Ready to grout; will use black grout. 26 inches across. This was a large shallow wooden bowl that will now hang on the wall. Stained glass, iron pyrite flower, vintage jewelry, pearls, semi-precious stones, amethyst, crystals, glass cabs, glass globs, glass beads, pottery shards.

Really beautiful!!!! May I ask......what type of adhesive do you use for a project like this? I purchased a shallow wooden bowl at the resale shop recently and didn't have a clue as what to do with it! I'm clueless as to how you manage to get grout cleaned up from jewelry parts and other items with tiny crevices. I have seen others do pieces with jewelry and that has always amazed me as to HOW do you clean that up!

Cool! I love it.

You have a great eye when it comes to putting one of these together.

Thank you all for your comments. I use MAC glue for just about everything (except outdoors; then I use mortar). Cleaning up grout on something like this is quite the challenge. I grout as usual but then I clean like mad, and some things get left behind, buried forever. I use sponges, then terrycloth rags, then cosmetic brushes, and sometimes toothpicks, to try and get everything clean. I think on this one, I will grout in sections; it is too stressful to cover the entire piece and then try to clean it all off at once.
