About Me

Hello and welcome, I'm Diane and I am Mum to two lovely, lively and craft-minded children, Tayla and Arron. I love my crafts,especially knitting and crochet but my main passion is designing and making mosaics. I have been mosaicing since 2007, using a variety of different items. I suppose I should call myself a mixed-media mosaic artist. I also love the challenge of a commission!!! All my items (including those on Flickr) are for sale, just leave me a message for details. (I do have Paypal)

just like a bus-nothing for ages and then loads in one go!!!

Here is my latest project. I have spent lots of time, money and frustration on getting this piece right. No grout this time, but still coated so every little piece is firmly in place. This one is very tactile too, no sharp edges at all. My mum loves this as she says it's fascinating to look at with all the small parts.
Still can't get the photos right, the colour just has not come out very well, the buttons are all very vintage looking lilacs, the pink beads are a dusky rose and the dark beads are a very deep purple. Seems that the camera just doesn't like these shades!

At last something is finished!!

Well it has taken me ages but here at last are my latest works. The first two are something different, bead encrusted tealight candle holders. Have also finished another completely new item but have yet to photograph it....watch this space!!!
