Rough Spring

1″ x 1″, glass and slate

I took a mini-mosaics mini-class online with Rachel Davies (who you should all check out),  and while other people’s minis were 2″x2″, I worked on a 1″ square pendant.  She’s a master with slate, and I remembered why I love it, for its rough edges, its brittleness, and its complexity.  And while today is gray and dreary, there are signs of spring everywhere.  I pulled out my shiny green glass to add to this pendant, to echo the bright green sprouts among the rocks and leaves, the greens fighting their way through the cracks, and the shine of the sun that will, eventually, shine.
