larger or smaller per client request.  Items that can be included but not limited to:  jewelry, buttons, dishes, china,  porcelain /ceramic figures, crockery. I take creative license in adding other design elements .

Evolution of a Story Mirror. About 40 hours of work. Mirror size is  approximately  20" square.

I made these 6" square plaques from pieces that I could not incorporate into the mirror.  Just two whimsical creatures.

It's all in the DETAILS!
