Loving AMIdesigns!

I just wanted to show off what I've just bought from AMIdesigns, who opened her Misi Shop today.  I've admired Alison's jewellery for ages and as soon as I saw these in her Misi shop I decided I had to have them!  It's nice to treat yourself now and then though isn't it!?

First attempt at an Oval Mosaic Mirror...

I've been packing a mirror up tonight that a made on comission for a customer.  The design was taken from a round mirror I'd made - the lady emailed me to say she liked the design but wanted it in oval. This is my first attempt at making a mirror in this shape but I'm pleased with the results. 

I'm going to have a go at a few more I think - any suggestions on colours? I was thinking of using black, grey and white is a 'mosaic mix' design.  This colour scheme is popular anyway and I think it would look good in this shape. I could then use it as an example on my new website (coming soon...!) but state that it can be made in other colours?  Any votes on other colours?

Well, here goes, my first post!  I'm Kate, I'm 26 and I love making mosaics.  What started as a gift for a friend has turned in to a range of over 50 designs of mirrors, clocks, coasters, photo frames and candle holders.  At the moment, I sell my work online at the moment through my Ebay shop

I live in Staffordshire with my boyfriend and our border collie Jessie.  I work full time to pay the bills and craft at weekends.  One day I'm hoping to do less of the 'day job' and be able to concentrate more on my crafts.  When that happens I'll be sure to post about it!
