My Mosaic Challenge Entry

The Etsy Mosaic Artists (ema) street team is having their first mosaic challenge- "Make your Kitchen Bitchen".

I went to the thrift store for inspiration and found this cool escargot plate. Now, this is something that is normally not in my kitchen (tried escargot once and they were just way too salty for me) but now that it is mosaiced, you can only use this for decoration anyway.

As usual, I used stained glass to piece the design. Each of the 12 circles has a different pattern- two are almost identical, but not quite. The plate diameter is 8" and each circle is a bit over an inch wide- lots of tiny pieces! Today was such a grey, windy day. I'm hoping for a bit more sun tomorrow to take some brighter pictures before listing on etsy.
