Zippity do-dah! Another GYPSIE original. Look who's talking about wonderful ideas, originality and unique. I L.O.V.E. this. It has your touch. Questions - what are the silver tiles around the black jumbo glob above the star above the Lady? Where did you get the beveled mirror rectangles? I like the way you've used the two sizes of rectangular black tiles - looks like those I've seen at Lowes. The irridescent glass really shows well around the green cross top left. Well, just about everything is perfectly placed. Go, GYPSIE, go. Another gallery piece. What's next???

The silver tiles are a bracelet I ripped up! Yep, got some of the tiles you recognize at Lowes' on their 1/2 price island....didn't know what I would use them for, but I was buying grout and spotted them...Got the beveled mirrors from my stained glass shop that has gone "out of business." What's next you ask....LOL.......with my MADD, I have several things started.......just need to focus!!! focus...focus!!!! Mosaic Attention-Deficit Disorder..self-diagnosed by the way...>!

Yet another great Gypsy piece! Will you please teach me?
I wish I could do as you do and be as inventive and unconventional. It seems that mine always have to balance but I love yours and the asymetrical qualities of them.
Great job. Keep up the MADD, I think we all have a little of it.

Gyspy, you are amazing!! I love this piece, I too wanted to know what the base was, an old cabinet???

I just love how you turn all these different tessarae, into a cohesive, flowing work of art!!! It is just spectacular, we sure have some talented gals on this list. maybe we should have some kind of a class schedule and all your wonderful artist can teach us newbies/ever hopefuls, how to produce a work of art, from the heart!!

This is just beautiful..
