Love is in the Air - and in My Mosaics

I've been behind with my mosaic work, but am catching up. This heart will ship out tomorrow to New York to our friends Mark and Jeanine who will be married later in the month. Best wishes to them!!

I wanted to do something really special and personalized for Mark and Jeanine. They are getting married at Housing Works bookstore in New York and I incorporated that into the mosaic. The center piece is actually the RSVP postcard that I cut down to fit right in.

This is an earring and if you look close, it features a dancing couple. I used the matching brooch in a piece not long ago.

And if you flip it over, I papered the invitation itself onto the back. Okay, how cool is this, a Velvet Underground quote on the invitation. If Jason and I were to have had an event for our wedding, this would have been right up our alley!

I'll keep the details private, but here's another view of the back.

And yes, more love in the air. Right after the awesome comic book convention that Jason and I attended in Aviles, Spain last month (great photos on my other blog HERE), our new friends Juan and Lola tied the knot. I made this frame for them and will be shipping it to the U.K. tomorrow.

More customized pieces coming soon. I'll also be building my inventory for an Etsy shop. I have people ask me about it and it's time to give it a try!

Kelly,I love both of these pieces but the heart is my favorite. It is wonderful, so many things to look at and all with special meaning to the couple. Love your work.
Hugs, Jackie
