I won't be grouting until this weekend, then will have these up on etsy Sunday. At the far left you can see the blank bases that I mosaic on. The donuts are brass and intended to be shawl pins, you could attach them to a dress or coat or anything. I add a stick pin with a matching cabachon on the head. The round and oval bases are brass or silver plated, I started making them as buttons to attach to a special felted, knit, crocheted or stitched purse and would attach a button shank to the back. I could also attach a pin back or add jump rings for a necklace, so I when I list these I will let the customer decide what they want it to be.
Off to work at my day job...

Sand and Sea seems to be a favorite theme so I painted more cloth to go into kits. I still need to add the fabric backing and batting and stitch, although I may list some fabric unstitched. Since I like hand stitching more than machine, I figured customers would want fabric already stitched, but unstitched may be better for some applications. If anyone is reading this I would love some opinions.
And finally, I will be making some more mosaic shawl pins and buttons tbis weekend to list on etsy. These are pics of ones previously sold.
