I am thrilled to introduce my Hearts Collection as the latest group of pieces I’ve created at The Shard Art Shoppe. I feel so blessed that their release comes just in time for February-with it being American Heart Month and Valentine’s Day!
As with all of my collections, I used material from meaningful objects to design my hearts. My beloved mother’s house was recently burglarized and all of her gorgeous Depression glassware smashed. Determined not to waste the gorgeous treasures my mother had begun collecting back in the 1930’s, I decided to repurpose the crushed glass to create something new and beautiful! I love making each of my pieces unique. So, I also incorporated other materials into my Hearts Collection such as agate, china, mirror, stones and crystal. Then, for fun, I enhanced many of the pieces with totally different mediums-everything from scrap metal to vintage locks and keys!
After designing each of my hearts, I applied ArtResin as the finishing touch. ArtResin is what truly sets this type of mosaic glass art aside from the traditional style of mosaics. It provides a beautifully rich and glossy look to each piece, while sealing in the beauty of the glass ensuring it will last forever. It is truly a wonderful product!I am thrilled to introduce my Hearts Collection as the latest group of pieces I’ve created at The Shard Art Shoppe.
