- 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)

First we have Flora, cream glass background with vintage cabochons, dyed pink shelll beads, green varigated glass and purple irridescent glass. She has gold teardrop beads for her hair.
Next we have Angeli, she is called this as it is Native American for "Spirit". She has turquoise glass with accents of red, gold glass and gold mirror for her wings and red crackle glass beads which has splashes of gold, green and red. Her hair is faceted glass teardrop beads.
Thirdly, is Victoria, she was given this name as, when I had finished her I thought she looked very Victorian in colour and design. She has pale pink/peach varigated glass for her dress with insets of silver mirror, there are also strings of old white beads and the accents in her wings are enamelled butterflies which came from a pair of earrings which had been broken. Her hair is made of silver teardrop beads
Fourth, is Nova, this name is Native American for "Chases butterflies". I know she doesn't look very Native American but whilst researching a name for Angeli I found the name Nova with it's meaning and thought it suited. She has accents of irridescent/silver butterflies together with silver mirror for her wings, skirt and squiggly line. The main body of her dress is varigated sky blue glass. Her hair is made of champagne colour teardrop beads.
Lastly, we have Cleo. I have used vintage black cabochons which have sparkly suns on them, together with white opaque glass, gold mirror and black opaque glass. Her hair is again faceted teardrop beads.

The next cross is all plain silver mirror accented with blue irridescent moons and yellow irridescent stars, these are glass nuggets, again bought some time ago and forgotten about until now.
Lastly, this cross is made using varigated gren glass with dark purple glass accent. The inspiration for this cross came from some polymer clay buttins that I had recently bought. I've used these as accents. I then found some purple dyed shell beads in my stash and added these for some extra purple. I grouted this piece in grey. I think this is probably my second favourite.

This time I have used lighter brown glass for the main parts and instead of glass I have used seed beads in browns and golds for the chest. Well being a female, she deserves some bling!!
Her beak, feet and eyes are a different colour too.
I have also reversed the design so she faces towards (or away) from Mr. depending on her mood!!
