As an amputee who often deals with phantom pain among other chronic pain issues, I found that meditation helps me deal with it. It's also a way to commune with Spirit. All of my creations are designed with a meditative mind. This distances myself from the "how-to's" and allows my spirit to freely create.
Each tile in this inspirational piece is handmade and textured with deeply etched stamps. Word stamps are used for the focal tile if requested. Before firing, a combination of antiquing mediums such as acrylic paints, mica powders, and metallic wax is used to enhance and highlight the designs. The individual tiles are then fired, then arranged in a pleasing manner on the board. If requested a custom glassed-in shadow box frame or an open frame can be added to the board.
The base is made using 1/4 inch plywood measuring 10 inches by 10 inches. Both available frames are rustic barnwood. The open frame is 1 inch thick. The shadowbox frame is 1-1/2 inches thick. A sawtooth picture hanger on the back allows it to hang on the wall or sit in an easel on your desk.
There are several example messages in the photos here. Wonderful views of the possibilities for tomorrow! You can personalize your mosaic for yourself or a friend any way you like.
This listing is for one handmade mosaic tile plaque. The mosaics shown are samples. I can print any short saying you want with sticker letters. If you have a preference - for instance more geometric, less floral or vice versa - please feel free to say so. Your mosaic will be custom made just for you.
The rest of the board will be decorated with tiles of perhaps a molded face, a stamped dragonfly, handmade flowers, seashells, charms, old jewelry, gems, jewels, and chain. I also have a few quote stamps, so ask about those if you want a ready-made saying.

My unique, yet affordable handmade beaded jewelry and clay wearable art pieces use genuine gemstones, Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls, glass, wood, fossil, seedbeads, polymer clay, sterling silver, and gold in necklaces, pendants, earrings, or bracelets. However, I save money and lower prices by buying materials on sale, keeping no overhead, selling online, having no staff to pay, and keeping profit low.
