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)

Dove angel, first of two new angel designs

I saw a picture of this angel and fell in love with her, so decided to design her as a mosaic.
I have used silver mirror for her halo and her dress is made of irridescent lilac glass which shines in shades of pink, lilac and green. The dove that she is gently holding has a gold mirror beak.
I am undecided about the face, as I think this may over-power the piece, being in black when the rest is so delicate. My other larger angel does not have a face, so I'm not sure.
To this end I have decided to run a poll on http://www.craftsforum.co.uk/showthread.php?44203-new-design-dove-angel-help-needed and I will go with the majority decision. Please feel free to join the poll or add a comment here which I will add to the results.
